    • Epic Road

      Giant Tortoises - The famous Aldabra Giant Tortoise is native only to the Seychelles. On many of the islands, these giants roam free. Topping out at an astonishing 660 pounds, these gentle vegetarians are just begging for an afternoon snack of leaves which they are more than happy to eat right from your hands.


      The giant tortoises now seen on Mauritius are all derived from grandparent stock imported from the Seychelles in the 1880s, following the recommendation of Charles Darwin.
