The Morne Seychellois National Park is situated on the island of Mahe, the largest island of the Seychelles archipelago. Morne Seychellois covers an area of approximately 3,045 hectares, more than 20% of Mahe and made up of a mixture of mangroves, lush tropical jungles and tall mountains. It is 10km in length and between 2km and 4km wide, equipped with an extensive trail network, covering more than 15km.

Morne Seychelles is home to a vast amount of indigenous flora and fauna, twelve endemic land birds of the granitics, seven of which are to be found on Mahe. These include the Seychelles Scops-owl, one of the most elusive species of all. Its stronghold is the Morne Seychellois National Park and it can often be heard around dusk at various locations along the Sans Souci road. The Seychelles Kestrel, Blue Pigeon and Sunbird are common sights in the park, which makes it perfect for bird lovers.  You will always be able to spot the endemic Bulbul, the Pitcher plant and have interesting encounters with the Seychelles wolf snake.

Morne Seychellois is one of the last places where relics from the 20thcentury can also be seen. These cultural sites where originally used for the exploitation of Cinnamon and coffee. These ruins of old distilleries and houses is the last link that the population has with its passed agricultural life before turning to a touristic destination.
