Pickup info

Guests will be picked up from hotel and dropped back after the excursion.


This tour affords guests the opportunity of having a close view of the largest seed in the world as well as hearing the pleasant and distinct tweet of the black parrot. The Vallée de Mai, located on Praslin Island, is a must-see nature reserve, home to the biggest nut in the world and other endemic palms in the Seychelles, the black parrot and other species such as the bright Seychelles green gecko and white slugs.

Following an informative tour around the Vallée de Mai, the journey continues to La Digue Island which is the fourth largest island in the Seychelles archipelago. On La Digue, the tour will visit the famous Anse Source D'Argent Beach and the L'union Estate where visitors can see the gathering and processing of coconut oil as well as observe the vanilla plantation.

Our tour of l’Union Estate will reveal the secrets of the production of ‘coprah’ the flesh of the coconut that you will find drying in the kiln and taste while it is still warm. You will learn how coconut oil is made and have the opportunity of taking in the delights of the giant tortoise pen and the architectural splendour of the Plantation House.

    From relaxed (low) to ones where you need to be fit to join in.


    No surprises here. These tours/activities are those most anyone can do if they are fine with fairly flat walks and getting in and out of transport.


    Like to be active, even very active, but not pushed too far. This is the one for you.


    These tours/activities require you to be very fit. Probably not suitable for children.
