The Seychelles Tourism Board continue to promote and market Seychelles in Africa, as an “exotic” island holiday destination for the African corporate & leisure travelers, as well as the international travelers to Africa.

The Tourism Industry in Seychelles in general is conscious of the fact that the African Corporate & Leisure Market is an extremely important and attractive source market for Seychelles, given the continents’ proximity to Seychelles, wealth available, Air Access and the sheer size of the African consumer segment.

The Seychelles Tourism Board marketing strategy in Africa is aimed at the leisure & corporate travelers of those countries, the expatriate community as well as the international visitors to those countries, and as tourism to Eastern and Southern Africa continue to grow, we remain optimistic that Seychelles will continue to benefit from its tourism marketing activities and programs involving those African countries,
Seychelles conduct ongoing marketing activities in Kenya, Ethiopia, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and South Africa being the largest source market in Africa.

For international visitors to those African countries, Seychelles offer twin-center packages, the (Safari / beach) combination, a safari in Africa and thereafter to the beaches and unique attractions of the Seychelles, a very popular program for the European & American travelers to Africa.
