Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden Tours

Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden
High in the hills above Anse Royal, visitors enjoy the sights and smells of the Seychelles in the fragrant gardens of Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden. Wander the aromatic grounds filled with herbs, spices, and medicinal plants and marvel over endemic giant tortoises, before visiting the small planter’s house museum to learn more.
 
The Basics

Privately owned Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden is an 86-acre (35-hectare) haven of rare and fragrant fauna, which you can explore at your own pace. Embark on self-guided nature walks, searching for and identifying specific plants independently, using the map and plant list provided. Then, have lunch at the onsite restaurant and enjoy privileged views over the island. With so much to see and do, save time and buy your admission tickets in advance.
 
Things to Know Before You Go

  • Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden especially charms botanists and nature lovers.
  • Expect to spend up to three hours exploring Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden.
  • Have lunch at the on-site cafe-restaurant, and take home jams, marmalades, and spices from the souvenir store.

How to Get There
La Jardin du Roi Spice Garden sits above Anse Royale at the end of a steep and narrow road. Most visitors find it easiest to arrive by car, and there is on-site parking. However, adventurous travelers can tackle the roughly 1.3-mile (2-kilometer) uphill walk themselves.
 
When to Get There

Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden is open daily. An a la carte lunch is served daily except for Sunday when the special prix-fixe Plantation Lunches are held from 12pm–3pm. If you plan to walk to Le Jardin du Roi, leave in the morning before the sun reaches its peak. Similarly, this lets you to beat the crowds and midday heat in the gardens.
 
What to Do on Mahé

Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden may be one of Mahé’s most popular attractions, but there’s more to experience on the island. Beach lovers in particular have ample options for sunbathing and swimming—those pressed for time head to the nearby Anse Royale beach. Meanwhile, tea aficionados won’t want to miss the opportunity to tour the Tea Factory.

Francois has been doing the tour for 20 years, is Seychellois and grew up on the island. He speaks German, is very funny and shows you places that not everyone knows. It is worth it in any case.

An island tour around Mahé is a real MUST. Only then you can see how beautiful Mahé is and that the (main) island of the Seychelles does not have to hide from any other island (Praslin or La Digue). The mentioned sights / arrival points are only a few options. In reality you will see a lot more on this island tour than we can describe. We know the Seychelles as Seychellois, we are very flexible with your wishes, we are happy to deal with everything you want to see and discover. We speak German, English and French. Incidentally, our company is licensed and insured, certified by the tourism authority and licensed by the government.

But we have to give in to the fact that we have to call it extra. We look forward to you, that's what matters.
