“Nice way to discover plants”

Seychelles National Botanical Gardens
Ranked #2 of 40 things to do in Victoria
Attraction details
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The botanic garden is a very nice way to discover Seychelles endemics : coco de mer, fruit bat, land turtles. Nice flowers and incredibles trees. You can easily spend 1 or 2 hours here.

This is an excellent 1-2 hr excursion where you can see tortoises, walk in what feels like a rainforest and see the famous Coco de Mer without having to go to Praslin. Easy parking and self-guided, this park is at the base of a mountain and has nifty nature trail in the middle.

Downsides - The tortoise enclosure is small and a little sad. Also, I would have liked a bit more information about the various types of plants.

Not much to see here. Small venue and well kept, but you go through it in an hour tops. The fruit bats are difficult to get a glimpse of, but the tortoises are nice to look at for a few minutes.

Giant tortoise , beautiful lush greenery and stunning trees and flowers. Well worth a visit. Can walk from the centre of town and relax on one of the many benches.

The location was hard to find, but it was lovely. It's a bit small, so you can see everything within an hour easily.
