Introducing the Seychelles Archipelago

Mahe

Situated over 1,000 miles from the east coast of Africa, the island of Mahe is the biggest and most populated island in the Seychelles. Measuring 28 kilometres long by 8 kilometres wide, it's home to the nation's capital, Victoria with approximately 72,000 residents, with a mix of African, Indian, Chinese and European populations.

First visited by the British in 1609, Mahé was not visited again until Lazare Picault's expedition of 1742, when the gradual process of settling the island began, first by the French whose direct influence continued until 1814 and then as a British colony up until Seychelles gained independence in 1976.

The capital, Victoria is mostly dominated by stone and wooden houses from the early 20th century, painting a colourful picture thanks to their bright facades, shutters, and balustrades. There are two main centres to the town, one of which centres around the Clock Tower, a replica of the clock tower at Vauxhall Bridge in London - in this area you can find banks, the post office, the Palace of Justice and the National Museum. The second centre surrounds the Sir Selwyn Clarke Market, which is around five minutes' walk away from the clock tower. This market is well-worth a visit, especially early on a Saturday morning, when a veritable hive of activity is on offer, including the sale of fresh fish, spices, and exotic fruits.

Over the last fifteen years, the government has embarked on an ambitious land-reclamation strategy, creating new areas in the northern part of the harbour basin, building a large sports complex, tennis courts, a swimming centre and a multi-purpose hall. In the process, the adjacent district of Roche Caiman saw around 2,000 residential units spring up, something that the ever-expanding city desperately needed and that thankfully curbed construction in Mahé's mountainous regions.

Part of this new development process has been Eden Island, located to the south of Victoria, a more up-market version of this new residential area, offering contemporary design, luxury villas, elegant bars and restaurants, a marina, and an excellent shopping centre.

Beyond Victoria, it takes little more than two hours to drive around the island, passing by in excess of sixty beaches and coves on the way. Inland, Mahé's mist forests contain rare endemic plants found nowhere else in the world, such as the Jellyfish Tree, the carnivorous Seychelles Pitcher Plant and the Seychelles Vanilla Orchid.

Mahe

Praslin

Situated some forty kilometres away from Mahe - the island of Praslin is both the second-largest and the second most-inhabited of the Seychelles islands. Measuring 26 km² (about 10 square miles) in size, and with around 8 000 inhabitants, Praslin retains a sleepy, laid back atmosphere. This paradise island hosts some of the finest beaches in the world, including beaches such as Anse Lazio and Anse Geogette, which frequently make the top ten lists.

If powdered white sand and spellbinding shallow turquoise sea were not enough, in the centre of the island, hidden in the heart of a stunning tropical rainforest, is the renowned Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The palm forest here remains largely unchanged since prehistoric times and contains over 4,000 palm trees, six species which are not only unique to this reserve, but also to the Seychelles, not being found anywhere else in the Indian Ocean. However, the Reserve is most famous for being home to the legendary Coco de Mer palm tree, the bearer of the largest seed in the plant kingdom and

which has been treasured as a collectable and mystical aphrodisiac for centuries. Fauna found within the Reserve includes the endemic Seychelles Black Parrot, the tiger chameleon and the diminutive Seychelles tree frog.

Curieuse Island

Originally named Ile Rouge due to the red coloured soil, the French claimed possession of the island in 1768 and named it after the schooner 'La Curieuse', which was under the command of explorer Marc-Joseph Marion du Fresne. In 1771, sailors set fire to the island, intending to make harvesting the coco de mer nuts easier. The fire destroyed many of the islands forests and its native trees and today, indications of the fire can still be seen nearly 250 years on.

From 1829 to 1965, Curieuse Island was used as a leper colony where leprosy sufferers were kept and cared for. Today the remains of the leprosarium are still in existence, though in a dilapidated state. The former doctor's house, which dates back to 1870, is an excellent example of Creole colonial architecture. Used as a museum and educational centre, it serves as a testimony to the history of the island.

In 1979 Curieuse and its surrounding waters were declared a Marine National Park in order to protect the native wildlife. A year earlier, Curieuse had benefitted from a government conservation project which set out to re-locate tortoises from Aldabra to the island. Today it is the home of roughly 500 Aldabra Giant Tortoise, 300 of which live at the Ranger's Station and approximately 200 in the wild.

