DISCOVER PRÍNCIPE

Located 300 kilometres off the coast of Gabon, and just 16 kilometres long and 8 kilometres wide, Príncipe is a tiny paradise of natural wonders.

Today this is one of the most exciting new adventures to await travellers to Africa.

OCEAN MEETS FOREST

Slip into the warm ocean waters and feel the sand drop away. Here the tidal differences are small which makes for some of the best beach swimming in Africa. Warm, crystal clear waters with a sand base.

PEOPLE & HISTORY

São Tomé and Príncipe

Príncipe is an adventure. A tiny island topped by a canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, join us to discover this magnificent lost world, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkelling, fishing and birdwatching.

As the smaller, northern major island of the country of São Tomé and Príncipe lying off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, Príncipe has an area of 136 square kilometres (53 sq mi) and a population of approximately 7,000. The island is a heavily eroded volcano speculated to be over three million years old. Here you will discover a place that time forgot and where you feel you have stepped off the edge of the world. It is distinctively West African with a very strong Portuguese influence and this gives it a rhythm of its own which sets it apart from any experiences in East and Southern African.
