Hey there. My name is Bucari Balde and I live in Sal, Cape Verde. I am originally from Guinea-Bissau, but immigrated to Cape Verde over 10 years ago. I planned to study Informatics in the capital town, but since that didn't work out I was moving from job to job, working in construction, hotel security and lots of other places. Two years after I arrived I started to work on a conservation project that changed my life.
More than 4 years I solely worked for SOS Tartarugas, a project that was commited to protect marine wildlife in Sal. I worked as a Ranger mainly protecting the Nesting Turtles from being poached. This was a very special time for me. I got deeply involved with these amazing animals and my whole mentality changed. I evolved a feeling of environmental care and awareness and simply fell in love with Mother Nature and all the amazing parts of it.
In 2016 I finally made the step to create my own company. Next to the informal and indivudual interchange between our guests, we are putting a high focus on the protection and conservation of the island ecosystem and the wildlife, also trying to support the local communities and businesses as much we can.
