Ana is a very nice person and a great guide, the trip was well prepared and interesting for adults, teen and a 4-year-old. We had a chance to be the only family on that visit and enjoyed it very much. Lunch was good, local and not expensive. All tickets were included. Take water, suitcases and towels with you. The video Anna did is great! Visit lasts from 08:30 till 15:30. Thanks for this great day!

If you want an Unforgettable experience then I urge you to book your excursions with zug! My partner and I had a wonderful 2 weeks in Sal and Zug was the highlight of our trip. Her love for the island, nature, people and culture and the way she connects with her group is special. You really won't regret booking your trip with. She will look after you and make sure you're having the best time whether you're snorkeling or watching Turtles lay eggs she looks after the Wild Life around her and respects nature.

She also provides a video and takes pictures for you and your group all included in the price.

I love Zug. If I come back I will definitely be booking with Zug again.

Peace and love xx xx

Unique

Peace and love.

Ana runs her very own tour company and we couldn’t have picked a better guide for seeing the lemon sharks and visiting Salinas. As a graduated marine biologist she knows all about the island and it’s bio diversity and loves to share her knowledge in a very enthusiastic way. Highly recommend ZugAdventures of you are in Sal!

After we did incredible Turtle watching last week, We knew we wanted to do more with Zugadventures and went on a full day tour with Ana. She is the owner of this organization, a super sweet and kind girl with a heart of gold! We had an amazing day seeing the Lemon sharks, floating in the salt mines, doing an Cultural Tour, went for a walk through Palmeira and did lunch there. Everything was so well arranged. Big compliment to Ana for making this day one of the best we’ve had during our holiday! We’ll keep in touch

We took all the activities Ana as to offer, we started with the turtles at night (we saw 10 females and 5 babies. And then we did the full day (sharks, salt pans, Buracona, Lunch and snorkling).
She is a very kind person with a lot of knowledgement related to the biodiversity and history.
We recommend the activities for everyone!
Thanks for everything Ana "Zuga" Besugo

We made contact with Ana of ZUGAdventures before arriving in Sal having decided that of all the tour operators on Tripadvisor as we thought her enthusiasm and knowledge of turtles would be second to none and we weren’t disappointed.

Ana took us on a turtle watch and we soon found a mother starting to build her nest. We sat and watched this wonderful experience of nature as she laid her eggs, covered her nest then returned to the sea.

We also went on two other excursions with ZUGA to shark bay and snorkelling plus the Cultural Tour/Salinas salt flats on separate days both of which were great.

ZUGA only do small tours so you are never crowded out or having to wait on loads of others as we witnessed with other tour groups.

Ana herself is wonderful, friendly and funny. She provides plenty of information and as a marine biologist has excellent knowledge of turtles and the sea life you see when snorkelling.

We can not recommend ZUGAdventures highly enough and wish their were more trips to do on Sal.

Initially myself and my girlfriend booked the Lemon Shark and Snorkeling tour. We were so impressed we decided to book the Turtle tour a few nights later. Anna is a qualified Marine biologist and there is no question she can’t answer. The night we went out with Anna, we were lucky to see several females laying their eggs.

I would urge anyone who is considering booking a tour on the island of Sal to use Zug Adventures. It is ran by an extremely professional person who is respectful and knowledgeable of the Cape Verdian ecosystem. Many of the other tour operators on the island are ran by people who have no knowledge and no respect for nature.

Dear Hotel C,

it is with great satisfaction that we received your positive feedback after the completion of our main activity, the observation of sea turtles during the spawning season. It was a unique and memorable night that not only do you keep it forever, but also the ZUGAdventures team. We hope to see you in the near future.

Best regards,

ZUGAdventures team
