Sao Tome with Kathleen Becker

This trip will be led by Kathleen Becker, author of the Bradt Travel Guide for Sao Tome and Principe. Kathleen will take us into the heart of the country to provide a unique insight into this small and enchanting destination. Described in the Bradt Travel Guide as a 'largely undiscovered, uniquely rewarding and safe destination with an exciting blend of African, Portuguese and Caribbean cultures', our discovery of this island will include visiting secluded beaches, swimming in its pristine waters and hiking in its rainforest while on the lookout for an abundant array of wildlife, specifically birds and plants. A boat trip along the wild west coast of the island will lead to hidden waterfalls and rock formations while there are opportunities to visit colonial plantation houses and sample some of the best coffee and chocolate in the world. Combine this with gaining an insight into its turbulent history and the only thing left to do will be to get into the laid-back Santomean way of life and enjoy this paradise island

Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip in Sao Tome

The trip starts in the town of Sao Tome, upon arrival we will be transferred to our hotel in the centre of town, our base for the next two nights.

Accommodation: Residencial Avenida(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Meals Provided: None
Day 2 - Explore the colonial heritage and sights of Sao Tome town

Today we explore the sights and sounds of the town of Sao Tome. Originally established in 1493, the town gained prominence off the back of sugarcane and the transatlantic slave trade; it was over the next 50 years that work started on the cathedral and the Fort of Saint Sebastian, our first sights we will see on the island. The fort houses the National Museum, detailing the history of Sao Tome and the legacy of the slave trade. Cocoa and coffee predominately feature too, a reminder of the key part both have played in the story of this beautiful island. We will walk along the seafront to independence square, enjoying the hustle and bustle of the town, filled with street vendors selling jackfruit, local shops pumping out bass-heavy local music and motorbikes buzzing around. The afternoon is free for you to wander the Mercado, take in the colourful buildings of Sao Tome, visit Claudio Corrilllo chocolate factory (reputedly home to the best chocolate in the world) or find a café, try some of the famous local coffee and watch the world go by.

Accommodation: Residencial Avenida(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Meals Provided: Breakfast and Lunch
Day 3 - Visit botanical gardens and walk to crater lake

Today we head back into the interior of the island and drive up to the botanical gardens of Bom Sucesso. The garden is home to over 400 local plants and 140 orchids and we will have a guided tour to learn about the traditional healing that the plants were used for due to their medicinal qualities. From Bom Sucesso we make our way to the ancient overgrown crater lake of Lagoa Amelia, the walk takes us through agricultural land to the primary forest of the Obo National Park. As we are walking our guide will hopefully spot some of the local birds, including the maroon pigeon, Sao Tome scops owl, giant sunbird and the Sao Tome oriole. From here we make our way to the Monte Café plantation, previously the largest producer of coffee on the island, here we will try some of the earthy beans and visit the coffee museum. Santomeans are very laid back but do enjoy letting their hair down and having a party and this is our last evening in Sao Tome town to try and locate a good dancehall before moving to the south of the island. Depending upon weather conditions etc, we may reverse the order of days 3 and 4.

Accommodation: Hotel Miramar(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Swimming pool available
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast and Lunch
Day 4 - Rainforest walk around Bombaim plantation to waterfalls

This morning we head out of town and into the heart of the island as we arrive at Bombaim plantation, known locally as Bombaim Roca. The old cocoa Plantation house had gradually retreated into the jungle after being abandoned years ago, but in recent years has been partially restored. We take a look around the ruins and gardens before starting our walk through the forest on our way to the waterfalls known as Cascata Formosa (around two hours each way). We expect to see many of the endemic birds of Sao Tome on this walk and will also enjoy the local speciality of mangosteen - a citrusy tasting fruit originally from Asia and the only place it can be found in Sao Tome is in Bombaim. We will also stop for lunch in the jungle and have a swim in the waterfall for those needing to cool off. Our hotel for tonight is set on the outskirts of Sao Tome town, just a short walk from the beach and with a pool for those wanting time to relax.

