Seychelles Sights

Veuve Nature Reserve

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 12/03/2014

Fodor's Review

La Digue is the last refuge of the rare black paradise flycatcher, of which there are only about 100 still in existence. Once on the brink of extinction, these rare birds, which the locals call the veuve, or widow, are now protected in this reserve, which is also home to two extremely rare species of terrapin. The Veuve Information Centre is also La Digue's only environment office, managing the Reserve, and providing the majority of information on the island's unique flora and fauna. Staff there can take visitors on short guided tours upon request, but arangements must be made in advance.
