The Morne Seychellois Park is the largest in Seychelles and was created in 1979. It covers a total surface area of 3,045 hectares, more than 20% of Mahé . It is 10km in length and between 2km and 4km wide and equipped with an extensively trail network covering more than 15km. A total of 12 different trails can be explored either by half or full day excursions.
While the dazzling coastline of Mahé is undoubtedly the main attraction, it’s crucial that you take the time to explore the island’s mountainous interior. One of Mahé’s highlights, the splendid Morne Seychellois National Park encompasses an impressive 20% of the land area of Mahé and contains a wide variety of habitats, from coastal mangrove forests up to the country’s highest peak, the Morne Seychellois (905m). Choked in thick forest formation, the enigmatic, central part of the park is virtually deserted and can only be reached by walking trails; you don’t have to go very far before the outside world starts to feel a long, long way away. Without a doubt, the best way to appreciate the area is a guided walk.
The park allows visitors to experience the wonder of the indigenous fauna and flora of Mahé. Parks and trails wind through the park, with marked routes and maps available, and these are probably the best way to experience the Morne Seychellois National Park.
There are some glorious landscapes to see, as well as the ruins of old cinnamon distilleries in the valley of la mare aux cochons and of the first school for freed slaves' children at mission.
