Getting around São Tomé e Príncipe
There is no national airline but the islands can be reached with TAP Portugal (website: www.flytap.com). Panoramic and charter flights are also available.
There are over 380km (236 miles) of roads, although in general these are deteriorating.
Some of them are asphalted around São Tomé town, but 4-wheel drive vehicles are necessary to get further afield: animals on the road and potholes may cause problems.
There is street lighting only in the capital.
Bus/taxi: There is a bus network and yellow share taxis are also in operation. The only public transport on Príncipe is a minibus.
Documentation: An International Driving Permit is not legally required but is recommended.
