Wildlife holidays in Seychelles

Tell me about the Seychelles …

The Republic of the Seychelles is composed of a scattered archipelago of wonderful islands in the equatorial western Indian Ocean.

They hold an exceptional and diverse natural history, and the larger granitic islands have a rugged and often precipitous relief which is particularly beautiful.

Our Seychelles specialist recommends...

The Seychelles’ are an idyllic backdrop for a wildlife holiday and we try to make the most of our time on these islands. Endemic birds and flora provide plenty of interest as do large variety of endemic insects and reptiles.

The Seychelles

Just to say how much I enjoyed the Seychelles Holiday. Gemma Jesse, our wonderful local guide is a real expert on natural history of the islands, very encouraging to a beginner birdwatcher like myself and wonderfully friendly, energetic and engaging.

The Seychelles

Gemma was superb - immensely knowledgeable and keen for us to have the best possible experience. No praise would be too high. The huge range of wildlife that we saw; Gemma's immense knowledge and experience and her willingness to share it; the fact that Gemma helped to add more snorkelling opportunities for those who love it; snorkelling with turtles; visiting Cousin; the barbecue on Curieuse, the Vallee de Mai; the whole ambience of Bird Island - and the very interesting fellow passengers worked well on the tour.
Gemma was a fantastic leader - very knowledgeable, helpful and good fun.
