Ultimate Aldabra: A Voyage through the SeychellesNovember 16, 2014 - December 2, 2014
On this extraordinary Seychelles and Aldabra adventure travel voyage, photographers, naturalists, birders, and snorkelers will find themselves enraptured by the astonishing richness of the region’s terrestrial and marine environments. The focus of your Seychelles adventure travels is the Aldabra Island Group, including Aldabra Atoll, one of the largest atolls in the world, with a perimeter of over 70 miles. Zodiacs bring you ashore for nature walks to search for numerous native and endemic species of flora and fauna. The protected waters create a haven for coral reefs and fish which you will discover on frequent snorkel excursions throughout your Aldabra tour. Often referred to as a Garden of Eden, this Seychelles tour offers an outstanding opportunity to witness a place where nature still reigns supreme.
Seychelles and Aldabra expedition highlights:
- Spend four full days exploring the magnificent Aldabra Island Group, a World Heritage Site that has remained largely untouched by humans due to its remoteness and inaccessibility.
- Discover a wealth of rare and endemic species including giant Indian Ocean tortoises, Aldabra white-throated rails, Seychelles paradise-flycatchers, and Seychelles blue-pigeons.
- Snorkel over 150 coral species to discover some 850 species of rainbow-hued fish, as well as manta rays, spinner dolphins, green and hawksbill turtles, and hundreds of giant clams.
- Photograph a variety of sublime vistas, including La Digue, where huge granite boulders and swaying palms frame the picture-perfect, pink- and white-sand beaches—no Seychelles expedition would be complete without a visit here.
