This cozy island is a fresh breath of air when you have been slugging it out in West African cities. We spent four days and loved our experience on the island. Looking forward to returning.

Take a respite from the hot steamy climate of equatorial Sao Tome and hire a local cab to take you up to the cool hills. For a reasonable price (negotiate) you can get an air-conditioned car or van to drive you over often-rutted roads through...More

We can highly recommend the French-owned agency, Mistral, who organised a good day's trip to see the Monte Café and Bombain plantations. Ideally we would have liked to have visited Agostinho Neto cacau plantation as well on the same tour, but this isn't on offer....More
