Sao Tome and Principe

'Léve-léve' - calm and relaxed - is the way on São Tomé and Príncipe, which lie wonderfully isolated in the Atlantic, 250km off the west coast of Africa. If you like your destinations authentic, peaceful and pristine then look no further: the islands have slipped under the radar, and are only now gaining a reputation for their untouched landscapes and wonderful wildlife: vibrant endemic birds, migrating whales, and shimmering sea-life - including marine turtles, for whom the islands provide an invaluable nesting habitat. And when you're not hiking through the forest or wildlife-spotting, you can enjoy the tasty seafood, sample bean-fresh velvety chocolate, wander the crumbling capital, and spend lazy days on idyllic beaches.
