Raffles Praslin, Seychelles has created an exclusive “Ranger for a Day” experience, where guests spend a day with a park ranger on the neighboring island of Curieuse immersed in environmental conservation activities.
This rare ‘behind the scenes’ visit includes access to areas that are normally off limits and home to hundreds of giant tortoises, tropical birds, turtles, lush green mangroves, Coco de Mer palms, giant Takamaka trees, and other endemic flora and fauna species to be found only in Seychelles, or on the island. The activities are conducted in partnership with the Seychelles National Parks Authority (SNPA) and engage guests with the local environment, through unique hands-on experiences and interaction with the natural elements.
The resort is also launching a “Mini Ranger” program, accessible for kids from 7 to 12 years old. The half day experience on Curieuse island includes interaction with tortoises, tree planting at the nursery, and nature walk with Raffles Ranger, sharing its knowledge about the local environment, in a fun and educational way.
“Ranger for a Day” is a non-profit progam developed by Raffles Praslin, Seychelles, in collaboration with SNPA, and the funds collected from the activity, priced at AUD263 per person*, will be donated to SNPA, to help the organisation in its mission to protect the local environment.
