Discover sublime Sao Tome & Principe with us!
Enjoy these tropical isles before the masses discover them.
The tropical islands of Sao Tome & Principe are a wonderful choice for those after something refreshingly new. These luxuriant, largely forested isles off Africa's west coast, offer a myriad of walking trails; beautiful beaches (especially on Principe); accommodation of a high standard and excellent hospitality. For natural history enthusiasts, there is a selection of rare birds, small wildlife and in season, whale and turtle-watching. This sample itinerary - which can be tailored to meet specific requirements and special interests - includes stays in Omali Lodge on Sao Tome and then on Roca Sundy and Bom Bom Island Resort on Principe.
I created this trip - call me to create yours.
Day 1: Fly to Sao Tome
Take an early morning TAP flight from London to Lisbon, where you remain air side and connect with the flight to Sao Tome, arriving late afternoon. You will be met and transferred to comfortable Omali Lodge to stay two nights in a standard double room with breakfast. (Ask us about upgrading to a junior suite).
Day 2: Sao Tome
After a leisurely breakfast, you'll be able to partake in a variety of excursions (locally payable) for those who wish to see something of Sao Tome island. Keen hikers can visit one of its trails into dense, equatorial rainforest. Birders would want to do the same, in search of some of Africa's rarest species. You might also want to visit the town, to get to know something of the country's history and its people.

Transfer to Sao Tome airport for the quick flight to Principe, where you'll be met and taken to the lovely refurbished, colonial plantation house Roca Sundy for a 3-night stay with dinner and breakfast included.
Days 4 - 5: Exploring Principe
With Roca Sundy as your base, spend these two days exploring the luxuriant and mostly forest-clad island of Principe. During your time here, you can walk some of the Biosphere Trails; visit resident communities to get to know the people; go birdwatching and in season, looking for marine wildlife such as humpback whales or marine turtles.
Day 6: To Bom Bom for some R&R time!
Transfer to lovely Bom Bom Island Resort for a 4-night stay in a Pool View Villa with dinner and breakfast included.
