THINGS TO DO & HOW TO GET THERE
In the Seychelles the temperature seldom drops below 24˚C, or rises above 32˚C, making it the ideal destination for sunworshippers.

Air Seychelles flies direct to Mahé from Johannesburg, the flight leaving around midnight on a Sunday & a Friday night, & arrive in Mahé around 6.30am. You can either catch another flight on the “island hopper” with Air Seychelles to Praslin (around 15 minutes flying time) or you can catch the shuttle from Mahé airport to the jetty, & catch the ferry from there to Praslin.

Don’t forget to pick up a complimentary map of the Seychelles from one of the brochure stands at the airport.

There are many island excursions available (e.g. to Bird Island, Cousin Island, St Pierre etc) & you can book for these at the main jetty in Praslin. On Praslin itself you can visit Cotê d’Or (Ka-dor as the locals pronounce it!) where there are some stunning beaches & the shopping is fairly good. The local bus service runs from the Praslin jetty every 20-30 minutes.

A visit to Anse Lazio is also an option – voted the most beautiful beach in the world. You will board a bus at the Praslin jetty & travel by bus for about half an hour. Be warned, there is a very strenuous walk of about 1km from the bus stop to the beach, so don’t take the bus unless you are feeling very energetic! You will be able to hire a taxi at the jetty to take you, however be prepared to pay a lot more for the trip.

A day at La Digue island is an absolute must! Leave early in the morning – the schooner leaves from the jetty at Praslin at regular intervals throughout the day On arrival at La Digue, one may hire bicycles (about SR200 a day) & visit the beach at Grand Anse, or the giant tortoise sanctuary or vanilla plantation. You can easily cycle around most of the island during the course of the day.

The Vallei de Mai on Praslin is a World Heritage Site & there you can enjoy the majestic splendour of the forest & see all six of the Seychelles’ endemic palms, plus an array of other trees & plants.

Timetables for most of the ferry departures are available upon request from our office, but please bear in mind that these may be subject to change without notice.
