Bimbola Carrol is the founder of Visit Sierra Leone (VSL TRAVEL). He launched the company in Sierra Leone in 2008, after he returned home from the UK. While VSL started as an online travel information resource for the country, the need for revenue generation was immediately apparent for sustainability. This led to the setting up of VSL as a registered business offering the complete range of travel related services that cater for inbound Sierra Leone trips whether for business, leisure or relocation.

The Bradt Guide for Sierra Leone says “Bimbola Carrol has single-handedly done more to promote awareness of Sierra Leone as a tourist destination than anyone else.” Visit Sierra Leone is now the country’s leading site for information about tourism and travel.
