Guinea might well deserve to be renamed Monde de Chutes (World of Waterfalls). The country's mountainous highlands to the north – particular the Fouta Djallon – could be explored for weeks, visiting a new spectacular waterfall every day, without running out of new falls to explore. The list of our favourites is long, so we will only mention a few. Highest is the 120 m single drop Chutes de Ditinn, where a short hike will reward you by a swim in its plunge pool. The spectacular Chutes de Kambadaga has two drops, each more than 40 m high. Adding to Kambadaga's excitement, a rickety swing bridge cross the river, just 50 metres before the first drop. At Chutes de Kinkon's 60 m drop visitors can play around on the very wet and slippery stones right next to the drop. If they dare. Here is nothing to stop daredevils from plunging dramatically to their deaths. Also worth a visit are Chutes de la Salaa, Chutes de la Soumba, Voile de Marée and many more. Avoid touring the waterfalls at the very end of the dry season.
