In November 2017, after a lot of hard work, we opened our shop in Santa Maria, Sal. It was a proud day for the Explore Cape Verde team!

We wanted the shop to reflect our ethos, therefore wherever possible, we used talented local artisans to create our furniture and artwork and we couldn’t have been happier with the results.


We really wanted the shop to showcase the amazing wildlife Sal has to offer, so we created a gallery wall displaying beautiful photos taken by local residents.  These striking photos have become a real talking point for visitors to the shop!

Having a shop means we can support wildlife conservation even further!  We purchase locally made turtles, which we then sell in the shop, with 100% of the proceeds going to Project Biodiversity. To date, we have raised over €800 in this way. The turtles are available to purchase for €5. Our guests receive an authentic, beautiful, locally made souvenir from Cape Verde, whilst also supporting a great cause.

"I can’t thank these guys enough for making our holiday the best trip ever. We’ve done so much, seen so much of the island and what it had to offer. We couldn’t have done it without Jonathan and his team. I would highly recommend anyone travelling to Sal to make their office your first port of call and book as many trips as possible because you won’t be disappointed. They genuinely care about the island and its conservation"
