I read some reviews and everyone was saying this was a wonderful place to visit. Firstly their prices are very high and the service is poor. I had the vegetable curry crepe...it was freezing cold it tasted like a tin of vegetable curry that they had poured onto a pancake and served to me...i was starving and had to force... More

Maybe this garden had a good time. No it is not taken care off. More chickens and rabits in bird cages then healthy plants or animals. There's one Ara with one eye with bad feathers and no food or water. They have about 20 Seyschelles tortoises divided in 2 small areas (5 by 7m) living in their own waist, on... More

Just follow the signs in the direction of the garden and you will have to go up a steep hill until the complete end. It is totally worth it and for us a totalust see. Admission fee is 125 SCP for an adult. You will get a map and a short explanation which paths you have to follow and then... More

Make sure you visit here and remember your camera. The fruit bats just seem to hang out here and our plentiful for those photos. The views looking back down along the coast are breath taking. The special Rum that they sell here is well worth buying. Only wish we bought more. No cash needed here they take debit / credit... More

Hi-light of our visit.Well maintained trail.Clearly marked trees and useful map makes for an enjoyable visit at your leisure.If you take the bus ,be warned that it is a 1 km up hill hike to the garden.Views from garden are stunning.Well worth a visit.

Very nice and organized place. A lot of details in writing on the spices and a good view on the sea. At the end of the tour i bought an espresso of Illy. The price of the espresso is 87 Ruppies which is 6.12 Euro!!!!!! Why????

Picturesque, 85-acre working plantation situated high in the rainforest valley of South Mahe; large variety of spice plants, tropical fruit trees, essential oil plants and endemic palms. We visited as part of a group from a cruise ship and arrived later in the afternoon. The little shop was just about to close, and had to be persuaded to stay open... More

The map is a bit hard to follow and not all the numbers are easy to find but if you're not too rigid about it and just take it as it comes it's a very interesting experience. And the coco de mer here are stunning with very informative plaques which... More
