Serra Malagueta, Santiago, Cape Verde

As we have mentioned before, our  holiday team regularly check whether the holidays on offer are accurate and appropriate. In November 2022, we reported on a walking trip on the island of Fogo. The second part of that trip was walking on the island of Santiago.

These trips mean that from time to time the team can check out the accommodation and activities that are on offer. This makes sure that what is offered to guests is of the right quality and up to date. It also provides the opportunity to discover new places to stay and new things to do. This means that when you book your holiday with our team you can be sure that what is arranged for you has been checked and tested.

So, here we continue on from Born of Fire, the article on the island of Fogo, to walking in the Serra Malagueta on the island of Santiago. Santiago is the largest of the Cape Verde islands and is where you find the capital city of Praia.

The Serra Malagueta is the mountain range north of Praia. The drive through this area is lovely. Twisty mountain roads and at the end of the journey is the lovely town of Tarrafal. However, here we concentrate on the mountains. There ‘re various places to stay, both in the Serra Malagueta and in Tarrafal.

So if you like a walking holiday, maybe Santiago is for you. The article below will hopefully encourage you to try this island.
