Seychelles Parks and Gardens Authority is delighted to announce the completion of  renovation works on a bridge in the Botanical Gardens, following a generous donation  from Travizory Border Security. 

The small bridge is situated to the southwest side of the Botanical Gardens, offering  much-needed access to the visitors’ facilities within the Gardens. Built quite some years  back, the bridge was deemed as a hazard, following several broken planks and its  unsteadiness. Combined with obvious aging and wear-and-tear the renovation of the  heavily-used bridge was a priority. Thanks to the donation from Travizory Border  Security, the bridge has now been fully restored and provides safe access to visitor  facilities in the Gardens. 

“The Botanical  Gardens is undoubtedly a must-see for all visitors to Seychelles, so the maintenance of  the grounds is a priority for us at SPGA. The infrastructure of the Garden, from signage  to footpaths and bridges, plays a vital role in creating a peaceful and engaging  environment, so we are grateful for the contribution from Travizory to support our  renovation works.”

Allen Cedras, CEO, Seychelles Parks and Gardens Authority

We are delighted  to be able to work with SPGA and offer funding for such a simple, but important project  that will ensure a pleasant experience for visitors to the Gardens. Starting with a  seamless digital arrival experience, Seychelles is committed to being a world-class  destination for all of its visitors and projects like this give Travizory the opportunity to  contribute to an unforgettable experience in-country.”