Curieuse is the only other island, apart from Praslin, where the unique and iconic coco de mer trees grow in their natural state. In 1967 a fire destroyed much of the vegetation on the island, including more than 150 Cocos de Mer palms. This was another reason why the government eventually took ownership of the island and introduced coral restoration and conservation projects.

There are several trails and hikes for visitors to enjoy on Curieuse Island. One such trail goes from Baie Laraie, your disembarkation spot, over to Anse St. José on the other side of the island, passing over the boardwalk through a thick and rich mangrove forest. The forest is home to seven different species of mangroves - also look out for the rare Seychelles Black Parrot. There is also a rocky trail to the summit of the island.

Aldabra Atoll

When part of the British Indian Ocean Territory, proposals were put forward to locate an RAF base on one of the islands, as well as radio transmitters on behalf of the BBC. Thankfully, neither of these projects saw the light of day and in 1982, Aldabra was designated a World Heritage Site administered from Mahé by the Seychelles Island Foundation. It is this organisation that grants very limited access for tourists to visit the island.

The atoll consists of four large islands made of coral surrounding a shallow lagoon, encircled themselves by a coral reef. The land surface is mainly ancient coral reef dating back to about 125,000 years ago. Due to its remoteness and inaccessibility, the atoll has remained largely untouched by humans for the majority of its existence. It is one of the largest atolls on earth and contains one of the most important natural habitats for studying evolutionary and ecological processes. Aldabra has over 400 endemic species and subspecies which includes vertebrates, invertebrates and plants.

It also supports over 100,00 giant tortoises, the location being the last place that they now reside within the Indian Ocean, apart from Curieuse Island where some were transplanted back in 1978.The atoll is also an important breeding ground for endangered green turtles and critically endangered hawksbill turtles.

Several species of birds are endemic to the island such as the last flightless bird of the Western Indian Ocean. There are several large water bird colonies, including one of only two existing oceanic flamingo populations and the second largest colony of frigate bird in the world. Last but not least, the coconut crab, the largest land crab in the world calls Aldabra home, as well as hammerhead sharks, barracuda and manta rays. In ancient times, the dominant land predator was the crocodilian Aldabrachampsus, a horned crocodile of which some remains from the Pleistocene period were found on the island.

Aldabra Atoll

Alphonse Island

Discovered in 1730 by the Knight Alphonse de Pontevez, Alphonse Island is a nature lover's paradise, blessed with a wide range of beautiful and unusual flora and fauna. The island is an idyllic place to swim with Spinner Dolphins, snorkel with a marine biologist, explore the island by bicycle, or meet the century-old giant tortoise. Alphonse Island is also famous for being the best scuba-diving destination in the Seychelles and offers great diving opportunities for all abilities.

The fifteen dive sites surrounding the island are a paradise for numerous marine species, such as green turtles, eagle rays, nurse sharks and an array of colourful fish.

Alphonse Island

Aride Island

Located 8 kilometres north of Praslin, Aride Island hosts one of the most important seabird populations in the Indian Ocean, with more breeding species than any other island in the Seychelles. Eighteen species of native birds (including five only found in Seychelles) breed on Aride. The island is managed as a nature reserve by the Island Conservation Society of Seychelles and is owned by Island Conservation Society UK, a UK Registered Charity. The only human inhabitants are the reserve's staff, including the Island Manager, Conservation Officer and rangers who carefully manage the amount of visitors to the island.

Amongst the one and a quarter million seabirds regularly breeding on the island include the lesser noddy and the roseate tern, the latter the world's largest population.

Endemic species include the Seychelles warbler, the Seychelles fody and the Seychelles sunbird.

Astove Island

Astove is breathtakingly beautiful. It is a world filled with colour, where the daily dramas of a pristine ecosystem play out in front of your very eyes. Astove offers a rare privileged opportunity to gaze into a world which has changed very little in the years that have passed.

