Highlights of Sea Turtle conservation

The research you will participate in is located on Sao Tome Island, off the coast of Gabon. Staying at the luxurious Bom Bom Island Resort with 2 private beaches, a great spot for relaxing and recharging your batteries and the ideal place to observe sea turtles in their natural habitat.

The 21 bungalows each have their own veranda with wonderful views across the green palm fronds and bay. Each has an en suite bathroom, air conditioning, flat screen TV with satellite connection, telephone, safe, tea/coffee/ mini bar fridge and fans.

The restaurant, bar and marina are on a tiny islet which is reached by crossing a 230 meter wooden walkway. There’s a dive centre, swimming pool and pool bar with a souvenir shop.

Best time to go to Sao Tome

  • December to March – leatherback, loggerhead and green turtles nesting in the Praia Grande. The focus will be observing these amazing animals as they migrate long distances to their favourite feeding grounds and hatching beaches. The females are one of the most endangered marine species under observation today.
  • July to September –  humpback whales visit the surrounding waters

Principe Island is an ideal place to explore after your research holiday – why not spend a couple of nights before flying back to Portugal and on home after your eco adventure?
