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.
Side of road:Right
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.
