Questions & Answers About this Opportunity
How safe is it to work here?
Banana Island (where the resort is based) is a place with zero crime rate. The small community is peaceful with all members knowing well one another. No strangers passing by. The whale country -Sierra Leone- ranks as one of Africa's safest and in fact I experienced it as one of the safest in the world with friendly people.
