Why Seychelles: A tiny archipelago of granite islands lying some 1,500 kilometres east of the African continent, the Seychelles offer amazing marine life, abundant birdlife, idyllic beaches and the ultimate in seclusion.
Climate: The climate is tropical so warm all year round, with two opposing trade winds. The gentle north-westerly trades blow from Oct-Mar, while the brisker south-easterly winds occur from May-Sept. Apr-May and Oct-Nov see the calmest conditions.
Combine With: A “Big 5” safari in Kenya, Tanzania or both these magnificent East African countries. Historical Ethiopia also pairs well with this destination.
Getting There: There are flights from Nairobi and Addis Ababa to Seychelles International Airport near Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles. Various carriers also fly to the country out of cities in the Middle East.
