Mayotte Island will be part of the 2014 Carnaval International de Victoria in Seychelles

Mayotte Island will be part of the 2014 Carnaval International de Victoria in Seychelles ( Following the success of the 2013 edition of Carnaval International de Victoria, the representatives from the islands of Mayotte met with Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, to discuss and to confirm that Mayotte Island will be part of the Carnaval International de Victoria alongside Seychelles, La Reunion, Madagascar, Rodrigues, and hopefully Mauritius for the 4th edition of that Vanilla Islands Carnival in April, 2014.

The delegation expressed their appreciation to Seychelles, and commended the expertise and diligence of the organizers of this third edition of the Carnaval International de Victoria. The members of the Mayotte Island delegation said that they have been particularly touched by the recognition and acknowledgement of their presence in Victoria by the Minister Alain St.Ange during his speech at the official opening night of the carnival.

“The participation of Mayotte at the Carnaval International de Victoria is for us a win-win situation for both of our islands as it will enhance the visibility of our island as a tourist destination,” said the delegation from Mayotte.

In addition, the delegation recognizes that the Carnaval International de Victoria provides the ideal platform for the Vanilla Islands to show their solidarity and to work on common goals to promote this new concept of togetherness under the Vanilla Islands brand.

“We have never had access to so many press coming from everywhere. This is what Mayotte Island needs to increase its own visibility, and we will work with Seychelles to raise the profile of Mayotte as a member of the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands Organization,” the Mayotte Delegation said.

Seychelles Minister of Tourism and Culture, Mr. St.Ange, welcomed the support of Mayotte Island for the carnival, and he welcomed their decision to be present in force at the 4th edition of the carnival.

“The Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands Regional Organization have much tolerance for the cultural diversity of our islands and of our people. One of the most beautiful attractions of Mayotte is its beautiful coral reef which borders some of the largest lagoons. This is a haven housing a unique marine life. The lagoon is also a natural aquarium for marine life. Mayotte offers one of the best experiences for a whale watching, as well as several species of dolphins and sea turtles. These attractions are important assets for the islands of Mayotte and for the other Vanilla Islands Region,” Minister St.Ange stated.

The Minister and the delegation of Mayotte Island also expressed their desire to consolidate the working cooperation between Seychelles and Mayotte. A working group will be set up by each party to work on the feedback and recommendations of their Seychelles meeting.
