One of our highlights from our trip to the Seychelles. We loved every minute exploring and learning about the different spices, medicinal plants, fruits and endemic coco der mer. We even saw cotton flowers for the first time. Lovely 5 Stars

Excellent walks and plant descriptions, good views and good cafe and small shop. 2 km up a steep narrow hill from bus stop, so go by car or taxi or tour.

We wanted a nice Spice garden tour but did not get it. Really like to know how spices are cultivated, if somebody can help us smell and taste but did not get that properly.

The Spice Garden was not as enchanting as the ones we've seen in Kerala. While yes there were nice spices, but we found the tours not as informative and would have loved to get more info on how the spices are grown and cultivated.

the road up is not for the faint hearted. Throughly enjoyed our walk around the gardens, best to wear trainers as the terrain is quite rough.
