Príncipe - can you locate me on a map?
25 February 2019

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. Originally formed by a volcano, the island’s geology has been eroded over millions of years, leaving spires of rock bedecked with lush rainforest. Today this is one of the most exciting new adventures to await travellers to Africa.

And because most people struggle to locate this little wonderland on a world map, we have created the perfect itinerary:

PACKAGE DETAILS

A TINY PARADISE OF NATURAL WONDERS

Head out on a guided walk of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve that makes up this paradise, or take a stroll from Sundy Praia and discover the forests for yourself. Walking the numerous wilderness trails is a real adventure.

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

What is life without connectivity, meet the soul and passion of Principe during an island tour. Uninhabited until the 1500s, the island today is home to about 7 000 people, descendants of slaves who worked the cocoa and sugar plantations for the colonial Portuguese.

Seychelles

1500km east of mainland East Africa lies an archipelago of 115 islands collectively known as Seychelles. The outer islands, with a land area of 220 km2 make up almost half of the land area of Seychelles and 2% of its population. These outer islands comprise 9 important bird areas, the largest population of giant tortoises, nesting grounds for turtles, over 180 bird species, 320 species of coral, over 1000 fish species, spinner dolphins, humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, pilot whales, melon-headed whales and even the elusive dugong.

Within the outer islands is the Alphonse Group, the coral islands of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier, about 1 hour's flight and 250km from Mahé. Just over 1000 km southwest of Mahé you find the Aldabra Group, including Cosmoledo and Astove Atolls. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. There may be coral islands or cays on the rim. The coral of the atoll often sits atop the rim of an extinct seamount or volcano which has eroded or subsided partially beneath the water. The lagoon forms over the volcanic crater or caldera while the higher rim remains above water or at shallow depths that permit the coral to grow and form the reefs.

It is amidst this vast oceanic playground that you will find Blue Safari Seychelles.
