Bafatá ('the place where the rivers meet' in the Mandinga language), feels surprisingly hot and dry. Independence hero Amílcar Cabral was born here in 1924 and Unesco has transformed his childhood home into a museum that's open daily (ask for the 'casa rosa Amílcar Cabral' ).

You can sleep at the basic but clean Hotel Maimuna Capé or try the yellow Apartamento Imel in the centre of town. Ponto de Encontro, at the end of the main street, is run by a charming older Portuguese couple. Head there for hearty fare and a glimpse into Bafatá's past.

Transporte misto to Bissau (CFA1750, two hours) and Gabú (CFA800) departs from the petrol station area.

Gabú, once the capital of the eponymous 19th-century kingdom is mainly a stopover on the way to Guinea. or a base for excursions to the rocky lands of Boé (40km from Gabú). The best hotel in town is the Boca-Branco. There's also the central Residencial Djaraama, or the simple Hotel Baga Baga, near the entrance to town.
