SOME REASONS TO DISCOVER SEYCHELLES THIS WINTER

Visit two exclusive UNESCO sites
Virtually untouched by humans, Aldabra is the second largest coral atoll in the world and has distinctive fauna, including the largest population of Giant Tortoises in the world. Visitors need prior permission to visit this remote atoll. Vallée de Mai, on the other hand, is located in Praslin Island and is easily accessible by ferry. Many believe it to be the original site of the Garden of Eden, owing to its secluded location and somewhat mystical ambience. A trip here is a must to see the wild Coco de Mer – the world’s largest coconut (weighing up to 20 kgs!).
