Bungalow had not fresh water and electricity, as well as the whole place. Room needed to be cleaned up. $70 night looks expensive for what you get. The food was ok. The beach is nice. They said they are making improvements... They are very needed.

Tired of the weekend crowd at Bureh, the commercialism of Tokeh and the price tags at River Number 2, we decided to explore down a bumpy dirt road that took us to John Obey. What a surprise! Is this a lost paradise? :) After a boat trip around the lagoon in a dug-out canoe, we spent a relaxing afternoon on...

What an amazing place. We stayed four nights and after the first day it felt like we had already been there for a relaxing week. The staff is excellent and friendly. The food was great. Fresh fish everyday with lobster and crab available. We had great fun with the locals in the village and they helped us to get around...

Just returned from my 3rd visit to Sierra Leone which by tradition ends with a few nights at Tribewanted. Spectacular, deserted beach. Fantastic food. And a warm welcome from the local community. Very helpful with arranging transfers to/from Freetown and trips to local areas of interest, as well as helping with other accommodation needs. A place to connect with Sierra...

I stayed in Tribewanted John Obey in May, just before the rainy season. I had been living in Sierra Leone for 3 months at that stage and was treated by a friend to a weekend there. Accomodation is offered at many of the noteworthy beaches near Freetown. Tribewanted is that bit more special than what else is on offer and...

Our week spent with the wonderful team at Tribewanted at John Obey Beach was the highlight of our amazing trip to Sierra Leone. The location is spectacular - a sweeping, unspoiled white sand beach next to a gorgeous fishing village, the accommodation was pristine, the food delicious and the team so welcoming, engaging and helpful beyond words. The ethos of...
