The best cocoa in the world comes from here - Sao Tome and Principe

The sounds of their names alone conjure up thoughts of pristine beaches, spices and the tales of a thousand and one nights. The five-part documentary series Over the Islands of Africa follows five internationally renowned photographers as they explore the islands around Africa – Zanzibar, Mauritius, Madagascar, São Tomé & Príncipe and Cape Verde.

The photographers stop at nothing in pursuit of spectacular perspectives for their aerial photographs, stories and portraits, making use of unusual means of transport, from a motorised parachute to a flying rubber boat that can land on land as well as water.

Together with photographer Rui Camilo we travel to the West African island state of São Tomé and Príncipe in search of pictures that capture the soul of the tiny country: a bird's-eye view of fascinating landscapes and unprecedented insights into the life of the people who inhabit this tropical paradise that could have been created by Hollywood set designers. Rui's project is the fulfilment of a dream from his childhood in Lisbon, where his teachers told captivating tales about the Portuguese colony's cocoa plantations.

São Tomé was once the world's leading producer of cocoa. Today, the Italian Claudio Corallo is picking up the thread: he experiments with all-but-forgotten cocoa plant varieties in pursuit of his abiding passion to produce the best chocolate in the world. Rui, a confessed chocoholic, finds time during his photo shoots at the plantations and factories to sample the flavours of the exquisite natural products.

All around the islands, overgrown ruins bear witness to their colonial past. Today the islands are inhabited by the descendents of slaves. Rui approaches the people with the Portuguese of his youth, an accent-free children's language. He quickly breaks the ice with the locals, especially the young people. In a workshop he shows ten boys and girls how to make photos of their world themselves. At the end the course, they plan to exhibit the results of their project at the local market hall.

On his free days between photo lessons, Rui explores the two fascinating tropical islands – on foot, by Jeep and with a propeller plane. He encounters deserted palm-lined beaches, an almost untouched lush primeval forest and hatching sea turtles. What excites Rui most of all, however, are the people before his camera: They don't try to make an impression. They stand there so naturally and with such elegance – it's something I've hardly ever seen in Europe.

With Rui Camilo and his camera we plunge deep into the soul of the friendly Santomeans and discover the secrets of two all but unknown tropical paradises. Director Christian Schidlowski and his team accompany him on his journey.

São Tomé and Príncipe, the least visited country in Africa - Highlights of São Tomé island

The African islands of São Tomé and Príncipe are nestled in the warm equatorial waters of the Gulf of Guinea and are often forgotten by most travelers. Over the last few years, the country has become a true paradise for eco-tourism with its expansive lush jungle, love for slow food, picture-perfect beaches, and jaw-dropping mountainous volcanic landscape.
The main island of São Tomé is full of incredible experiences: from the coastline shaped by immense pressure of volcanic activity (such as Boca do Inferno blowhole) and scattered with pristine sandy beaches, to steep vertigo-inducing basaltic spires (such as Pico Cao Grande) and ruined plantation houses (like Ribeira Ize). Perhaps the most mysterious experiences are found in the surrounding islets - sailing under the rocky Ilheu de Santana is definitely unforgettable. To top it all of, the people of São Tomé will charm all the visitors with their lively culture and unique cuisine.

São Tomé and Príncipe, the least visited country in Africa - Highlights of Príncipe island

The African islands of São Tomé and Príncipe are nestled in the warm equatorial waters of the Gulf of Guinea and are often forgotten by most travelers. Over the last few years, the country has become a true paradise for eco-tourism with its expansive lush jungle, love for slow food, picture-perfect beaches, and jaw-dropping mountainous volcanic landscape.
The pristine island of Príncipe is home to only 7,000 inhabitants and offers unrivaled natural landscapes: from incredible snorkeling/diving and paradise-like sandy beaches to enjoy all on your own, to sweeping vistas over the needle-like volcanic spires (the most inspiring of which is Baia das Agulhas or Bay of Needles) and enormous waterfalls (such as Oque Pipi), to the remains of old plantations (like Roca Sundy and Roca Paciencia). There is no better way to recover from modern life than to spend a few days in Praia Sundy which will spoil all your senses. To top it all of, the people of Príncipe will charm all the visitors with their warmth, lively culture and unique cuisine.

São Tomé and Príncipe, officially the Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe (Portuguese: República Democrática de São Tomé e Príncipe), is an island country in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western equatorial coast of Central Africa. It consists of two archipelagos around the two main islands of São Tomé and Príncipe, about 140 km (87 mi) apart and about 250 and 225 km (155 and 140 mi) off the northwestern coast of Gabon.

The islands were uninhabited until their discovery by Portuguese explorers in the 15th century. Gradually colonized and settled by the Portuguese throughout the 16th century, they collectively served as a vital commercial and trade center for the Atlantic slave trade. The rich volcanic soil and proximity to the Equator made São Tomé and Príncipe ideal for sugar cultivation, followed later by cash crops such as coffee and cocoa; the lucrative plantation economy was heavily dependent upon imported African slaves. Cycles of social unrest and economic instability throughout the 19th and 20th centuries culminated in peaceful independence in 1975. São Tomé and Príncipe has since remained one of Africa's most stable and democratic countries.

With a population of 201,800 (2018 official estimate),[11][5] São Tomé and Príncipe is the second-smallest African sovereign state after Seychelles, as well as the smallest Portuguese-speaking country. Its people are predominantly of African and mestiço descent, with most practicing Catholic Christianity. The legacy of Portuguese rule is also visible in the country's culture, customs, and music, which fuse European and African influences. São Tomé and Príncipe is a founding member state of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries.

A Crazy Journey to the EQUATOR (in São Tomé)

HELLO from São Tomé and Príncipe - my 145th country! It's a tiny Portuguese-speaking island just 200 miles West of Gabon in Central Africa.

This morning, someone at my guesthouse told me that the Equator runs through the very bottom part of the country, so I decided to go on a wild journey to find it, and document every step of the way. Have you ever been to the equator?

**NOTE** -- This video style is a completely new approach for me. It's longer, unscripted and there's no voice over. I would really appreciate if you could give me some feedback on it. What did you like and what did you not like ? Should I do these kind of spontaneous vlog videos more often? Or stick to my old style of educational/documentary videos? Thank you so much!

I Just Spent $7,000 on Flights to Africa...

I just spent the most money I've EVER spent in one single day. Seven thousand United States dollars ($7,000 USD). I'm so full of emotions right now (excited, nervous, happy, anxious) that I'm not sure how to react...

The $7,000 was spent on flights to less-touristy countries in Central and West Africa which I will be visiting by myself in Sept/Oct: Namibia, Angola, São Tomé and Príncipe, Gabon, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Chad, Mali and Mauritania.

The most nerve-racking part about all of this is that I need to have these flight confirmations to start applying for 4 visas right now (Angola, Cameroon, Chad & Mali) -- and if any of those 4 African visas get denied, then I will have to cancel a portion of the trip and I will not get reimbursed for the flight costs. High risk, high reward!

In case you are wondering, I made this video for a few reasons:

A) I like to be honest & transparent with you in all my videos, and budgeting is very important for any traveler

B) I think it's often overlooked how expensive traveling to Africa is, so I want to tell you (again) the reality of traveling on this continent. Sure, you CAN do it on the cheaper side, but I don't have the time to go overland or the energy to sleep in dirty hostels. I also need access to (the best) wifi everyday so I can work and upload videos!

Truth be told, I am really excited for this trip and to witness the hidden cultures in these African countries first-hand. Have you ever been to any of these 9 countries in Africa? I will gladly take some tips/advice or any local connection!
