168305_num699628_600x600The best holidays are the ones which will leave you with memories that will last for the rest of your life.

Easter in the Seychelles certainly fits the bill. Most people know of the Seychelles as a tropical island paradise, and imagine themselves enjoying the tranquillity of hidden coves and private beaches. But there is another, more untamed side to the Seychelles.

At Easter time, the Island’s capital, Victoria comes alive with the sounds and tastes and colour of, the Seychelles Carnival, the Carnaval International de Victoria Seychelles. Who needs to go to Rio or New Orleans when you can experience the mardi gras of a lifetime, right on our doorstep?

This year KwaZulu-Natal South Africa, is using the carnival season to cement its special ties with the Seychelles and is acting as co-host of the event. The Master of Ceremonies for the event will be Sewende Laan star Angelique Gerber. 168305_num699627

Angelique has the added bonus of being a guest on Eden Island while she is in Seychelles. Eden Island is separated from Mahé by a narrow channel of water and linked by a bridge but she’ll enjoy a gloriously tranquil contrast to the pace of the Carnaval, as she relaxes on the large verandas of her Eden Island home overlooking the azure of Seychelles waters.

Justin Arenhold, Head of Eden Island’s Rental Pool, has good news for those wanting to share Angelique’s experience.

“We have over 150 properties in the rental pool and there are still some vacancies for people who would like to book a home now for  Carnaval and Easter,” he says.

“They have access to all the amenities Seychelles offers, but our guests find that they can easily be occupied on Eden Island itself for three days or more,” Justin says. “Besides Carnaval, there are so many leisure activities available on our doorstep, from the private beaches to diving, fishing and other water activities. All the facilities for a really special getaway are on Eden Island itself.”
