The Seychelles ~ Tropical Paradise 6th – 17th July 2008

  • Bird Island is absolutely amazing. That rare sort of place where there is no need for a watch, shoes or a telescope, as the birds are so have to swat the Barred Ground Doves off the breakfast table if you want any toast and marmalade left!..Chris Hall reports.

Seychelles June 4th till June 17th  2002

  • Between June 3rd and June 17th 2002 I went to the Seychelles for a holiday. I was there with my girlfriend Marieke Wiringa plus our daughter Joop. Our main objective was to have a nice pleasant holiday, but also on the agenda was to see all island endemics plus some photographing. We managed to have it all!....Jan van der Laan reports.
