HOLIDAY FEATURES

This Carnival we are going to discover Guinea Bissau and immerse ourselves in the Bijagó culture for one of their most spectacular events: Carnival.

It all begins with the arrival, from the islands, of processions from the Bijagos islands full of colour, rhythm and tradition. We´ll witness a unique carnival: a mesmerising spectacle full of magic, energetic cultural performances, traditional dances and Bijagó music that will fill the atmosphere. This is a trip brimming with culture and tradition.

It´s a holiday that perfectly combines cultural traditions and ecotourism. Our route will take us through Orango National Park to observe its wildlife and gorgeous landscapes including islands, savannahs and mangrove forests as well as the tabankas or villages. We’ll also visit the Anor region where we will be able to observe flamingos, African spoonbills, pelicans and thousands of European waders that winter in Africa, then moving on to Ambuduco to know more about Bijago culture.

This is more than just a holiday: it´s a magical show full of cultural traditions amid natural surroundings of incomparable beauty.
