Add To Plan

Experience Mahe's exceptional beauty during this scenic drive through the central and northern parts of Seychelles' largest island.

Depart the pier for the drive through Central and Northern Mahe. Seychelles' largest island is renowned for the greatest contrast in scenery found anywhere in the archipelago. You will take in spectacular views and photo opportunities as you pass by towering granite peaks, and through luxuriant vegetation, enchanting villages and magnificent beaches.

Next, a visit will be made to the Botanical Gardens. Here, you will see giant Aldabran land tortoises, fruit bats and 200 species of indigenous flora, including elephant apple trees, octopus trees and double palms, or coco de mer. A stop will then be made at a hotel in Victoria for those wishing to take a quick dip in the Indian Ocean.

While in Victoria, your guide will escort you from the stadium parking lot for a brief walking tour of the town center. Along the way, you will see local landmarks that include the clock tower, a replica of the one outside of London's Victoria Station, the old Courthouse, National Museum, colorful markets, and other Colonial buildings.

Please note: The tour of the Botanical Gardens involves approximately 30 minutes of walking over uneven ground and exposed roots, and a few steps. The tour of downtown Victoria and its markets involves approximately 45 minutes of walking. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or guests who utilize a wheelchair. On Sundays and public holidays the market and shops are closed in downtown Victoria.
