Wildlife Holidays in 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.
