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.

    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.
