The small British Overseas Territory of St Helena is one of the most remote islands in the world, which has given it a rich and unique ecosystem characterised by its endemic flora and fauna. This safari provides you with the opportunity to become one of the first travellers to arrive by air to discover St Helena’s breathtaking landscapes, from verdant green hillsides to rugged volcanic cliffs, and discover the cultural and natural highlights of the island. In the warmer months of January and February, whale sharks can be seen gliding through the clear ocean waters, allowing you to swim alongside them as you explore the rocky coral reefs and shipwrecks off the coast.
