Seychelles

The Republic of Seychelles is an archipelago comprised of over 100 islands. Situated just south of the equator in the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles are world-renowned for their tropical beauty and stunning beaches. A visit to the Seychelles is the perfect way to end a traditional African safari vacation, affording ample opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, boating and even golf. Of course, the Seychelles is also the ideal destination for simply relaxing on the beach.

Mahe
Mahe is the largest of the “inner islands” and the home to about 90% of the entire population of the Seychelles. Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles, is found on Mahe, as is the international airport, so a trip to the Seychelles will almost certainly begin and end on Mahe. On Mahe, visitors will find a wide variety of accommodations, beaches and a culturally rich restaurant scene, the latter displaying the Seychelles European, African and Asian influences.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites
The Seychelles are home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites:

  • Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve – Located on the inner island of Praslin, this reserve boasts a natural palm forest preserved in a nearly original state. Vallee de Mai is also home to the famous coco de mar, the largest seed in the plant kingdom.
  • Aladabra Atoll – A raised coral atoll comprised of 4 coral islands thought to be at least 125,000 years old.

Island Hopping
Due to the staggering number of islands that make up the Seychelles, visitors can experience a wide range of geographies, activities and cultural attractions in a single visit. Trips from Mahe to various islands can be done by plane or boat, and depending on time and distance, can be day trips or overnight excursions. Two of our favorites include:

  • Bird Island – A 30-minute flight from Mahe, Bird Island is an eco-tourist paradise. Home to over 1,000,000 terns when the trade winds blow, Bird Island is also known for its large population of giant tortoises, including one weighing in at over 650 pounds and said to be at least 200 years old.
  • Cousin – A popular day-trip destination, Cousin Island is a nature reserve featuring rare birds, tortoises and turtles.

LET OUR JOURNEY SPECIALISTS HELP CREATE YOUR TRIP OF A LIFETIME

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

What experiences have you been dreaming of?
