Photo and caption by Angela Reichenbach

One of the Seychelles Islands called Praslin preserves an amazing palm forest largely unchanged since prehistoric times. There you find the famous „coco de mer“ (Lodoicea maldivica), from a palm-tree once believed to grow in the depths of the sea, which is the largest seed in the plant kingdom. A place of giants also enjoyed by the couple in the right corner of the image.

Location: Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, Praslin Island, Seychelles
