5-day Visit to Exotic Praslin Island
Traditionally associated with the most beautiful beaches on the planet and framed by timeless granite boulders, the Seychelles islands are at the top of the world’s list of romantic destinations. 5 hours from Johannesburg and 3 ½ hours from Nairobi, the Seychelles offer superb sailing, diving, snorkeling, excellent fishing, nature trails and of course, great beaches. Praslin is home to the World Heritage Site, Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, so remarkable that it was once believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden. This hauntingly beautiful primeval forest is home to some 6,000 Coco-de-mer trees. Praslin lies 27 miles north-east of Mahe, 15 minutes by plane. Round trip inter-island flights from Mahe to Praslin are included.

Upon your international arrival in Mahe, transfer to a short flight to Praslin Island. Upon arrival, you will be met and transferred to Le Duc De Praslin or Constance Lémuria.

Le Duc will now boast two fine restaurants, including a restaurant right on the beach, a small beach spa to cater for a variety of relaxing massages, a swimming pool with an attached Jacuzzi, a lounge with a library and internet connection. Within walking distance from the Le Duc are two good diving centers. One can also find taxi boats, restaurants, casinos, and shops. Bicycle, car hire and excursions can be easily arranged from the hotel.

Luxury Option: Constance Lémuria is nestled on the northwest shore of the idyllic island of Praslin. The 5* Lemuria has been crafted into the hillside amidst dense vegetation and overlooks the beaches of Kerlan and Anse Georgette.
