Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve

Travel Guide Africa Seychelles Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve



Valléé de Mai Nature Reserve is on the Unesco World Heritage List. It is one of only two places in the world where you can see the coco de mer palm growing in their natural state. The other location is Curieuse Island. This valley's forest is is just marvellous and the view of sunlight filtering through is just great! The famous coco de mer, from a palm-tree once believed to grow in the depths of the sea, is the largest seed in the plant kingdom.
With some luck you might see the Seychelles black parrot here. As this is a fragile forest area, keep to the tracks and don't take anything away or leave behind.
