Sao Tome & Principe.
Sao Tome, the “chocolate island”, was the first land in Africa at the beginning of the 19th century, where cocoa trees from Brazil were planted by Portuguese settlers.

During a trip through Ghana, Benin and Togo, we cross the savanna to the north and discover the ancient villages Taneka located in a rocky mountain and the Tamberma in their pretty clay castles before entering the Ashanti Kingdom in Kumasi. Finally, we will explore the ancient Slave Coast with its fascinating European forts.
