São Tomé holidays

The island nation of São Tomé and Principe is one of Africa’s most pleasant surprises, a near tropical paradise awash with atmospheric colonial reminders, beautiful coastline and fascinating wildlife. Our São Tomé holidays offers an excellent introduction to the country, starting in the capital with its unique Portuguese-Creole flavor. From here we head into the interior, hiking to the pretty Lagoa Amelia and then driving south to São João with its gorgeous black sand beaches. Continuing to the southernmost tip we look for turtles laying eggs at night, take a trip to the tiny Rolas Island on the equator line, then travel by boat up the west coast to Mucumbli, our base for exploring Obo National Park. Staying in charming lodges and converted plantation houses we have excellent opportunities to meet local people, stop in small villages and see the best of the island’s incredible biodiversity and unusual history. A fascinating insight into an unusual corner of Africa.
