Description

Leave the world behind and join us in exploring the mysterious realm of Vallée de Mai, the legendary valley where General Gordon of Khartoum became convinced was the original site of the biblical Garden of Eden. Stroll along the winding footpaths of a place so special it has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site, beneath the shade of an-cient, towering palms bearing the most extraordinary fruit of all: the famous Coco de Mer. A double lobed coconut, it holds the record as the world’s heaviest seed, mystifyingly designed by Mother Nature to perfectly imitate the sensual shape of a woman’s pelvis, adding to its Eden lore. Listen for the call of one of the world’s rarest birds, the Seychelles Black Parrot, as you wander further into the valley. Your guide will introduce you to its spectacular treasures, which includes one of the planet’s tiniest frogs, stick insects, chameleons and six species of endemic palms.
