may/June next year from there. Thought about maybe heading back to Chagos
then to the Maldives
, come January head
up the red sea but the pirate thing has become a little active again this year.... Just trying to think of options.
i would stay in seychells if you can find a safe place to leave the boat
and fly to kenya or tanzania,most of the good stuff to see is away from the coast.
there used to be reasonably cheap
flights daily,then come april may head south to mayotte and mada,with the intention of getting to SA in october and cape town
around xmas. to hop off for carib in jan.
otherwise april may is the time to head north from tanzania or seychelles for red sea.
