    dont walk on the road to the National Park

    the road seen from our bus

    You might get the idea to save some money and walk along the road to the national park, BUT that road is ment for cars only and at many places there is no space at all for hikers and cardrivers will also not expect anyone when going around one of the many bends in the jungle. There might be a seperate path uphill from the village, but I dont know.
    36 euros was the halfdaytour that was offered by our cruiseship and I think that was a bargain anyway, as the entrancefee to the national park alone is 20 euros, and the excursion included also a tour through the island to a beach and a bit more than 1 hour there.

    Be careful when walking around Vallee de Mai, because many of the palmtrees have thorns and they are hard to be seen, but it will be very hard to get these thorns out of your skin again when you have touched them once. Insects are no problem in that national park, we saw a few snails and some spiders, but they were not poisonous.

    The Seychelles have implemented foreign exchange restrictions. All foreigners visiting the islands have to pay for services, such as restaurants, hotels and activities with foreign currency, local Seychelles Rupees are not accepted. Therefore it is advisable not to carry large amounts of local currency, since these may only be accepted in a few shops on the islands and cannot be changed into foreign currency. The main foreign currency on the islands is the Euro.
