At a glance, the Seychelles appear to simply be a sun-soaked, secluded archipelago of 115 islands peppered across the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa. However, there is more to these pockets of paradise than meets the eye.
Not only is it the eden island retreat of the yachting world, thick forest and mountainous terrain makes for great wildlife spotting opportunities. Swim alongside turtles, discover coral reefs that teem with marine life or kayak through the dense mangroves spotting incredibly rare birds and reptiles.
Not far from the Kenya’s African plains, a trip here is ideal for those longing to combine adventure and relaxation. What’s more, is the island’s admirable eco-friendly attitude, making the islands an ever-more attractive destination.
