Location

The Seychelles archipelago is located in the Indian Ocean, 1600 km from the east coast of Kenya. It comprises 115 islands, 40 of which are granite islands and 75 coral atolls. Uninhabited until the seventeenth century, the sailors of the East Indies company were the first to land here in 1609. Praslin island is a tropical paradise; aside from the beautiful beaches, its main attraction is the Vallée de Mai forest, one of the rare examples of virgin forest and one of three places in the world where the “coco de mer” palm grows in the wild. The Seychelles, thanks to its isolated position and late colonization, are home to many unique species that cannot be found elsewhere in the world. Giant tortoises live only in two regions in the world: the Galapagos and the Seychelles.
