Africa travel guide

Africa - Guinea-Bissau (Chapter)

13th Edition Nov 2013

This is the Guinea-Bissau chapter from Lonely Planet’s Africa guidebook.

Guinea-Bissau will pull a smile from even the most world-weary traveller. The buildings are battered and the colonial houses faded, but you’ll see beauty alongside the decay. Bare silver trees spring up between swathes of elephant grass, and cashew sellers joke with an unmistakably Latin spirit.

  • dance tango in cobbled streets by candlelight, after a dinner of bacalau (salted flakes of cod) and red wine at Bissau Velho
  • maps
  • lock eyes with hippos as they emerge from the warm saltwater lagoons of Ilha de Orango
  • transport
  • sit on the steps of the abandoned town hall, with its crumbling Greek-style pillars, on the island of Bolama
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Bissau, Arquipélago dos Bijagós, Ilha de Bolama, Ilha de Bubaque, Orango Islands National Park, Other Islands, The Northwest, Quinhámel, Varela, The Northeast, Bafatá & Gabú, The South, Buba, and Jemberem & Parque Natural de Cantanhez.
