  • We're having a great time there. The courses are rich and well documented. We feast on discoveries and for photo lovers it's royal. Fauna and flora are at the rendezvous! A beautiful place to visit!

  • As the previous reviews (more after the fact unfortunately ...) I report a very complicated access, a staff not smiling at all and especially a big scam: 215 rupees the pancake suzette (very good anyway), with taxes 25% it makes the 19 euros the pancake ... unheard of! The garden (110 rupees the entrance I think) when to him is nice but the course is poorly arrowed and the posters turned by the sun are unreadable. The poor turtles were parting in a big mud... Sad. For those who wish to make the forest trail, be careful it is steep and slippery. Plan the shoes. We haven't seen a lot of flowers but I don't think it's the season. The visit of the house is uninteresting, only the architecture of the building is pretty. In short, a visit that could have been nice without all these inconveniences and the feeling of being mistaken for a leaf holder on legs.

  • Fantastic tropical garden. Very similar to the Eden project in Cornwall UK, but in a natural environment rather then under a biome. Highly recommended but try to avoid mid day heat as there is a lot of walking up and down the garden
  • Up a steep hill (becareful in a small rental car ). Has a beautiful flower garden. Think it was a poke stop too, lol. Worth going to if you are in the Seychelles.
