Denis Island Seychelles

Denis Island

Discover the tiny Seychelles Denis Island floating in the Indian Ocean like a tiny rock, completely separate and serene, and where adventurous holidays begin. Book your tropical Seychelles island holiday and stay a while to experience the magic of Denis Island. Explore this environmental utopia, fringed with pure white sands and swaying palm trees and become part of a unique environmental rehabilitation programme for endangered endemic species.

Like a beacon, a 1910 lighthouse still stands on the northern tip of the island and the old Chapel St. Denis broods in its own spot, an added attraction for visitors to this dreamy isle. In true tropical form, Denis Island boasts plentiful coconut palms, Takamaka and Casuarina trees. The island has been specified as a cay, in the Seychelles Archipelago – a small, low sandy island on the surface of a coral reef. 

Mixed Habitats Across Vast Wildlife Region

We love Kruger for its wildlife and breath-taking solitude in nature. It’s a veritable sanctuary for all thing living, mixed habitats hosting diverse wildlife in a vast region. What’s more, it treats visitors to upmarket infrastructure: good roads, supermarkets, fuel points, banks, restaurants and cafes. Explore the entire park over a week if you will, from north to south and back again and see something exciting around every corner. From the tiniest ants and lizards to the hugest rhinos, hippos, crocs and elephants – pushing trees over in your path. 

Follow lions on a hunt at dawn and follow leopards prowling at dusk. Kruger is your way to safari, independent in your own self-drive way or with friends on holiday with a luxury outfit that takes visitors out game driving twice day and treats them to all things decadent, yet wild at the same time. We promote value and delight in our Kruger National Park accommodation and safari packages!

Did you know?

Denis Island is 60 km north of Mahé main island on the northern edge of the Seychelles bank, near Bird Island, the northernmost Seychelles isle and stretches only 1.4 square km. It’s a tiny coral island named after the French Navy officer, Denis de Trobriand, who explored it in 1773 but today it is privately owned with a short airstrip and a unique holiday resort featuring 23 guest chalets.

Conservation and Sustainability Goals on Denis Island

Denis Island believes in sustainability and sustainable tourism and does its best to reduce, reuse and recycle all waste and use the soil and sun and water of the island. To this end, the island’s farm provides milk, yoghurt and cheese from cows, fresh pork and chicken, eggs, fresh fish and healthy organic fruits and vegetables!

Denis Island is a birder’s paradise – in 2004, 47 Seychelles fodies from Fregate Island and 58 Seychelles brush warblers from Cousin Island were relocated to Denis as part of a Nature Seychelles conservation project. Also relocated to Denis Island were the Seychelles Magpie Robin and 23 Paradise Flycatchers (previously only found on La Digue Island) to join the Seychelles Blue Pigeon – all by 2008. 

Conservation goals and ecosystem management keep the owners of Denis Island, Kathy and Micky Mason, busy as they ensure that Denis Island is one of the key biodiversity hotspots in the Seychelles Archipelago. Some of the work involves removing the many coconut palm trees and replacing them with indigenous trees. Thanks to their commitment, the Green Islands Foundation was initiated, an NGO that manages a few Seychelles conservation programmes. The sea around the island is a protected area for the Hawksbill and Green turtles that return each year to lay their eggs on the shores.
