  Botanical Garden
by Muya

Build in 1901, this 5 acres park located in Mont Fleuri, on the outskirts of Victoria, houses various endemic species of plants as well as other exotic species brought to the Seychelles by its founder, who used to bring back trees and plants from its travels. It is one of the only places on Mahé where you can see the Coco de Mer tree, only growing in the Vallée de Mai on Praslin Island.
Fruit bats,in the trees high above your head, and giant turtles of Aldabra also live in the park.
If you are hungry, you can eat excellent sandwiches in the little cafeteria in the middle of the park.

Open every day from 6 to 6, entrance 25 rupees
