Namibia and São Tomé & Príncipe for soulful safari

posted 9th October 2019 by Danica Wilson in Featured itineraries

Namibia and São Tomé and Príncipe

A journey of contrasts

Experience the contrasts of Namibia and São Tomé & Príncipe in an 11-night journey between Wolwedans Premier Camps and Sundy Praia.
Start in Windhoek and end in São Tomé.

If you are searching for a really different experience in Africa, you really need to take a look at this soulful Namibia safari. It combines the magic of Namibia’s desert and the lush secrets of Principe’s island paradise.

Earth and wind
We start the adventure arriving into Windhoek and transferring you by light aircraft down to the wonderful Wolwedans. Red sand dunes and yellow grass plains in an undulating landscape of one breathtaking moment after another, this is Wolwedans at its best – an endless sea of sand shaped over countless years.  Think space, balance, connection… It’s certainly soulful.

We then transfer you back up to Windhoek and fly you on the afternoon TAAG flight (Angola Airlines) from Windhoek to Sao Tome (with a stop-over in Luanda). You will overnight at Omali Lodge and take the morning 35 minutes flight to Príncipe Island.

Fire and water
Formed by a volcano, the island of Príncipe is covered in lush green forest, bordered by golden sand – a spec in a vast ocean off the west coast of Africa. At Sundy Praia, breathe in the potency of this diverse place… It’s idyllic and intoxicating.
