As before, this is new and part of a commercial area which spoiled my memories of 30 years ago when the Seychelles were so quiet.

Places like this do not exist anymore. Freshly caught and grilled red snapper, barracuda, job fish. Served whole. Along with as much fresh organic salads and fruit you can handle. ( the left over greens are feed to the Museum Giant Tortoise and fruits, of course to the fruit bats). Steve the proprietor his wife Jeannie and a family of... More

The place has a very interesting story and is part of the Iland past. however, it is titally worn down, a pitty. Its location is wonderfull, close to the beach and "source d'Argent' a unique beach.

Praslin Museum is located on the second largest island of Seychelles, Praslin Island. Its a little museum with smal shops were you can buy some sovenirs. The fee is expensive but you really can go on the bush walk and see the natural palm threes, the fruit bats, the turtles and of couse the real coco de mer. The staff... More

We stopped over at the "Praslin Museum" to experince some heritage. We got out of our car next to an old house and three cages. In these cages were bats, guinnea pigs and tortoises. A man approached us and demanded we pay R180 so view these animals, we said that we were there to see the museum he then demanded... More

I was really exited to go to visit the museum and I made a special day to go and do so. I arrive at 2:30 and has been told that the guided tour starts at 3:00 . I decided to wait and sit on the one of the comfortable seats. I have been given a glass of orange juice, passion... More

this little museum has potential. if only more time was spent on organizing it further. the staff were very nice and knowledgeable, but it is somewhat of a racket at $15 US/person. the highlight was feeding the fruit bats.

You're told a lot about medicinal plants and live on the Seychelles. You can feed a fruitbat. But it's terribly expensive (do negotiate on the price). There are no kameleons or black parrots. You pay 10 times the price of a normal state-owned museum.

During our stay at the nearby Acajou hotel my girlfriend and I visited "Praslin Museum" to have a look at the museum. The museum itself consists of a botanical and picture-based part. Very small but relevant and with a good host - Steve. Praslin isn't floated with good restaurants so we asked Steve for advice. To our surprise he told... More
