Edelweiss Tours is providing the most complete private Tour of Praslin. The private tour includes a visit to the National Park the Vallee de Mai, or my personal favorite, the Nature Park Fond Ferdinand, which is more unique & has a larger diversity of plants, trees and palms. Visiting the world's most beautiful beaches, such as the Anse Georgette, Cote d'Or, Anse Lazio & many more which are far away from the tourist areas, accessible only by foot, or on narrow roads. Including in the program is a trip to Mt. Zimbabwe (viewpoint), from where we find the great panoramic view with the lush green of the island and overlooking the ocean. (on request I also offer hikes, excursions & nature trails, which lead us to the most remote regions of the island, through the densest jungle and breathtaking vantage points of Praslin). I am also a passionate photographer and it would give me no trouble to take (many) photos of you throughout the our tour. If feeling hungry (snacks) Restaurants, with creole dishes are never far away. Advantages of the 6 - 9 hour tour by car and foot, is getting a general over view of the Island itself in just 1.day. Including general information which help facilitate your stay with us in the Seychelles.
