Travel to the exotic island nation of Seychelles—an in-depth profile by The Bespoke African Safari Co.

The islands of the archipelago span a large region near the meeting point of Asia and Africa. The main islands can be found about 1,700 kilometers (1,000 miles) east of the African coast and 500 kilometers (300 miles) south of the equator.

Seychelles is without a doubt one of the world’s most stunning tropical island getaways. Located northeast of Madagascar in the western Indian Ocean, the archipelago comprises about 115 individual islands and has a combined total area of more than 1 million km2.

The entire country is roughly the size of Andorra (444 km2), or 2.5 times the size of Washington, DC.
