Once believed to be the original site of Eden, the Seychelles is the ultimate tropical paradise. Indulge in the white-powder beaches as well as the rare and rich variety of flora and fauna that await you on a luxury holiday in the Seychelles.

Why travel to the Seychelles

With its mix of low-lying coral islands and dramatic granitic rocks, picture-perfect beaches and warm, crystalline waters, this archipelago of over 100 islands scattered across the Indian Ocean isn’t only a relaxation and rejuvenation destination.
There is more to the island nation than meets the eye: a myriad of different ecosystems, some of them still completely untamed, provide an impressive array of flora, many not seen anywhere else. The wildlife ranges from giant land tortoises to a kaleidoscope of hundreds of tropical birds. If you would like to experience thrilling adventures on a Seychelles luxury holiday, we can organise private experiences ranging from exhilarating water sports like snorkeling and diving among vibrant marine life to exploring lush nature trails and action-packed fishing expeditions.
A wonderful choice for couples and luxury honeymoons, the islands sing with romance and our Destination Experts have the inside track on where best to celebrate à deux and what to do with your loved one.
Direct flights from South Africa and Kenya mean that the Seychelles is one of the best beach add-ons to a tailor-made safari holiday. The rich marine life means that for divers and snorkelers, the safari holiday can continue.

Wildlife Fact

One of the rarest species of birds can be found in Seychelles, the bare-legged Scops Owl or Syer. This specific owl is so rare it was once thought to have become extinct, but was rediscovered in 1959. You can find it at the Morne Seychellois National Park on Mahé Island.

James Bond Fact

Ian Fleming, the author of the famous James Bond novels and short stories, came to the Seychelles islands in 1958 to find inspiration for the next chapter in the spy saga (For Your Eyes Only) and ended up naming one of his characters, Milton Krest, after a tonic and ginger beverage that he tasted during his stay.
