Visit a tropical oasis in the outskirts of the capital at Seychelles National Botanical Gardens, teeming with rare and endemic plant life. Established over a century ago, the gardens stand as one of the oldest national treasures of the Seychelles, extending across 2 hectares (5 acres) of undisturbed flourishing plant species. Walk beneath the shady canopies of rare palms, observe the spice and fruit trees, and snap photos of the vibrant palette of native orchids. Keep an eye out for the gardens' Aldabra giant tortoises, which can live up to 150 years. A convenient cafe offers welcome refreshment amidst rainforest scenery.

Especially plants like the Coco of the Mer, which grows only on Praslin. At just under €7, a fair entrance fee and absolutely worthwhile.
I like this garden. The turtles experience was amazing for me. You can go inside and feed the turtles for additional 50 rupees. The whole garden is well maintained and very colourful. Recommended !
The garden is nice, many different plants there. However, make sure you have Mosquito repellent applied - this is the only place in Seychelles where we got bitten. Also, the garden is on the slope, walking up the hill in hot humid weather may be not so pleasant. The garden is quite small, it took us about 2 hours to visit it.
