There will be plenty to see and do during this active São Tomé off the Beaten Track adventure holiday.
Your first night is spent at Omali Lodge on the outskirts of São Tomé City. From here head west towards the town of Neves where you start the west to east island traverse, which in places the going will be hard.
This rewarding 3-day jungle trek through the rain forests around the Obo national park takes you to the foot of Pico do São Tomé, the islands’ highest peak (2024m). There is an option to climb the peak (subject to weather and fitness) before descending on rough jungle trails to the east coast, where you’ll have a well-deserved rest in the beautifully restored Roca Sao Joao.
After your amazing trek, the second part of your trip is more relaxed, though there is still plenty to see and you’ll have time to visit the equator monument, mangroves and swim.

Our 'São Tomé jungle trek' allows you walk from one side of the island to the other where you'll discover the wild interior of the island. The trek can be hard underfoot and you'll find it hot and humid in the forest. The best time to travel would be May to September when it's a little cooler and drier. The accommodation in each part of the island you stay in is local in style, not luxurious yet comfortable.
This holiday to São Tomé not only allows you to experience the islands dramatic coast, but also its more wild interior. There is much to see and you definitely need a sense of adventure!
