It is an initiative that echoes the fact that since the days of its first settlement, Seychelles has always been a rich melting pot of people from the far reaches of the planet. In 2011, Seychelles is set to become the stage for representatives of the world’s most prestigious carnivals.
The Seychelles International Carnival of Victoria will be held over a three-day period in March 2011, when it will become a focal point for representatives from the world’s most famous carnivals who will be invited to the islands to take part in this exciting international event.
Promising to be the focus of international as well as local attention, the Seychelles International Carnival of
Victoria will feature a procession of colourful floats representing the various participants’ national carnivals, as well as a raft of other dedicated activities all of which will fall under the Carnival’s theme.
The event is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, as it brings the lively ambiance of international carnival time to the islands, but it’s hardly the only reason to visit. Traditionally associated with the most beautiful beaches on the planet, the Seychelles islands are at the top of the world’s list of romantic destinations. Only 5 hours from Johannesburg and 3 hours from Nairobi, the Seychelles offer superb sailing, diving, snorkeling, excellent fishing, nature trails and of course, great beaches.
