Overview

There are some places in the world you just have to visit, and the tropical island of Príncipe has to be one of them.

During this 7 night holiday, you’ll experience one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, Praia Sundy.

Short but perfectly formed, this holiday has been carefully crafted to maximise the time you have to explore and relax.  You’ll divide your time between the main island of São Tomé, staying at Omali Lodge, and the smaller island of Príncipe, staying at Praia Sundy.

You’ll connect to the island’s colonial history on a guided tour of the small and charismatic capital, São Tomé city, before taking the short 35 minute flight across the ocean to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Príncipe.  You’ll then spend 4 nights at Praia Sundy where you’ll be treated to a tension releasing massage, and enjoy a gentle 3-4 hour guided walk through the rain forest to Ribeira Izé, Príncipe’s first capital.   You’ll have plenty of time to use the lodge’s snorkels and stand up paddle boards and explore the warm tropical ocean too.
