Destination - St Helena

Discovered in 1502 by Portuguese navigator Joao da Nova, St Helena changed hands a number of times before finally coming under the control of the British during the sixteen century. St Helena was once a busy staging post for trade between England and the Far East, the island is now much quieter as shipping trade has diverted to quicker, alternative routes.

Just 47 square miles in area and with no natural harbour St Helena enjoys warm weather all year round. At higher elevations in the centre of the island it can be quite cool at night. There are two rainy seasons March-May and July-September.
St Helena is in part a wind-eroded desert with multi-hued ridges and 1000ft high cliffs of bronze coloured volcanic rock; part lush green pastures and vegetation filled valleys. The island has a number of unique, endemic plans and wildlife.

The islanders are affectionately known as ‘Saints’ and they are a happy mixture of people descendant of British East India Co workers, Boer prisoners of war, African and Chinese servants, amongst others. Saints are a friendly, helpful and cheerful people who will make you very welcome to their island.
