“Cape Verde ”

Rating 10/10 - Gemma B

“Incredible wildlife and birdlife. Lovely beaches, the best spots for sea and wildlife were not well advertised (which suited us!) but you needed a guide to find them. Our guide was excellent and showed us his country, people and wildlife. Having a guide with you endured a hassle free authentic experience. Roads, transport and electricity are temperamental, travellers need to go with the flow and accept this is not Europe!”

Rating 6/10 - Georganne U

“expensive for what we got. a very poor country with high prices. also was very very disappointed that we couldn't swim off hotel beach as it wasn't safe. wish we'd been told that before. Couldn't even walk along it in peace as got so hassled all the time - hassling much worse than India. Sun was the redeeming factor. also excellent breakfast at hotel although other meals pricey for what we got. ”
