Long renowned as the perfect honeymoon destination, the beautiful Indian Ocean nation of the Seychelles is also a great deal more. With two World Heritage Sites, four far-flung archipelagos, numerous nature reserves and extensive coral reefs, the many diverse islands hold much of interest to lovers of nature, both above and below the sea’s surface.
Warm Indian Ocean waters teeming with fish, nudibranchs, sea turtles, whale sharks and manta rays; rare land and sea birds; endemic flora; skinks, day geckos, giant tortoises and the world’s largest nut, the coco de mer: all find refuge in these extra-special islands. Fascinating wildlife walks, great scuba and snorkelling, safe swimming, fine sailing and simple beachcombing – just some of the ingredients available with which to create a gloriously natural holiday in the Seychelles.
We offer exceptional two-week cruises to the legendary Aldabra Atoll, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to over 150,000 giant tortoises, flightless rails and rare boobies. Also visited are other Outer Island atolls such as Cosmoledo, Astove, St Francois and Bijoutier as well as the main Inner Islands of Mahe, Praslin, Aride and La Digue.
Being outside the cyclonic belt and with benign wildlife, no malaria and safe bathing beaches, the islands of the Seychelles are a haven for families and those desiring a relaxing yet stimulating wildlife and natural history holiday.
