Guinea is a country in West Africa bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west. It immerses you in an authentic Africa where tradition and modernity come together. From Lower Guinea to Guinée-Forestière via Fouta Djallon and Upper Guinea, the populations in their diversity reserve you the same hospitality, a distinctive feature of the Guinean people. Guinea Conakry is a virgin destination for tourist visits, the country has enormous tourist wealth in terms of cultural and natural heritage. Guinea is famous for the integral nature reserve of Mount Nimba, located in the south-east of the country. The reserve protects a forested mountain range that is home to local plants and animals including chimpanzees and viviparous toads.
It is the synthesis of Africa. Its four (4) natural regions are: Lower Guinea or Maritime Guinea with its climate marked by the monsoon and the rain forest (4 m of water per year); Middle Guinea or Fouta Djallon, a mountain range made up of plateaus exceeding 700 meters in altitude; High Guinea which offers a wooded savannah vegetation sparsely watered by the Niger River and its numerous tributaries; Forest Guinea which is made up of a mountain range whose highest point is Mount Nimba (1752 meters) registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
It is in the foothills of its mountain range that the main rivers of the West African sub-region originate. There is tropical coastal vegetation. It is called Africa’s Water Castle (middle Guinea), because there are great rivers like the Gambia, the Bafing, Senegal and the Bakoye. It also has significant deposits of bauxite (half of the world’s reserves), iron ore, gold, diamonds and arable land. Lower Guinea with immense estuaries cover the coastline of an important hydrographic network. Upper Guinea is the largest cotton producing region, it is also home to the ruins of Soundiata Keita and Samory Touré, the sacred balafon of the King of Mandingo Soumaoro Kanté.

Why travel to Guinea?

he welcoming land of tradition, country of culture, the Republic of Guinea is recognized for its legendary sense of hospitality. Indeed, it is one of the few countries in the world to be made up of more than 60 ethnic groups offering so many experiences in one trip.However, Guinea differs from its neighbours by the mildness of its climate in the mountain ranges. This mild climate promotes the practice of hiking.
The mountain range of Fouta-Djalon (Middle Guinea), with its fresh air, wooded savannas, forests, plains crisscrossed with rivers and fauna, is suitable for ecotourism. In partnership with local guides, several experiments are carried out there to supervise sporting stays: trekking, adventure circuits with bridges and lianas ladders, rafting in waterfalls.
The climate is generally hot and humid throughout the country. Precipitation takes place during the rainy season, the monsoon, from June to October. The dry season lasts from December to May.

Commitment to sustainable tourism

The authorities want to promote sustainable tourism for the benefit of local populations.Our commitment is to facilitate contact and exchange between visitors and local populations, a desire to bring people together in order to contribute to community development. The FARAFINA association, concerned with its commitment to make tourism a sector of support for community development, has implemented the solidarity program called Farafina.
One of the foundations of the “FARAFINA” Association is the promotion of the pond festivals which take place each year on the eve of the rainy season (the pond festival period is between April and June). In fact, for 5 centuries, the populations of many villages in Upper Guinea have celebrated the annual festival of sacred ponds, which is the occasion for large traditional ceremonies punctuated by dances and songs during which the spirits grant their wishes. These celebrations attract thousands of people each year to the region and to other countries of the world. We can cite the irresistible “dundounba” the dance of strong men, the wolo, protector of corn fields, the koma, a dangerous fetish as well as the exhibitions of séréwas (griots of hunters) and senna djélis (griots of cultivators).
The design of the implementation of its activities takes into account the economic and human development needs of the populations as well as concern for the protection of the environment.
There is an opportunity to participate in an inter-state Mali-Guinea Conakry solidarity circuit in favor of the inhabitants of the two people for the promotion of responsible tourism. Let’s just say that Guinea Conakry and Mali are Two Countries of One Lung.
