Cabo Verde: travel tip of the month


Self-driving trip on São Vicente & Santo Antão (8 days)

How are YOU coping with these difficult times of corona?
For us it is important to enjoy some freedom and to escape and clear our minds. It is in our vista verde nature to be innovative and to accept this situation – very Cape Verdean!

With this independent trip we promise you some untroubled days and a little bit of this freedom. We promise you normality – a little bit like „before“. We promise a world that is not dominated by corona.

The islands and accommodation have been chosen wisely.

For further information please check out our blog.

We are looking forward to seeing you and welcoming you to these islands!

If you book this „Special“ and travel before the end of 2020
we will reward you with a „Welcome Bonus“

As we say in Creole "Txau e até já!" – “See you soon!”