Looking back on the history of the island, human intervention does not seem to have taken place before 1760, when the Portuguese frigate La Dom Royal, laden with plunder and slaves, went aground. Those aboard made it to the island, but the captain and crew abandoned ship and struck out for Mozambique in a long boat. They never returned for the slaves, who organized into a community and subsisted on the bounty of the island and the sea

Sometime later, a passing ship reported that there was "a treasure trove of slaves" to be had for the taking, but repeated efforts to capture them failed when almost all the ships foundered. In 1796, a British ship attempted to remove the slaves by force - and succeeded in embarking some 100 of them - but the slaves revolted and helped thwart the effort, which failed completely when the ship also foundered. The remaining slaves were eventually picked up and evacuated to Mahé.

Present day Astove is a desirable destination for fly-fishing, the main bounty being the Giant Trevally.

Bijoutier Island

Alphonse's tiny neighbouring island of Bijoutier occupies pride of place within the waters of a turquoise lagoon. This circular 2-acre island, set like a gemstone as if to crown the beauty of the lagoon, is fringed with beach shrubs and coconut palms. A walk around the island will take all of 10 minutes.

Bijoutier, which has never been inhabited, boasts a variety of wildlife that includes colonies of frigate birds, turtles, giant blue mud-crabs as well as a world renowned population of bone-fish.

Bijoutier Island

Cerf Island (Sainte Anne Marine National Park)

Situated in the Sainte Anne Marine National Park, Cerf Island measures just 1.5km long (about a mile) and lies just 3km east off the main island of Mahé. The island is undoubtedly one of the unspoilt jewels of the Seychelles, located in one of the lushest and most beautiful marine environments in the world. The waters surrounding the island offer exceptional marine life with more than 100 species of reef fish, crabs, starfish, sea urchins and octopus. Cerf is also home to a unique snorkelling trail, accessible from the beach, which leads past four well-marked snorkelling spots, one of which even features the rare 'black corals'. The guiding buoys are each mounted where there is a particularly beautiful coral, and where there is more likely to be a wealth of colourful fish compared with other locations inside the reef. The small 'buoy road' is around 100 metres away from the beach, and runs parallel, ensuring easy conditions even for absolute beginners to snorkelling.

On land, fans of nature and tranquillity will find an island which possesses no roads or shops, providing the ideal place to relax and enjoy nature in its purest form.

There are also welcoming arrangements for day visitors, who can enjoy spa treatments or a delicious meal in one of the island's three beach restaurants. Furthermore, you can simply relax or go for a walk before finding a spot on one of the beautiful beaches to sunbathe.

For the explorer, there are two somewhat overgrown jungle trails that criss-cross the island lengthways and long ways. The short hike across the island is worthwhile, as Cerf is home to some rare plant and animal species. There is a small fruit bat colony on the island, as well as a population of rare miniature chameleons and a significant number of giant tortoises. Crossing the jungle from east to west only takes about 45 minutes due to the island's small size, but this walk is nevertheless exciting and rich in discovery.

Desroches Island

Desroches was named after a former French governor of Mauritius and was, in days gone by, a prosperous coconut plantation. The island is administered by the Seychelles Island Development Corporation (IDC), there is a small village on the island where local people are involved in the island protection and environmental projects. Located there is The Castaway Centre, who can arrange various diving and fishing excursions, whilst an interactive Discovery Centre provides a fascinating insight into the variety of fauna, flora and marine life of the island.

There are spectacular opportunities around the waters of Desroches for fly, bottom and deep sea fishing, while diving is also excellent with some 15 classified dive sites nearby.

For those that prefer their feet on land, there are 9 miles of soft sand beach as well as exotic palm-fringed bicycle trails.

Farquhar Island

Discovered in 1501 by a Portuguese explorer by the name of Joao da Nova, the Farquhar Atoll, named after British merchant Sir Robert Farquhar in 1824, is one of the largest atolls found in the Seychelles archipelago.

Covering an area of about 17,800 hectares, it is the most southerly point of the Seychelles islands, closer to Madagascar than from the main island of Mahe. The atoll comprises of ten islands, the two main islands, North and South island, making up 97 percent of the land mass. Once part of the British Indian Ocean Territory, 1976 saw it ceded to the Seychelles as part of independence.

