Sao Tome and Principe (Bradt Travel Guide)
by Kathleen Becker
This is the first stand-alone guide to 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.
