The weather in the Seychelles is good all year round, however the hottest months are December to April. During January & February scattered rain showers can be experienced but they are short-lived between clear skies. From May to October seasonal trade winds wash seaweed onto the beaches, especially on Mahe and Praslin. The best months to visit are June to September however in terms of SCUBA diving we recommend October / November and April / May as the water at this time of year has 30m+ visibility.
The Seychelles is known for its iridescent water and rich marine life. SCUBA diving is magnificent as is snorkeling, however the primary activities are lying horizontal on the soft sand or a hammock swaying in the breeze, with a good book and an ice cold cocktail. Africa&You can arrange island excursions, boat cruises and other all other activities to make your stay unforgettable.
We recommend combining a stay in the Seychelles with an African safari and flights can be arranged easily from Johannesburg, connecting easily with Kruger National Park, Victoria Falls and even the Okavango Delta.
