Birding Tour São Tomé and Príncipe: 10-day Birding Adventure 2019
Duration: 10 days
The scenically spectacular, equatorial islands of São Tomé and Príncipe boast 25 endemic birds! Needless to say, therefore, they are a “must” for any serious world birder. We aim for all 25 of these endemics during our comprehensive tour (but of course might not get them all). We are forced to spend some nights camping (which we try and make as easy as possible for you) during our tour. The rainforest-clad volcanic slopes of these islands make for amazing birding, including a host of other species apart from the endemics, which are the main focus for us. While our focus is very much on birds we’re likely to encounter a great diversity of other wildlife as a byproduct of the birding.
São Tomé is the larger island and has a population of just under 200,000 people, whereas Príncipe is smaller with only 5000 people. You will enjoy the friendly atmosphere and idyllic setting – a combo of stunning beaches and well-forested mountains.
