West Africa travel guide

West Africa - Guinea-Bissau (Chapter)

8th Edition Sep 2013

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

Bare silver trees spring up like antler horns between swathes of elephant grass, and cashew sellers tease each other with an unmistakably Latin spirit. In the Bijagós hippos lumber through lagoons full of fish and you can spot turtles nesting.

  • 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 Greekstyle pillars, on the island of Bolama
  • restaurants & accommodation
