Overview

This is the first stand-alone guide to Africa’s second-smallest country (around 1,000km²), São Tomé & Príncipe, renowned for its enticing blend of African, Portuguese and Caribbean culture.Largely unexplored and unexploited by tourism, these tropical volcanic islands off the west African coast are the antithesis of mass-market destinations – and one of the most unspoilt places on earth. The author guides pioneering travellers round this African island paradise, 75% of which is covered by rainforest, and its unspoilt palm-fringed beaches, towering volcanic peaks, and fascinating colonial heritage. She also provides in-depth coverage of Sâo Tomean culture and history as well as contemporary political issues.
