Destination Details

Sao Tome And Principe

 

The Botanical Garden is the gateway to Obo National Park. It is located at Bom Sucesso (1.115 m. asl), which used to be part of the old Monte Cafe plantation. With over 400 species of endemic flora and over a thousand samples of plants, this Botanical garden and Herbarium were created to educate people, and the younger generations especially, on matters of biology and systematic botany. Not only that, but also to preserve endangered species off-site, to collect living specimens and data for scientific research and finally, for touristic and recreational ends. Shading sheds for certain species were created in Bom Sucesso, especially for the orchids culled in the forests of Sao Tomé and Príncipe islands. These flowers were initially picked for phonological studies and are now popular tourist attractions. At Bom Sucesso botanical garden it is possible to see more than 100 different orchids from both islands of Sao Tome and Principe.
