WHAT OUR FILM FIXERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT FILM LOCATIONS IN GUINEA CONAKRY
The coast of Guinea holds many hidden areas of attractive scenery, largely untouched by human hand. Explorations of the inland forests top many Guinea itineraries, with forest elephants marching through the lush greenery and exotic birds up in the trees just waiting to be filmed.
Museums, Mount Nimba Nature Reserve: a world heritage site, the Conakry Grand Mosque and the picturesque Les Cascades De La Soumba, Dubreka, best filmed during the rainy season, since the waterfalls can become dry between January and March are a few of the film locations that make up local location scouts libraries.
A group of islands lying off Kaloum Peninsula with golden sand beaches, palms, and forested interiors, once a center for the Atlantic slave trade, today three islands are inhabited and have elementary amenities, while the remaining four are not. Motor vehicles are not permitted on the islands, but numerous trails provide for interesting hikes.
Straddling the tristate join of Guinea, Ivory Coast and Liberia in the extreme south-east of the nation, Mount Nimba marks the highest point in the wild and rugged Nimba Range. The whole area is an ecotourist’s dream-come-true, and comes complete with a UNESCO tag that’s intended to protect all the otherworldly and endangered creatures within: the viviparous toad; zebra duikers; pygmy hippos – the list goes on!
