Spot rare birds among the unspoiled nature of Cousin, a small mass of granite rock encircled by a long sandy beach. Mangroves and freshwater swamps with indigenous plants cover this 34 hectare (84 acre) plateau, sheltering the rare Seychelles warbler, fody, magpie-robin, sunbird, blue pigeon, and Malagasy turtle dove, as well as the giant Aldabra tortoise. A former coconut plantation, the island was reforested in 1968 and today hosts over 300,000 nesting birds.

We had to wait for the return of the 2nd group before we joined our boat. If you want to try: long pants, long sleeves and hats with veils are to be expected because as soon as you enter the forest you are literally attacked from all sides by clouds of mosquitoes.
The beach is so clean and well maintained. Never give up on a once in a lifetime experience of seeing the different varieties of exotic birds. The bird reserve tour is a guided one and you get to see ... more »
