Wilfred Sam-King

Managing Director
Sam-King Group of Companies



The Wilfred Sam-King story started with a camera. Life started off very hard for Wilfred Sam-King. His background was poor, and at a very early age, he had to work to feed, clothe and pay his school fees. As a child growing up on the University campus, he dreamt of being an academic but life’s experiences made him decide to become a business man. With his first loan, the equivalent of $40, he bought his camera. Soon he was travelling between Freetown and Njala, buying and selling goods.

Wilfred Sam-King is now one of Sierra Leone’s largest service industry entrepreneurs. He is determined to help re-build Sierra Leone and make it a success story.

He is the owner of the one of the biggest stationary and office equipment Supply Company. He has also branched into the tourism market specifically hotel management. His first was the Kimbima Lodge in Wilberforce. Then came the impressive 40 room hotel, Kimbima Hotel, overlooking Man O’War Bay in Aberdeen, which was estimated to cost about $4.8 million to build. 

His latest creation is the  $5.7 million Taia Resort Hotel on the Lumley Beach., which was opened to the public on the 25th of June this year.
