Why Seychelles

For anyone looking for unspoiled tropical paradise hundreds of miles from anywhere, where one can lie on palm-fringed beaches, swim in warm, crystal-clear topaz seas and just relax, the Seychelles Islands are the answer. A haven for honeymooners, fishermen and families alike this island destination complements the African safari experience perfectly.

There are 92 islands in all, 38 of them made of granite (the only mid-oceanic group of granite islands in the world) and the remainder coralline. The islands are particularly noted for their wide variety of flora and fauna. Mahe, the largest and most populated of the islands, is surrounded by coral reefs, and the warm, sparkling blue water is safe for swimming. A car (or guided excursions) are almost a necessity for exploring, as the roads weave through some of the most exciting coastal scenery in the world. Stroll through the Botanical Gardens in Victoria to see the coco de mer palms, orchids and giant tortoises. Excellent walks are also possible into the interior of the island where there are forests, coconut, cinnamon and vanilla plantations as well as magnificent views of the smaller islands and coastline.
