This trip won’t be for everyone.
However, if you are looking for a safe African family adventure holiday where you can walk in the jungle one day, swim with tropical fish the next and feel like real explorers, then perhaps the islands of São Tomé and Príncipe are for you.
This is an amazing trip for the whole family, with coffee tasting for the adults and chocolate tasting for everyone!
There are water sports activities at Club Santana and Rolas island, and the chance to jump over the equator mark from the southern to northern hemispheres.
Sit back and relax in a dugout canoe and let yourself be paddled by a guide throughSão Tomé’s largest mangrove forest, before flying to Príncipe, where your amazing approach is like a scene from Jurassic Park.
Then spend your last few days of your family adventure holiday exploring the colourful underwater world of tropical fish from the Bom Bom Island Lodge’s private beaches.
