Project Description


Discover Seychelles with Ujuzi African Travel

With more than two-fifths of its land set aside for conservation, Seychelles is a true paradise for both humans and wildlife. The archipelago comprises 42 granitic islands that broke off from India many millions of years ago, plus another 113 islands formed from ancient coral reefs. Seychelles’ isolation makes it unique: no terrestrial mammals lived here prior to human arrival in the 1600s. The result is an incredible diversity of endemic plants, birds, amphibians, land snails, geckos, and the Aldabra giant tortoise.

Dive into the ocean and you will find even more wildlife—over 1,000 fish species have been recorded in Seychelles waters. Or simply laze on a sparkling white sand beach, letting nature come to you in all its sun-dappled glory.

The beautiful beaches of Seychelles bring an element of relaxation and luxury to your African safari experience.

4-Day Seychelles Extension

Indulge in a tropical getaway on Mahé Island. You will stay in a luxurious villa surrounded by native Takamaka trees and palms that sway in the ocean breeze. When you’re not lounging on the beach, you can enjoy nature walks, birdwatching, and kayaking—all without leaving your Seychelles resort.

But rewards await those who venture out. Visit the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens to see cultivated tropical blooms and beloved endemics, from statuesque palm trees to Aldabra giant tortoises. A variety of native birds add to the gardens’ charm, including the Seychelles blue pigeon, Seychelles sunbird, and Seychelles bulbul. Take a ferry ride to nearby Praslin Island to visit Vallée de Mai, Seychelles’ largest virgin forest of endemic coco de mer palms and a World Heritage Site.

In Sainte Anne Marine National Park, dive among colorful fish or view them from the comfort of a glass-bottomed boat. Each of the park’s eight islands is unique, with many nature trails available for exploring pristine wilderness. Wind down your visit with a tasting at a local rum distillery.

Whether you laze all day in the sun or explore the islands’ many natural treasures, your visit to Seychelles will be one to cherish.
