    1 Friday, March 4, 2022 Mahe Island, Seychelles Embark 6:00 PM
    View of Mahe Island, Seychelles

    Mahe is the largest and most important island of the Seychelles archipelago. While this spectacular island is only 27 km long it is dominated by a mountain range with its tallest peak Morne Seychellois, at 930 m in height, being central to a wonderful national park. There are also some delightful marine national parks off the island. The capital city of Victoria is small enough that it does not take too long to walk around, and this is the best way to see the city and to get a feel of the place and its people, who are often called the ‘friendliest people in the world’.

    2 Saturday, March 5, 2022 La Digue, Seychelles 12:00 AM 12:00 AM
    View of La Digue, Seychelles

    La Digue is the third largest inhabited island of the Seychelles, lying east of Praslin and west of Felicite Island. La Digue also boasts the friendliest people and most tranquil, serene and relaxing atmosphere in Seychelles. Where cars are shunned in favour of bicycles and ox-carts, the pace of life is necessarily slower. Today, tourism is the island’s mainstay as it offers wide deserted beaches, such as Anse Source d’Argent and Grand Anse, which are perfect for long walks, safe swimming, snorkelling and fishing.

Though Nosy Be’s inclination is towards mass tourism, it is still a largely peaceful place with sugar cane plantations, rum distilleries, ylang ylang bushes, and lounging lemurs. This still beautiful island offers some amazing snorkelling and diving opportunities as well as primary forests with great wildlife. Additionally, this volcanic island, though it has not erupted in recorded history, is home to 11 volcanic crater lakes that are great for both spearfishing and taking a ride on an aqua-jet.
