Come to Cape Verde with us!


Cape Verde is a country in West Africa comprised of a group of islands of the Atlantic Ocean, west of Senegal. Sao Vicente is where you will find Cape Verde’s prettiest city, the beautiful Mediterranean town of Mindelo. Mindelo is Cape Verde’s answer to the Riviera, complete with cobblestone streets lined with candy-colored colonial buildings. With a crescent shape harbor, there are yachts bobbing peacefully with the backdrop of barren mountains seen beyond the city of Mindelo. It is easy to take a break from the city, by taking a day’s hike to Mt. Verde (750m), the islands highest peak.

You can directly help the dogs and cats of Sao Vicente by staying with us at SI MA BO’s backpackers hostel, the cost of your stay will directly go to help the animals here on the island. Our hostel is situated in the heart of Mindelo, the capital of Sao Vicente. What a better way to spend your holidays or vacation directly helping animals by staying with us.
