We took an all day tour from Mindelo in connection with a cruise. You will see some beautiful country, but this is a somewhat primitive tour, and we were not prepared for that. First you will tour the downtown area, which is quite depressing. Next you will visit the 1st of 2 beaches, but we wore shorts and the wind... More

This is really the only way to see this island - get a guide and let them show you. The island is spectacular once you leave Mindelo, but the roads are non existent. If you really want to see the land, you need a four wheel drive vehicle, nerves of steel to drive some of the twisting narrow paths to... More

I have a friend who works got the Safari Company and enjoyed the experience thoroughly! I would suggest it to any first time visitors to Cabo Verde. You get to see a lot of the island that is less populated and focuses more on that natural habitat instead. This is my fourth year in arow traveling to CV from California... More

We took 2days trip to the Island of Sant Antaon with Joan,a tour operator of Cabo Verde Safari. After we took one hour ferry ride from Mindelo, St. Vicente to Sant Antaon, we climbed up to 1,500m high by car,and walked at some part,along a paved old road looking down the bleath taking valley. The scenery was so wild and... More

My wife and I went on a full day tour of Säo Vicente at the beginning of March 2012. It was an excellent tour. Through our travel agency we managed to have João Coelho as our tour guide even if his Cabo Verde Safari is currently closed during reconstruction of the company. João is a very good guide - and...

Not sure how the safari is but the excursions I did on Sal and Santo Antao were great. Traveling to the islands of cape verde is a fantastic voyage. Cape Verde is pratically untouched my tourism which makes it all the more attractive. The lands are rugged and beautifully breath-taking. My stay at the hotels and resorts were great. I... More

We have just been in the Island of Sao Vicente - Mindelo and decided to do the Safari Tour. We were 7, since we have 5 kids from 9 to 19. I really recommend the tour for those who want to have a different and more local view of the Island. Joao (the guide) is great and makes the difference.... More

If we would not have been recommended to take this opportunity we might have left this great option to experience the island with a 4-wheel drive aside. For sure we would have regret it. Some years ago Joao, a Portuguese in his mid-forties, moved permanently to Sao Vicente and runs a very nice service for touring the island of Sao... More
