Garden Of Eden

Itinerary Overview

A wonderfully remote and unexplored two-island nation, Sao Tome & Principe lies close to the equator off the western coast of Central Africa.

A couple of days are spent on the big island, Sao Tome, home to extensive cocoa and coffee plantations and one of the world’s smallest capital cities, before time is enjoyed at the remarkable Bom Bom Lodge on the smaller sister island, Principe – where breath-taking sceneries of waterfalls, sandy beaches and rainforest are only trumped by the opportunity to view whales, turtles, dolphins and a kaleidoscope of bird species.

Accommodation includes: Omali Lodge Boutique Hotel and Bom Bom Island Resort
