From the southside of Kenema, we take viewers on a road trip straight to Karene District. Karene is one of two districts that were added to preexisting 14.
In this episode, host Vickie Remoe took 9 hours on the road from Freetown to Outamba Kilmi in Tambaka Chiefdom, Karene. She explored the country’s first wildlife reserve (Outamba Kilmi National Park).
Here are four lessons learned from this episode
1. Logging is the major activity in that part of the country, logs are floated on jerry cans so they can be crossed over the Kabba river and later transported to Freetown for exportation.
2. Outamba Kilmi National Park is the oldest and first wildlife reserve in Sierra Leone, it was established in 1995.
3. The 110, 900 hectares national park is the only home of hippos in Sierra Leone.
4. The word “Karene” means “Log” in Susu.
