Today we will drive to the amazing Ankarana Park, south of Diego Suarez. We walk through the limestone massif viewing the awe-inspiring karst of the 'Little Tsingy'. We will explore the "bat" cave which is home to a diverse array of bats and birds we also search for lemurs. Relax and put your feet up at your evening camp in a lovely natural setting.
This morning we will drive to the tropical port at Ankify, passing through coffee and cocoa plantations and the rustic village of Ambilobe. You will cross the crystal blue waters on a short motorboat ride (approx 1 hr) leading to Nosy Be, also known as Nosy Manitra - "The Scented Island". A soothing blend of frangipani, Ylang Ylang, vanilla and cinnamon scents are carried on the gentle breeze which brings a unique peace to the island. Being one of Madagascar's most popular destinations, Nosy Be offers visitors the chance to relax on the beautiful beaches, be adventurous and be blessed with some panoramic views from the peak of Mont Passot, experience the vibrant underwater world by snorkeling or scuba diving or just go with the flow of island life.
Enjoy taking in the tropical paradise at leisure for the next two days. Excursions are offered to the smaller surrounding islands off Nosy Be, such as Nosy Komba with a chance to view the endemic black lemurs, and Nosy Tanikely which has exceptional snorkeling and scuba diving. A spice tour can be arranged or perhaps a ride into Hell-ville to visit the bustling daily market - a great place to pick up spices. (Be sure to check your home country's quarantine laws if you intend to take any spices away with you.) Sip a sundowner at the tiny rustic bar at the top of Mont Passot, taking in the breathtaking view of the seven sacred crater lakes. Or enjoy a sail upon a catamaran under the radiant Madagascan sun. Fishing and diving trips can also be arranged, or just simply enjoy a cocktail on the beach admiring the hues of the sunset.
