About Vallée de Mai National Park in Seychelles

The Praslin Island in Seychelles is home to a national park and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983. Comprising an area of 19.5 hectares, the Vallée de Mai National Park is mainly a palm forest that has remained unchanged since the first exploration of Seychelles.

The national park features a well-preserved palm forest, its flagship endemic species coco de mer, and five other endemic palms. The coco de mer (Lodoicea maldivica) is a monocot tree and has the largest double-nut seed of any plant in the world. The fan-shaped tree can grow up to a height of 25 to 34 meters. The double-nut seed can weigh up to 5 kilograms on average.

There are five other endemic palm species found in the national park: millionaire's salad, thief palm, Seychelles stilt palm, latanier millepattes, and latanier palm. So, these six species of palms are unique to this reserve and also to the Seychelles islands. Including all species, there are some 4000 palm trees in the Vallée de Mai National Park. Two more species of endemic trees in the park are Dillena furruginea, also known as bwa rouz, and Northea hornei. Also, Takamaka trees are found at the entrance to the park.

The park is also famous for its wildlife, including birds such as the Seychelles black parrot, mammals, snails, and reptiles. Some of the common avifauna in the park is the Seychelles black parrot, blue pigeon, bulbul, sunbird, and kestrel. Due to a rich variety of wildlife, the Vallée de Mai National Park in Seychelles is a popular birding and wildlife watching spot. Three hiking trails lead visitors through this primeval forest. The shortest trail is about 1 km and the longest one is 2 km. All trails in Vallée de Mai National Park are clearly marked and perfect for families. There are signs indicating some of the endemic trees to keep an eye out for.

November through February is the best time to visit Vallée de Mai National Park. It remains open from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm every day.  Last tickets for the park are sold at 4.30 pm. Adults and children above 12 are required to pay 20 Euros as the entry Fees of Vallée de Mai National Park.

      This is my second booking through Travel Triangle. The support rendered by the travel agent with all necessary details on timely manner is very much appreciable. However, there was communication gap for pick up from Hotel for Day 1 and Day 2 of our trips. This could have been handled better by the agent at Krabi. Other than this, it was perfect coordinating with Travel Triangle!!!

    • Trip to Seychelles

      Initially when we tried using Travel Traingle, we were very skeptical. After getting the quotes from several travel agencies we felt a little.more confident. The service from the travel agency, Red Letter Holidays was really great from start to finish. They (Parul from Red Letter Holidays and Shikha from Travel Triangle) would respond to all my queries and the smallest of questions quite rapidly and with a great deal of courteousness Their travel plan for Seychelles was also very good as they ensured to leave plenty of time for rest and relaxation. What surprised me most was that the local contact of Red Letter Holidays took care of us like royalty and made us feel welcome to the Creole culture. A big thank you to Red Letter Holidays and Travel Triangle for making our Honeymoon a special one. Prasanna and Harshini

The Patience that Saif has to tackle all issues irrespective of time and the follow up he do is amazing... We really had a lot of fun with great joy and pleasure. As we got upgraded to 5 star property of Adaaran Vadoo water villa from normal water villa and it was the best memory a one can get.
