Great place to spend some time
Oct 2021
We spent some time in the gardens admiring the trees and flowers - specially the coco de mer. You can also feed the giant tortoises here and enjoy the fresh air and the birds and nature.

Very nice, calm and good fresh air with varieties of trees. You can feed the turtles there ! It was a great moment but it’s a 20-30min tour, no services inside but worth the tour. You will only see turtles, trees and some birds.

Lots of friendly turtles (they probably don't bite?)

Nice place--not the biggest or best labeled but lovely (bring bug spray for the mosquitoes). The giant tortoise enclosure was the highlight for us. They give you leaves to feed the tortoises so you get to see them up close and personal. They're almost aggressive in a slow motion kind of way. 150 rupees per person for non-residents (children under 12 are free). The cafe was closed when we were there.

Can be skipped if you've already seen the Seychellios turtles

Actually the garden is small. Doesn't differ much from the tropic greenery you have all around the island. The only thing worth to see here is the giant turtles corner, but yet hard to pa for the 10$ entry fee.

Amazingly Beautiful Garden!
Apr 2021
The National Botanica Garden was extremely quiet when we arrived, we felt super privilege to have the whole garden just for us. (Easter)

The garden was established over a century now since 1901, spreading around 15 acres which is a perfect size.

Entering the garden, we had witness the famous signature plant of Seychelles “Coco De Mer” along the way into the garden.

There was one stunning Coco De Mer tree that was plant by Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh, on the royal couple visit to Seychelles in 1956, which is now 65 years old.

Another highlight of this trip was to see giant tortoises, which they are from the island of Aldabra. We were stunning to see them indeed as they were very huuuuggggeeee.

An outstanding trip for us to start with exploring the country. The staff were so friendly and helpful, we felt so welcome there.

Lovely walk, beautifully set out, not many activities, cafes were all closed. But ok! Tickets overpriced a bit for what you are actually getting!

Beautiful garden
Oct 2019
Absolutely gorgeous garden. The grounds are very well kept. It is really worth the visit although mosquito repellent is a must. It takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to walk around unless you stop for turtle feeding or enjoy the garden cafe.
