Welcome to Morne Seychellois National Park

Morne Seychellois National Park

The largest national park in the Seychelles, Morne Seychellois National Park takes up over 20 percent of the area of Mahé. The park is made up of a number of habitats and ecosystems ranging from coastal mangrove forests to misty mountain peaks, and contains no settlements (although you can find the ruins of old cinnamon distilleries). Dominating the landscape is Morne Seychellois, the highest peak on the island at 2,970 feet (905m). Morne Seychellois National Park has a network of 12 well-marked hiking trails covering more than 9.3 miles (15km). Maps and other information are available in Victoria.

Information & Facts

Creole, English and French are all spoken in the Seychelles.

The Seychelles currency is the Rupee (SCR), divided into 100 cents. The country's foreign exchange regulations require visitors to pay for all services provided by hotels, guesthouses and self-catering enterprises, as well as things like car hire, entrance fees to parks and reserves, scuba diving and boat charter, in major foreign currency notes (Euros are the most widely used) or by credit card. Taxis and restaurant bills (not connected to hotels) are payable in foreign or Seychelles Rupees. Rupees can only be used in local shops, markets, and bars. Credit cards are widely welcomed throughout the Seychelles. Money can be exchanged at banks and the airport on Mahé, or at hotels, and banks process travellers cheques. To change Rupees back into foreign currency on departure requires the official receipt from the initial transaction. ATMs are available at major banks on Mahé, Praslin and La Digue.
