NATURAL TREASURES AWAIT
Cruises to Africa provide an unmissable opportunity to discover the very best of its natural treasures, from its fauna-rich jungle to its dramatic peaks.

Further out, the island is alive with tropical agriculture, with coconut palms and cacao trees covering most of the island, and there is a unique ecosystem with many species of animal indigenous to the region. São Tomé and Príncipe holidays are an invitation to explore the untouched beauty of Africa's hidden gem. São Tomé, the larger of the two islands, boasts bustling markets and a unique blend of Portuguese colonial architecture and African culture; while Príncipe, its smaller sibling, is a tranquil haven of secluded beaches and lush rainforests.
