Small Group Tours and Holidays in Guinea-Bissau
Guinea-Bissau defines the very essence of ‘off the beaten track’; an opportunity to explore the farthest reaches of West Africa where few travellers have gone before, in search of lands and people untouched by outside influences. Our group tours and tailor made holidays to Guinea-Bissau show you a country overflowing with displays of authentic local culture, rich in natural beauty and with a rugged feel that will satisfy the latent explorer in you. The Bijagos Archipelago, a collection of islands where ancient customs still reign supreme and one can still see people wearing traditional dress, is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating places on the continent and also home to rare species like saltwater hippo lurking among the mangroves. Back on the mainland explore local culture and soak up the colonial architecture of towns like Bolama and Bissau. Guinea-Bissau is also renowned for its colourful carnivals, a superb occasion to see the full array of traditional beliefs and lively local culture. Guinea-Bissau offers unprecedented opportunities to get up close and personal with an Africa that sees very few tourists indeed – a very special experience.
