Rainbow Tours Launches Africa & Madagascar 2014

Responsible tourism specialist Rainbow Tours has released its new Africa & Madagascar brochure for 2014, introducing the islands of Sao Tomé and Principe for the first time.

Sitting on the Equator and located 225 kilometres west of Gabon, the Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe is one of the smallest countries in Africa (only the Seychelles is smaller). Part of an extinct volcanic range, the country consists of two archipelagos, clustered around the two main islands, São Tomé and Príncipe. These little islands are hardly known and accessible only via a once-weekly flight from Lisbon, but offer a paradise of unexplored jungles, crystal clear waters, palm-fringed beaches and delicious Portuguese-Creole cuisine. They are also a haven for wildlife, and Principe is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve thanks to its rich biodiversity that includes humpback whales, dolphins and nesting turtles.

Rainbow's nine-day adventure to the islands costs from £1970 per person which includes return flights from Heathrow via Lisbon, return flights to Principe for Bom Bom Island, airport taxes, airport transfers, two nights in a classic room at Omali Lodge with dinner and breakfast and five nights in a pool room at Bom Bom Island Resort, including breakfast and dinner.

The Africa programme features favourites such as South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania alongside lesser known destinations including Sierra Leone and the Republic of Congo. New accommodation has been added in most destinations including luxury tented camps and remote safari lodges in Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Tanzania, in wildlife-rich areas including the Okavango Delta, the Serengeti and the Lower Zambezi. In Namibia there are additional camps, lodges and guesthouses in the rocky wilderness of Damaraland and on the coast at Swakopmund, while in Uganda there are added options for those wishing to see the gorillas of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. In addition, across Mozambique, Zanzibar, Mauritius and Réunion Island, there are more choices for those looking to escape to idyllic beaches.
