The mining season is basically broke down into two seasons, the dry season and the rainy season. The dry season is when the river starts going down and continues until a week or two after the heavy rains start, this is usually from between November 1st thru June 1st (though it sometimes continues thru July depending on weather patterns). The rainy season is when the rain starts coming and sometimes doesn’t stop for a week, this is usually from between June 1st thru November 1st  (this also depends on weather patterns). A good example is the U.S hurricane seasons; most tropical storms materialize over West Africa. The dry season is when digging and exploration starts and continues with extraction until the rains cause water levels to hinder all extractions. Washing starts during the dry season as soon as extraction is done and can continue throughout the rainy season without disruption.

P.S. American Woodie makes a mean margarita!

I Wanna Be In Pictures Excursions

What is more synonymous with diamonds than Hollywood. Have you ever wanted to live out your Indiana Jones dream or experience the adventure of your favorite romance novel in the heart of the Dark Continent. Have your 15 minutes of fame while finding your special diamonds at the same time (this excursion is only available when the Wild Diamond Safari series is being filmed and is very limited in availability and guest must agree to all terms and conditions as well as pass a pre-reservation interview).


 Custom Jewelry Excursions

For the person who has everything or at least every type of gem, the conversation behind a piece of jewelry, and the fact that you had found the diamonds yourself, will empress even the owner of a top designer's piece. For more discerning guests, arrangements can be made to secure very special stones that will satisfy even the most specific requirements of size, color, and clarity prior to their arrival. These will come straight from the miners to Woodie's office and no farther.

Engagement Ring Excursions

Finding the right person to marry and spend your life with is as rare and hard to find as a diamond, which is why a diamond ring is the symbol of that commitment. What says how special someone is then to look for a special stone to create a one of a kind ring and a video of the journey from ground to finger. This tour can be custom fit for a single person on an abbreviated time-line (Wild Diamond Safari will even assist in a cover story) to find a special engagement stone. We will also have many of our own stones available in advance.

Romantic Excursions

​For the couple that have done everything together, there is no greater rush than standing in front of a kicker with the one you love, waiting to see if you have hit the jackpot. And who can say their significant other took them to the deep jungles of Africa to find a diamond that only matches their love in it's singularity.

The waters of southern Sierra Leone hold some of the biggest tarpon in the world. Records of the sport fishing organization IGFA have been made by catches from this area.
