A tiny country wedged between Guinea and Senegal, Guinea-Bissau is a former Portuguese colony in West Africa and well off the beaten path. Tribal traditions remain strong in Guinea-Bissau from the isolated Bijagos to the Baga; you will find many different cultures here. Most people are friendly and willing to share their culture with the few travelers who venture there. You may find the locals just as curious about you as you are about them.
The official language is Portuguese, however, most speak creole or tribal languages so itís a good idea to brush up on your hand gestures and miming skills before heading out to Guinea-Bissau. In cities, you may find French or English speakers, but be prepared not to. You will likely be the only Westerner around for much of your trip, especially in rural areas. But with preparation, flexibility, and a willingness to learn tribal traditions, youíll be able to discover cultures youíve never heard of and enjoy the scent of salty sea air uninterrupted by the pollution of Western life.Nature
The Bissagos Islands, an archipelago off the coast of Guinea-Bissau, are home to the Bijagos people who inhabit twenty of the dozens of islands in the archipelago. The Bijagos are a matriarchal society spiritually guided by female priests. They are an isolated, unique culture whose religion places great value on the land, which has kept the Bissagos Islands in pristine condition. Visitors can respectfully explore the dense mangrove forests, take canoe trips in the island-rivers, and look for hippopotamuses.
In the south, you can trek through the rainforest looking for chimpanzees and tropical birds. Hire a guide to show you through the forest and teach you about the flora and fauna. Consider a day trip or a multi-day camping excursion to see the nocturnal fauna and do a little stargazing if you can see through the forest canopy.Cheap
Virtually undiscovered by tourists and still a developing country, Guinea-Bissau is extremely cheap. Even travelers who pay more than the locals would for a given item or service will find prices quite low. For one to eight dollars, you can purchase a meal at a market or restaurant. Rooms range greatly in price depending on location and quality, but rarely exceed seventy dollars or so for some of the nicest rooms in the country. Even souvenirs like spices or clothing from the markets in Bissau or Bafata will be quite cheap.Search for Deals
