In Principe there are not many cars and it is impossible to apply a precise price for transport as they vary continuously. One of our staff can help you find the car that suits you, also negotiating the price for you. Given the characteristics of the island's roads and the lack of signs, jeep rental with driver is recommended.
Our staff will provide you all the information about excursions in the forest and to the Pico Papagaio, trips with small local boats for whale and dolphin watching and you can also have the experience of fishing barracuda or sailfish, tour of the island by car, trips to the most beautiful beaches. Since these services are not directly handled by us, we advise you to be very careful and we decline any responsibility for what may occur during the hiking or driving. Sometimes the locals can take advantage of the tourists. You can find low price cars rent, take attention because you may have unpleasant situations. The roads are actually bad, the rain often makes them even harder to drive and we recommend you always to use only a jeep (possibly with a good driver).
Ask our crew about the Government schedule and rate about excursions.

Some time the crew can request you the permission to enter into the house and check the safety status of the gas cylinder or water heater for safety reasons.
Energy and water - As we are in Africa, it may happen to be without electricity or water. We have chosen not to use the diesel generator because we want to implement alternative forms of energy as soon as we can carry them into the island.
