Measuring 155km2, Mahé is the largest of the Seychelles’ islands and, being home to the 905 metre high peak, Morne Seychellois, it is also the highest. Some 90% of the country’s 81 000 population live on the island, which is also the site of the vibrant capital city Victoria and the International Airport.

While the Northern and Eastern parts of the island are the most populated and developed, the pristine Southern and Western areas provide an abundance of spectacular national parks, all waiting to be explored and enjoyed. These include: Baie Ternay Marine National Park and Port Luanay Marine National Park, as well as the offshore St Anne Marine National Park, Conception Island, Therese Island, Anonyme Island and Silhouette Island.

Mahé’s expanse of virgin forest offers a sensory feast. Full of hidden secrets and surprises, here you will find an abundance of rare bird and plant species, from the endangered and endemic Medusagyne Oppositifolia, otherwise known as the Jellyfish Tree, to the carnivorous Pitcher Plant and a vast array of Orchids.
