Explore More About Principe:

The duo of far-flung islands that is Sao Tome and Principe is hardly Africa’s best-known tourist destination. Nor is the tiny country the most glaringly of African places. For starters, the whole spot is Portuguese-speaking (save for a couple of pockets of earthy Creole). And then there’s the colonial feel of the towns and villages, which ooze the character of the New World more than that of sub-Sahara.

However, there’s still a vibrant approach to life that’s undeniably African, not to mention a kitchen of spiced fish cuts and banana pap porridge that straddles the culinary traditions of both east and west.

Obo National Park

Covering a vast area of more than 230 square kilometers on the southern side of Sao Tome, the great wilderness ranges from salt-washed mangroves on the shore to virgin Atlantic rainforests in the highlands. And what highlands they are! Crowned by the mighty, needle-like bluff of Pico Cao Grande, the park soars straight into the clouds. And along the coast, the mountains take the form of great square-cut escarpments; lofty and proud above the waves of the Atlantic Ocean below.

Safaris and treks here will reveal beautiful tropical backcountry, along with grey parrots, mona monkeys and oodles of uber-rare birds!

Santo António

The capital of tiny little Principe – the smaller half of this archipelago – is a pint-sized town on the north shore of the island, and home to the bulk of its population (and that’s just above only 1,000 individuals!). A sleepy place of age-stained colonial edifices and mud-splattered pueblo-style homes, it’s got a certain authentic charm. The winding channels of the Palhota River cut through the heart of the town, bisecting the seaside streets as they weave along the shore through palm groves and swamp flats.

Jale Beach

For folk who flock to Sao Tome to see the rare phenomenon of turtles clambering over the beaches and laying their eggs, there’s perhaps no better destination than the arc of golden sand that is Jale Beach. Curving its way around the bends of the southern coast, this bay is known as one of the top places to spot endangered sea turtles during the mating season.

It’s also popular with local swimmers, and there’s a clutch of rustic beach huts made out of bamboo and palm boughs – if you don’t mind bedding down to a backing track of crashing Atlantic waves, with no electricity and mod cons, that is!
