INTRODUCTION TO GUINEA BISSAU

Guinea-Bissau, officially the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, is a sovereign state in West Africa. Guinea-Bissau is bordered by Senegal to the north and Guinea to the south and east, with the Atlantic Ocean to its west.

 

Guinea Bissau is a small yet vibrant African nation just beginning to take its place on the tourist map. A small but beautiful country with interesting wildlife and vibrant traditions that rival any of its larger neighbors. Go Volunteer Africa is the only organization offering volunteer and travel trips in Guinea Bissau.

 

The official language of Guinea-Bissau is Portuguese. Portuguese is spoken by 11% of the population. French is also learned in schools, as Guinea-Bissau is surrounded by French-speaking countries and is a full member of the Francophonie as well as the CPLP.

TOURISM IN GUINEA BISSAU

Guinea-Bissau is a tropical country on West Africa’s Atlantic coast that’s known for national parks and wildlife. The forested, sparsely populated Bijagós archipelago is a protected biosphere reserve. Its main island, Bubaque, forms part of the Orango Islands National Park, a habitat for saltwater hippos. On the mainland, the capital, Bissau, is a port with Portuguese colonial buildings in its old city center.

Guinea Bissau's tourism industry is among the less developed in the world though the country is well endowed.
