Half a century ago, on 2 October 1958, Guinea acquired its independence after having been the only Francophone African country to have refused General de Gaulle's referendum, which proposed the integration of France's colonies into a French Community.

Endowed with a subsoil rich in minerals (especially bauxite), this country is also known as « the water tower of West Africa », as it is the source of the Niger, Senegal and Gambia rivers.

Little-known as a tourist destination, Guinea has a real potential due to the diversity of its natural regions.  Almost 300 km of coastline, with sunny beaches and islands, edge the Atlantic coast and form Lower Guinea.  To the East, in Middle Guinea, the Fouta Djallon massif imposes itself.  The savannah, criss-crossed with rivers and forests, characterises Upper Guinea, while woodland Guinea is home to dense vegetation, precious woods, and cocoa and coffee plantations.  This green region is dominated by Mount Nimba, classified by UNESCO as a “World Heritage Site”. The country has all the features to offer seaside holidays, adventure tours, spa retreats and environmental tourism.
