Think pristine shores and azure sea, beautiful islands and turtle watching, deserted beaches and island hopping. In short: honeymoon heaven.
The name is synonymous with the world's most beautiful islands, each one a gemstone set in the perfect azure of the Indian Ocean. These islands possess unrivalled beauty living up to the country's slogan, Seychelles 'as pure as it gets'.
Racially harmonious, politically stable and with an absence of poverty, Seychelles is an increasingly popular destination.
A week in the Seychelles works well with a week on safari in East Africa, particularly at the time of the wildebeest migration.
There was a time when there were distinct safari seasons across Africa. But things have changed over the years and visiting outside the traditional seasons is now not only possible, but often desirable.
