The beautiful volcanic island of St Helena is one of the most remote places in the world. Situated 1,200 miles off the coast of Africa, there is nowhere else quite like it. Its pristine peaks, sand dunes and lush green hills make up a rugged paradise that, though just 47 square miles, is home to 400 endemic bird and plant species as well as whalesharks.
The island’s superb biodiversity and untouched landscapes have long attracted a handful of savvy travellers and keen wildlife enthusiasts who could only reach St Helena by taking a five day voyage by boat from Cape Town. In 2017, the first commercial flights commenced operation flying once weekly, from Johannesburg and via Windhoek to reach the Island. Recently, mid-week flights have also begun operating, offering more flexibility for your St Helena holiday.