Accommodation: Hotel Miramar(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Swimming pool available
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast and Lunch
Day 5 - Journey down the east coast stopping at fishing villages and beaches

As we say goodbye to the capital we take the ocean road, heading south towards the famous beaches at the bottom of the island. We drive through small fishing villages and past beautiful beaches until we stop at the Roca Agua Ize, a beautiful old plantation where cocoa production first started. Not far down the road is the natural blowhole of Boca do Inferno, one of the most famous attractions on the island. The next stop is Sao Joao Angolares, known for being the centre of the Angolares community - a fishing people said to be descendants of runaway slaves. We will have lunch at the Roca de Sao Joao which, according to our very own Kathleen Becker, serves some of the best food in Sao Tome. After lunch we have a tour of the working plantation before continuing down to Praia Inhame, our coastal home for the next two nights.

Accommodation: Praia Inhame(or similar)

Standard Cabins
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast and Lunch
Day 6 - Dugout canoe ride through mangroves, swim in pristine waters

This morning we board a local fishing boat and are peacefully steered through red and white mangroves from the town of Malanza. The mangroves are a great place to spot birds including the moorhen, malachite kingfisher and the reed cormorant; we will be out on the canoe for around 2 hours before a traditional lunch in Porto Alegre. Being right on the beach this will normally be freshly caught fish, but other options are available on request. In the afternoon we explore Praia Piscina, an idyllic place for swimming and one of the best beaches on the island, we will also stop at Praia Jale, a turtle beach (as are many of the beaches in the area) and known for its bar - a great place to stop for a refreshing Nacional or Criollo, two of the beers brewed on the island.

Accommodation: Praia Inhame(or similar)

Standard Cabins
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast and Lunch
Day 7 - Stand on the equator, boat trip up the rugged west coast

We have an early start today to board our boat to the isle of Rolas and to boldly stride between two hemispheres as we reach the equator! We will have time for a quick swim before starting our boat journey up the west coast of Sao Tome. On the lookout for endemic birds and marine life, we hug the coast as we slowly cruise past forest, beaches and small villages on our way to the beaches and blue lagoon in the north of the island. The blue lagoon or "Lagoa Azul" surrounded by baobab trees and fossilised corals is a fantastic place for snorkelling and we will have some time to snorkel and swim here before a short drive to Mucumbli, our home for the next 3 nights.

Accommodation: Mucumbi(or similar)

Standard Cabins
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast and Lunch
Day 8 - Free time on the beach

After a fairly busy week, today is the day to relax and take at your leisure. We have no organised activities, but our chalets are located above a beach for a spot of swimming, and the panoramic terrace overlooking the sea is perfect for lounging and catching up with a book. For those that want to explore the local area, bikes are available to rent from our accommodation. An interesting place to ride to is Santa Catarina, a local fishing village where it is often possible to see a canoe being made by hand. There are some fantastic walks and hikes to be found in the area and our accommodation can provide maps and guidance. The food served at our accommodation is the perfect combination of local produce and innovative Italian flair.

Accommodation: Mucumbi(or similar)

Standard Cabins

Day 9 - Morning walk through forested valley to Roca Ponta Figo

Roca Ponta Figo was a nursery that provided plants to plantations all over the island, this morning we walk the short distance to the Roça and explore its atmospheric colonial buildings. From here, our hike takes us through São Tomé's deepest valley, exploring some of the old tunnels found in the area, now mainly home to bats. We will come across another waterfall and keeps our eyes peeled for birds and endemic plant life. Our lunch stop today will be at historic Roça Monteforte, right next to the local CECAB organic cocoa cooperative, an initiative that is helping farmers to gain a fair living and access new markets. The late afternoon is free to make the most of our last moments by the sea followed by our final dinner to reminisce the highlights of the trip.