When the island was first settled in 1835, casuarina trees were planted to create a forest providing timber for construction and charcoal. During this early period of settlement Hawksbill Turtles are reported to have been harvested from Desroches, D'Arros and Poivre under common ownership, until this activity became uneconomic. Later in the 1880s the island was resettled and a coconut plantation was established and copra became a major source of income (Copra is the processed, dried kernel of coconut utilized in the extraction of coconut oil). By 1906 Desroches was producing 15 to 20,000 coconuts a month, as well as still exporting firewood. The settlement of Grande Poste established on North Island is still dominated by the plantation manager's house.

Today, much of the island is still covered in coconuts and timber production continues. Casuarinas and other trees are felled and the timber used to construct furniture and for building purposes. The copra drying house (calorifere) is still on the island although the coconuts are now exported whole and commercial production of copra has ceased.

Tourism is important to the island and consists mainly of anglers seeking out an impressive variety of species which include Bonefish, various Trevally species including the ferocious trophy sized Giant Trevally, the finicky Indo-Pacific Permit, Trigger fish, Barracuda, Bumphead Parrot fish and Milkfish.

Grande Soeur Island

Grande Soeur (also known as East Sister) is located approximately 6 kilometres off the northern tip of La Digue. With Petite Soeur (or West Sister), they form the "Sisters Islands". These two tiny private islands are covered by lush vegetation and surrounded by well-preserved coral reefs. Grande Soeur is completely undeveloped, the beach situated on the west side of the island is, for many, the most beautiful beach in the Seychelles. Marine life is exceptionally abundant on the coral reef stretching in front of it: sea turtles resting serenely under the surface, hundreds of tropical fish and even small white-tip sharks swimming along the seabed. A journey to the centre of the island is rewarded by the sight of some very impressive granite rock formations.

Poivre Island

Since being first discovered in 1770, Poivre Atoll has seen a wide selection of interesting characters, crops and ownership throughout the years. Through all of its changes, it has remained a gem that the Seychelles is happy to count amongst its treasured jewels. With a past history of vanilla farming and copra production via one of the Seychelles oldest coconut plantations, today's main island activity revolves around being an in-demand destination for fishing enthusiasts, offering excellent fly and deep-sea fishing.

The island also offers nature lovers rewards in the shape of a thriving bird population which includes Blue Heron, Chinese Heron, Greater Frigate Birds, Noddies and Fairy Terns. There are also a significant number of

nesting hawksbills and some green turtles. As for the human inhabitants, Poivre has a small village on the Eastern point of the Island, sometimes referred to as Pointe Baleine village. The village is home to a small number of caretakers and conservationists that studiously look after the precious ecosystem on the Islands.

Poivre Island

St. Joseph Atoll

St Joseph, like its near neighbour D'Arros, was once a thriving coconut plantation, interspersed with such trees as casuarina, bois mapu, cassant, and bois blanc. It traditionally housed a small population of contract workers from its neighbour who, over the years, have been engaged in the copra (refined coconut flesh) industry and also in fishing.

The atoll's lagoon is home to a massive population of sting rays and a healthy number of turtles. Giant blue mud crabs migrate from the depths of the lagoon onto the surrounding flats with the high tides. Bone fish abound as do grouper, lobster and several species of coral fish that will delight divers and snorkelers alike. There is also a large colony of frigate birds as well as numbers of Blue Heron, Crested Terns, Whimbrels and plovers.

St. Pierre Island

Highly recommended for a snorkelling experience. St. Pierre's granite cliffs shoot out of the turquoise sea, topped by a crown of palm trees. Lying a mere 1.5 kilometres off of Praslin Island, this island deserves its reputation as a natural aquarium. Whilst the coral was badly damaged in the 2004 tsunami, re-growth has been encouraging, with the coral returning gradually to its former glory. Divers can expect to find countless colourful fish including Clown Surgeon, Powder Blue Tang and Sergeant Major, to name but a few.

