family learning

Vallée de Mai is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a rich experience for the whole family - Torsten Dickmann.

Seychelles is one of the greatest examples of natural conservation in the world. With 50% of its land area and 30% of its maritime area protected, the whole family can learn a little more about the different species and actions taken by the islands to protect their ecosystem. The Nature Reserve of Valley of May, in Praslin, is one of the best places to discover the local fauna and flora of the Seychelles. Home to some of the islands' most famous species such as the coco de mer and the black parrot, it is possible to take guided tours through the trails in the untouched forest. The Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and allows direct contact with nature, as well as valuable learning for all generations.
