    Nosy Lakandava, 14.00 – 18.00 hrs

In the heart of the rainforest, which has been protected since 1923, an exciting excursion will take you to see the breathtaking flora and fauna of Madagascar.

    Victoria/Mahe, 8.00 – 0.00 hrs

    Victoria/Mahe/Seychelles

    The Seychelles are a dream destination made up of fascinating coral and granite islands. The world-famous granite cliffs are impressive evidence of the forces of nature, which once caused continental drift. There is plenty to see in the capital, Victoria, such as the Clocktower and the Botanical Gardens. Get to know the lively centre better before enjoying views of remote bays and exuberant tropical forests on a panoramic trip*. Another insider tip: the Jardin du Roi on a hillside in the middle of the jungle. On a walk through this Garden of Eden, you will not only learn about the many varieties of peppercorns and other spices and fruits growing here, you can also try some of the delicious produce for yourself in the outstanding restaurant. There is an amazing view from up here over the green canopy of trees to the ocean – the adventurous among you can swing from platform to platform through the tree tops on a canopy tour*.

    Wednesday, 11.03.2015

    La Digue, departure 6.00 hrs
    Praslin, 7.00 – 17.00 hrs

    Praslin/Seychelles

    A chorus of exotic birds in the tropical rainforest, waves gently lapping against the sandy shore and an amazingly colourful diversity underwater as well – wherever you look on the second largest island in the Seychelles, you will see some idyllic sights. Walk through the Vallee de Mai* shaded by palm trees and marvel at the legendary Coco-de-Mer nuts in this jungle paradise. Or sail by catamaran* to Coco Island and Felicite Island where you can enjoy some very special snorkelling.