St. Pierre Island

Introducing the Spice Islands of Tanzania

In centuries past, Arabian mariners in traditional dhows traded for exotic spices and more infamously for slaves. Arabian influence is evident in the people and religion. Indian influences show up in the colourful glasswork and the English imperial buildings hint of a Colonial dominance in years gone by. The islands have endured many foreign occupations, including Dutch and Portuguese. All have left their collective mark to create a destination to marvel and explore.

Zanzibar Island

Located 15 miles off of the coast of Tanzania, Zanzibar Island most certainly has the soft sand beaches and turquoise waters that the Seychelles has. However, our recommendation is to forego the beach experience and plump for discovering the capital, Stone Town, the cultural heart of the island.

It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses, whose original owners vied with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings. This one-upmanship is particularly reflected in the brass-studded, carved, wooden doors - there are more than 500 different examples of this handiwork, dating back to the 19th century when Zanzibar was one of the most important trading centres in the Indian Ocean region. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways. Shops sell wood carvings and wonderful ornate Zanzibar chests, as well as spices, textiles, paintings and antiques. We do however recommend not to buy any products related to protected species on the islands, such as sea shells and turtles.

The coralline rock of Zanzibar was a good building material, but it is also easily eroded. This is evident by the large number of houses that are in a bad state of repair. Several buildings have already been renovated and the Stone Town Conservation Authority has been established to co-ordinate the restoration of the town to its original magnificence.

Places to visit whilst n Stone Town should always include a stop at the Anglican Cathedral of Christ Church. Built in 1873 by Edward Steere, the third Bishop of Zanzibar and famous British abolitionist, the Cathedral was symbolically built on the location of the whipping post from the island's largest slave market. The unusual architecture includes a unique barrel vault roof and gothic and Islamic details. Steere himself is buried behind the main altar, as he died a few weeks prior to its completion.

The grounds also host one of the most famous and poignant Slave Monuments in the entire world. It acts as a reminder of an active trade which took place dating back to the 17th century, when Oman was an important trading nation and needed inexpensive labour to work their date plantations, their main export. By the 18th century the Dutch arrived looking for slaves to work in their plantations in the East Indies. Britain tried to end slavery in 1798 with a Treaty of Commerce and Navigation signed between Britain and the Sultan of the time, which was reinforced by the Moresby Treaty in 1822. Britain and the United States sent Consuls to Zanzibar to monitor the treaty agreements but these were ignored and slave trade simply continued openly. It was only after the British takeover of the mainland after the First World War that the slave trade finally saw an end.

Latham Island

Latham Island is a flat coral island located 60 km (37 mi) south-east of Unguja and 66 km (41 miles) east of Dar es Salaam. It is roughly 300 metres (980 ft) long and 300 metres wide. The island is an important breeding ground for various bird species, namely the masked booby, greater crested tern, sooty tern and the brown noddy. Latham is also thought to be of importance for nesting turtles

Pemba Island

Simply put, Pemba is a magical island. Unlike Zanzibar, Pemba is peppered with gentle, undulating hills and deep verdant valleys, covered with a dense blanket of clove, coconut, mango and other fruit and crop plantations. A more fertile land is difficult to imagine. Amongst the greenery are ruins of mosques and tombs mostly reclaimed by the forest- sites that date back to the period of Arab domination, when Pemba Island was seized by the Sultan of Muscat (Oman) in the 17th century and from where, after establishing his court, ruled over his own people from afar.

The shoreline of Pemba is lined with mangroves and lagoons, interspersed with idyllic white-sand beaches. Offshore, coral reefs offer some of East Africa's best diving and snorkelling. Pemba is famous for seriously large sea fish, which include barracuda, tuna, shark and even whales. It's a glorious playground for experienced divers as visibility is generally good and there are some spectacular pinnacles. Note however, currents are strong, so it's not ideal for first novice divers.

The local population are welcoming and extremely friendly - who wouldn't be living in such a place. Most live in small villages in traditionally designed houses built using mud walls around a wooden frame and with roofs of thatch or corrugated iron. Pemba's inhabitants are predominantly Muslim. It has a culture that is even more traditional than Zanzibar, and the island gets far less visitors - and hence sees less of the outside world. Thus expect to see Pemba's women wearing the veil, and few villagers speaking anything other than Swahili. Pemba also has a strong reputation as a 'magic' island, a centre for ju-ju traditions of medicine and wizardry.

