9. Mahé: Wild South Discovery Trip with Local Lunch
Discover Mahé on our Wild South #CreoleAdventure, and enjoy an authentic islander's day out and about!
We start off with a brief tour of Victoria, one of the world's smallest capitals, and tour the colourful bazaar, see the Little Ben Clock Tower, and indulge in the rich sights, sounds and scents of the Seychelles community.
A scenic drive into cool mountains of Sans Soucis follows, heading for Mission Lodge for breath taking, panoramic views from the central mountainous region of Mahé. Once the site of an ancient school for slave children, it is now home to the songs of Seychelles’ exotic birds. Seemingly suspended in the mountain mists is the Tea Plantation, which you will pass on your descent to the surreally beautiful west coast and the photo opportunity of your stay as the road meanders through picturesque villages.
This particular rainbow expedition ends at the spectacular Cap Lazare Nature Reserve & Restaurant, amid the scented blossoms of Frangipani trees and the mani-cured gardens of a private estate where you will feast on a mouth-watering, feet-in-the-sand Creole buffet served right on the beachfront. After lunch, our guide will take you for a walk to explore this exceptional domain; enchanted nature trail and scenic panoramic views, large population of free roaming giant land tortoises, and endemic plants. The rest of the afternoon is yours to enjoy the wonders of Cap Lazare’s Nature Reserve & Restaurant underwater world and its secluded small beach to unwind and relax.
