Trip Planner: Africa / Seychelles / Mahe Island / Victoria / Seychelles National Botanical Gardens
Visit a tropical oasis in the outskirts of the capital at Seychelles National Botanical Gardens, teeming with rare and endemic plant life. Established over a century ago, the gardens stand as one of the oldest national treasures of the Seychelles, extending across 2 hectares (5 acres) of undisturbed flourishing plant species. Walk beneath the shady canopies of rare palms, observe the spice and fruit trees, and snap photos of the vibrant palette of native orchids. Keep an eye out for the gardens' Aldabra giant tortoises, which can live up to 150 years. A convenient cafe offers welcome refreshment amidst rainforest scenery.

The botanical gardens can be easily reached by foot from the city center as it is very close (about 10 minute walk). We were impressed by the different beautiful plants. Some of them you find just as inside plants in Europe :) It was a nice experience to feed the giant tortoises with the provided leaves. Bring a mosquito repellent. The café was also nice and chilled. Loved the fresh fruit juice.
Although the garden is small and the ticket expensive (250 SCR/person), I did not regret visiting it. There are many plant species that you can see there and of course the bats and birds and the big turtles 🐢 that are so cute and you can feed them with green leaves. When I visited the garden, I could only pay by card, the car parking next to the entrance was free and the garden was closing at 3.30pm.
Lush trees and greenery, nice to visit, feels very natural and organic. Many trees and shrubbery and real soil under it all. Both paved and grassy paths to traverse. Includes a giant turtle enclosure/sanctuary which was good to experience
Very nice for a relaxing departure day or transit. Also a good place to go if you are staying in Victoria. Entry fee is 250 which is alright. Be careful to stay on the paths as you can easily walk into construction or sewage canals if you go past some trees. Make sure to check out the Wildflower café.
I really love the place. Must visit and see each and every thing there. A wonderful place to spend about two hours. Charming gardens, rare and beautiful plants, fruit trees, and a few animals. Must see giant tortoise