Pemba Island

Kilwa Kisani

The ruins at Kilwa Kisani lie on an island off the coast of Tanzania, north of Madagascar and is a designated World Heritage site. Founded in the ninth century, its location on the Indian Ocean allowed it to develop in to an attractive destination for trade along the east coast of Africa between the 11th to the 16th centuries. It traded principally in gold, ivory, iron, tortoise shell and slaves from interior Africa, including Mwene Mutabe south of the Zambezi River. Imported goods included cloth and jewellery from India and porcelain and glass beads from China. The archaeological excavations at Kilwa recovered the most Chinese goods of any Swahili town, including a profusion of Chinese coins. The first gold coins struck south of the Sahara after the decline at Aksum were minted at Kilwa, presumably for facilitating international trade.

Mosques, a market place and an ostentatious palace, known as Husani Kubwa were built, although not fully completed.

Today, significant buildings that can be visited include the Gereza Fort - an animated 3D model is shown here. Nearby, a collection of ancient Chinese and Islamic artefact make the site a worthwhile visit.

Another must see is the ruins of the Great Mosque, the oldest mosque in East Africa and built between the 13th and 15th century. Another 3D animation is shown here

Introducing Madagascar, Mayotte and the Comoros Islands

Nosy Be (Madagascar)

Nosy Be is an island located 5 miles off the northwest coast of Madagascar and is Madagascar's largest and busiest tourist resort. However, busiest in this case does not mean spoiled, you can expect a predominantly sleepy, laid-back atmosphere. You will also note what appears to be an ever-present fragrance emanating from the coffee, vanilla and sugar plantations as well as the scented yellow ylang-ylang flower, used in the production of perfume. Add a profusion of gleaming white palm-fringed beaches, a wonderful tropical climate and a diverse marine area and you are well on the way to paradise found.

The island is made for scuba diving and snorkelling, surrounded as it is by colourful coral reefs and brightly coloured fish such as wrasse, parrot fish, trigger fish, damsels, butterfly fish and many more.

For those fortunate enough to be able to spend more time, consider trips to nearby islands such as Nosy Sakatia, the orchid island - Nosy Komba, the Lemur Island, or Nosy Iranja - a breeding reserve for hawksbill turtles.

On Nosy Be itself, check out the Lokobe Nature Reserve which contains three types of lemurs as well as the beautiful Nosy Be Panther Chameleon.

Mamoudzou (Mayotte)

Mamoudzou is the capital of Mayotte, a beautiful French overseas department in the Comoros Island archipelago; unlike other islands in the Comoros Group, which obtained independence from France in 1975,

Mayotte chose to remain part of France. A predominantly Muslim country, only about half the population can actually read or write French.

Located on Grand-Terre, the main island of Mayotte, Mamoudzou is a gateway to the region's spectacular sights and cultural delights, boasting a charming harbour and a nearby covered market selling fresh local produce as well as handicrafts.

Glorieuses (Comoros)

Originally discovered by the Spanish Captain Juan de Nova who was at the time in service to the Portuguese, the islands were later purchased by successive French nationals and worked for profit, mainly by Seychellois from the main island of Mahé. Despite only totalling 5 square kilometres, the islands have been bickered over, claimed and re-claimed by a number of nations, even up to the present day. Currently, the main island hosts a meteorological and radio station which is occupied by members of the French Foreign Legion. The region has been designated a nature reserve.

Mohéli (Comoros)

Mohéli is the smallest island in the Comoros archipelago and it is also the wildest. Covered in luxuriant vegetation, it is home to the first protected natural environment in the Comoros, Mohéli National Park. A huge sanctuary with rare and endemic fauna, this marine and terrestrial reserve provides the opportunity to discover the island's incredible biodiversity. Among other animals, the rare visitors to the park may spot the Comoro falcon, the maki (a lemur living exclusively in this region) and Livingstone's fruit bats, the largest flying foxes in the world with a wingspan of up to 1.5 metres. The site is also an important egg-laying spot for green sea turtles.
