It is one of the countries that has suffered the most from the plundering by the Portuguese. As if that were not enough, it also suffered a hard Civil War that lasted until the end of the 20th century.

It is true that this country is not one of the cheapest of the five or even the easiest to travel to. It is, however, one of the countries that has suffered the most from the influence of the West. It is worth visiting at least once in a lifetime for its spectacular beauty, its great diversity and its history. Recent, but truly powerful.
And what are these basic guidelines to keep in mind in Africa? In terms of health, for example, vaccination against diseases such as Yellow Fever, Malaria or Hepatitis A. Although you should also take into account hygiene measures such as always drinking properly bottled water without ice (or bottled water with gas, a good trick to ensure that the water is treated), use mosquito repellents, avoid risky sexual behavior, use sunscreen and carry medicines and antiseptics in case you suffer any injury. Of course, you should also take out a good travel insurance policy.
