If you have been to the Seychelles you will know Music is a love of the local people. It will be heard all over the market place in Victoria and on picnic sites all over the Seychelles Islands. You will see people dancing, smiling and just loving life.
But where did the origins of the Seychelles Local Kreole Music and Dance come from?

Cannon roar and belch fire and smoke. Eyes sting and blur, trying to make sense of the forms emerging through the haze. Hundreds of men march down the cobblestoned street, ten or more across, wearing red and carrying muskets - and now they halt - kneel - and fire!
Thrilling and terrifying, despite the knowledge that it is all smoke and no real ammunition, this is the annual reenactment of the… Continue

24th September 2010: What an exciting day we have had our first Hawskbill Turtle laying her eggs at Anse Forbans beach. But unfortuntely this young turtle decided to lay her eggs in the wrong place.
We where concerned for the safety of the nest and contacted the Marine Conservation Society of the Seychelles for advice.
The Marine Conservation Society of Seychelles arrived and after a short discussion it was decided the best thing to do is to move the nest to a safe spot - it was… Continue

Surfing in Seychelles can really be an amazing experience for a surfer looking for a non crowded scene. The water is warm year round, but it is recommended that you bring a long sleeved rash guard... the sun is intense! Most of the breaks are over coral reefs, so reef booties can be useful.
Seychelles has two seasons and these are wind seasons. The North-West Monsoon and the South-East Monsoon. The North-West Monsoon blows from Mid-October to Mid-May. The South-East Monsoon blows… Continue

excited! We flew from Minneapolis to Amsterdam and had 8 hours to spend

Western perceptions of African countries are shaped by the media focus on the events that take place within its borders.

In 2006 Hollywood highlighted the plight of the people in Sierra Leone by making the film Blood Diamond. This told the story… Continue
