Come with on on a driving tour - Freetown scenes

Love going on a driving tour?  This is your day!

Freetown views and scenery: We recorded a video when driving around Freetown so you can see what we see as we drove around. The video clips were recorded in the last 2 weeks of August 2020.

This footage is fascinating as it shows the population density and some housing structures. You can see houses on the hills, excess water on the roads, puddles, etc.

So when you hear about flooding, you now have a visual and better understanding of the volume of rain and hilly landscape in Freetown.

  • Did you know that Freetown gets a ton of rainfall each year?
  • Freetown is hilly and on the coast - with a lot of runoff water from the torrential rain.
  • Freetown receives 2945.3 mm (116 in) of rainfall per year, or 245.4 mm (9.7 in) per month.
  • On average there are 149 days per year with more than 0.1 mm (0.004 in) of rainfall (precipitation) or 12.4 days with a quantity of rain etc. per month. -
  • The driest weather is in January when an average of 3.4 mm (0.1 in) of rainfall (precipitation) occurs.
  • The wettest weather is in August when an average of 791.1 mm (31.1 in) of rainfall (precipitation) occurs.
  • In Sierra Leone, the climate is tropical, hot all year round, with a dry season in winter and a rainy season due to the African monsoon, which runs from May to November in the north and from April to November in the south. Annual rainfall is considerable, from 2,000 to 3,000 millimeters (80 to 120 inches), with a maximum in the coastal area.
