Les îles de la Grande Île

SAKALAVA DOW TRIP – 4 JOURS

Villages lost along isolated beaches or in the mangroves on the Grande Terre, opposite Nosy Be. You will share the life of the Sakalava fishermen on the side of the Russian Bay of Nosy Iranja and towards the Radama archipelago for several days.

On board of a traditional pirogue with sail or a beautiful dhow, you don’t need anything.

We offer you an incredible journey to discover a people, a culture, a rhythm of life. An invitation to forget everything, to leave everything behind.

COMFORT HIKING IN THE NORTH – 12 DAYS

These “COMFORT HIKING” trips allow you to go hiking on the main spots of Madagascar without having to sleep in a tent. All nights are at the hotel near the sites visited.

To visit Diego-Suarez is to discover a unique concentration of Yemeni, Somali, Chinese, Indian and Bantu origins. We hike in the freshness of the Montagne d’Ambre national park, populated by lemurs, birds, butterflies…

The walk to the 3 Bays is a delight. We walk on the beach until we arrive at Cap Miné with a view of the Emerald Sea. The Tsingy Rouge at the foot of the eroded canyons contrast with the surprising geological formations of the Ankarana National Park and the discovery of Malagasy rural life on the banks of the Sambirano River.

For our last stopover, we land in the enchanting setting of Nosy Be, the Island of Perfumes.

© Malagasy Tours | Carte

The principle of our “Slow Travel” is simple, it’s about traveling while taking the time to do things, to see people, to understand their daily lives. This approach to Madagascar is intended to be intimate and gentle.

The encounter with the Indri-indri, the largest of the lemurs, in the Perinet reserve is always a moving moment. The local guide will tell us about his customs and his legend. On the Canal des Pangalanes, we stroll through the villages and discover the way of life of the fishermen, between lagoons and ocean.

The charming little island of Ste Marie invites us to beautiful walks along the beaches or by bicycle going up towards the north or towards the east coast.

CRUISE IN NOSY BE – 6 DAYS

When we talk about sailing in Madagascar, we are talking about something almost confidential!

However, our “playground”, around Nosy Be, is simply wonderful. The winds are light, the sea is gentle, the sun is friendly and the environment is dreamy.

Southward to the extraordinary Moramba Bay with its famous Tsingy, passing by the archipelago of Radama and the island of Nosy Lava, the former prison of Madagascar. Nosy Iranja and its famous beaches. Or towards the North, the archipelago of Mitsio with its basaltic organs and higher the Cape St Sebastien and still further North the superb islands of Nosy Hara. Our possibilities are vast and rich.

The timing of the cruise below is an example. Like all our trips, we will treat your cruise according to your wishes. Of course, the timing remains subject to weather conditions and the final decisions to the expertise of the skipper.
