Seychelles is a sought-after destination for travellers from Africa, and more specifically for travellers from Western African countries such as Ghana and Nigeria, whose travellers consider Seychelles as a wonderful “Exotic Island Holiday Destination” for weddings and honeymoon. Travellers from those countries like to venture on nature trails, hiking, snorkelling, diving, sailing, are keen to meet the local population and participate in cultural activities whilst on holiday, and Seychelles has all this to offer, and much more.

Air access is available from most West African countries to Seychelles, with Kenya Airways and Ethiopian Airlines with good connections via their hubs onward to the Seychelles.
