Kindia is a major town in Guinea, some 130 km from the capital Conakry by road.


People here speak Susu, like in Conakry and most of coastal Guinea.

Get in[edit]

The road between Mamou and Conakry was completely renovated in early 2023 and is in very good condition.

  • By car from Conakry in 1.5-2 hours.
  • By 5place/7place from Dalaba for 100,000 GFr, which takes 1-1.5 hours.

Get around[edit]


  • See waterfalls:
    • Voile de la Mariée
    • Cascade de Tabouna


  • Hiking:
    • Hike up the Mount Gangan. In the rain-season, you might have to walk through water. Locals might insist that a guide is obligatory and you have to pay for them, but the truth of that statement has not been double-checked.


There is a large market, hard to miss when wandering across the town. You can buy all kinds of locally produced goods, for example the local honey with a very unique taste. Ask local people for whatever you need.

There is a 1 Vista GUI bank.You can withdraw money here without a fee for visa cards. Societe Generale takes a fee of 6,900 GFr.




  • 1 Les Eaux de Kilissi. Lovely nature resort located at a river, but quite far from town (15km, 50000 GNF by mototaxi). Its location on Google maps is totally wrong. The restaurant is located on the riverbanks close to a small waterfall. Just 3 minutes away is another huge and wonderful waterfall. Rooms are large and with bathroom, a bit gloomy though. 300000 GNF with breakfast included, but apparently they take a little bit more from fote people (whites).
  • 2 Chez BZ. A bit outside of Kindia, within the village Friguiagbe. ~10,000 GFr to Kindia center by MotoTaxi, 15,000 GFr for two people on one moto. There is a restaurant, a bar with a table football and a nice swimming pool. 250,000 GFr for a double room, 50,000 for breakfast.

South of the city centre is the 1 Gare Routiere.
