São Tomé is a small tropical island in the Atlantic Ocean, close to Gabon. Together with the island of Príncipe, São Tomé forms one of the smallest independent nations in the world, located some 220 kilometers off the western equatorial coast of Africa. São Tomé combines well-developed infrastructure with rich flora – 700 species including a hundred orchids – and fauna – birds and marine turtles – of which many species are endemic.
