After Gambia, which quickly flashed across the Russian tourist horizon, another African novelty - Cape Verde - has appeared.
From early July there are offers of package tours with beach vacations in the Republic of Cape Verde in the line of package offers of ICS Travel Group tour operator. Tour packages are based on regular transportation of Tap Portugal flights from Moscow with connections in Lisbon.
The tour operator offers accommodation on the island of Sal with arrivals daily from Monday to Friday, and on the island of Boavista with arrivals every Saturday. Tours are with a fixed length of 7 and 14 nights. The dates of arrivals are from 02.07.2019 until 30.01.2020.
The prices for tour packages to Cape Verde islands from ICS Travel Group start from 87,784 Rubles (1,227 Euros) per person in a double room for 7 nights, including flight, transfer and medical insurance. Prices can be found in the tour operator booking system.
In 2019 there is an opportunity for the Russians to get a visa upon arrival (the cost is 25 Euros). The Schengen visa is not needed if you not go beyond the transit zone of Lisbon airport.
The number of tourists from Russia is a few dozen per year. This destination is very little known in Russia.
