Itinerary

Project Life - Seychelles

While living in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, your time will be spent rotating between a wide range of conservation efforts. Volunteers can expect to work from Monday to Friday with weekends free to explore the surrounding area. Volunteers will spend the majority of the time on foot, working in the forests and on the beaches, experiencing the different field techniques and varied project sites. At the end of each workday, you will return to base with the rest of your team to relax and get ready for another exciting but rewarding day. Accommodation will be shared dormitory style and duties such as cooking and cleaning will be shared amongst the volunteers on a rotational basis. On weekends you are encouraged to explore the nearby area and islands. Visit Praslin, home to the Valle de Mai (a world heritage site) thought by early explorers to be the original Garden of Eden, go snorkeling in the sparkling blue waters, relax on the beautiful beaches, trek through this tropical paradise alongside your fellow volunteers or visit Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles and catch up on some retail therapy.
