Tourism and Hotel Development together offer a niche for foreign direct investment in Sierra Leone. Prior to the War tourism was extensive, this has since drastically changed. The other the major issue has been the lack of suitable transit options across the estuary from the International Airport at Lungi to Freetown, the Capital City where the majority of the commerce and hotels are situated.

AFCAN Holdings sees an immense opportunity in this area and is developing the concept of a structural reversal, by utilizing the infrastructure and the beach heads around Lungi as a focal point for new hotel development. From this location tourists can access Freetown and the tourist destinations in the Provinces through daily excursions, noting particularly that upcountry tourism remains largely unexploited.
