Africa + Indian Ocean
    The Seychelles

    Rocky beach

    White-powder beaches and rich wildlife

    With its mix of low-lying coral islands and dramatic granitic rocks, picture-perfect beaches and warm, crystalline waters, this archipelago of over 100 islands scattered across the Indian Ocean is the ultimate do-nothing tropical paradise. But there’s more to the Seychelles than meets the eye: a myriad of different ecosystems, some of them still completely untamed, provide rich and varied flora, while the wildlife ranges from the rare giant tortoise to hundreds of species of birds.

    Direct flights from South Africa and Kenya mean that the Seychelles is one of the best beach add-ons to a safari holiday. The rich marine life means that for divers and snorkelers, the safari holiday can continue.

    • From the moment you leave home, we will be on hand to ensure a totally seamless experience.

    We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.

    When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.

    If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.

    Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.

    We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.

    We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.

    We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.

    Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.

    We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.

    The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.

    Written by Millie Summers, Africa + Indian Ocean Destination Expert
    I have been lucky enough to work at two very different lodges on remote islands off the north coast of Kenya and in the north of Lake Malawi, which makes me all the more curious to go behind the scenes when I visit a new camp in Africa. Knowing how rare and precious the fresh vegetables and meat supplies are in these far-flung spots, it’s always fascinating to see how places cope and keep guests happy.

    There are only 11 villas and a team of 130 on this 2sq-km private island paradise. Many of our clients arrive by helicopter but I came by boat from Silhouette Island. Having worked at two African island lodges and seen the challenges that come with operating in remote locations so open to the elements.
