Seychelles & Johannesburg

seychelles_joburg

The archipelago 115 island country of the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean has teamed up with the South African Johannesburg Tourism Company to offer visitors a dual destination package.  Johannesburg is rich in culture and heritage and is Africas shopping Mecca, and also offers the “big five” game animals in its national parks.

The Seychelles is Africas smallest nation with spectacular beaches, granitic and coral islands with cliff, wreck and open dives.  There is no industry to pollute the waters so the clarity is amazing.  Whale sharks and small fish, turtles and living corals all live in these warm waters.
