Cape Verde is a small island state in West Africa and lies more than 500 kilometres off the coast of Senegal. Historically, it was the first European settlement founded in the tropics in the second half of the 15th century. This mixed race nation forms a sublime archipelago of 10 volcanic islands swept by the trade winds and bathed in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The mix of cultures, the rich musical heritage, the diversity of landscapes, the vast expanses of beaches, the dry tropical climate and the hospitality of its inhabitants make Cape Verde a unique destination on the African continent.

Major places to visit in Cape Verde: Cidade Velha (Historic Centre of Ribeira Grande), Mindelo Carnival, Santo Antão, Pico do Fogo, islands of Sal and Boa Vista...
