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.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Seychelles HOLIDAYS
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.
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.
Bird Island was a delight and the accommodation excellent. Our leader Gemma Jesse was knowledgeable about history, politics, botany, everything which made for enjoyable conversation.
