Driving in the Seychelles-
You can drive on your home licence for 3 months from most countries. Roads are generally in good condition, but Mahe is mountainous and roads are steep, narrow and winding. Lighting is rare in rural areas so avoid driving at night where the geographical challenges are made worse by the potential for pedestrians and animals in the road. Crime in general is not usually a problem in The Seychelles but car crime can be an issue in popular tourist places such as Beau Vallon and Victoria. Do not leave valuables visible in cars when driving abroad here.
