Short trek to the viewing lodge which gives good views along the coast line. Several interesting trees and plants enroute together with ruins of Venn town which was a mission for the children of liberated slaves. Free entry and worth considering if in the area.

We were doing a geocaching trip along the Sans Souci road and stopped in here to find a cache as well as read up the interesting information about the history of the Mission. Particularly interesting if you work in Education. The view was an additional bonus. Although really just a couple of small ruins, the image of a working school... More

This is a beautiful place, is up in the mountains and it used to be the school for slaves kids. Is just beautiful you are surrounded by a jungle forest. With a beautiful view of the see. Worth going

interesting unexpected piece of history linking British culture to the Seychelles. Ruins of a village queen Victoria set up for the slave children when she visited the island years ago. they are trying to get this unnesco status and I believe it deserves that.

An interesting drive to get here and the parking is interesting. To see some of the trees as they really grow was very interesting. The ruins were not really interesting.

One of the best views on Mahe! It was pleasant and not cold when we visited (around 1 PM in May). We're lucky to have a local who pointed out the cinnamon trees (even broke some bark for us) and other local plants. The history behind the place is also very interesting.

Arriving by coach after recent rains, the going was rough underfoot with slippery steps, exposed tree roots and mud. However, there is a history to the place. Look up at the massive trees with wide girths. The viewpoint is impressive and it is cool amongst the foliage. Small souvenir stall at the lookout. The drive up Sans Souci road is... More

Even the drive up Sans Souci is amazing as the light through the foliage is stunning. There are some impressive trees on the pathway which leads to a spectacular view of the ocean and beaches below.
