  • 45 minutes of canoes to arrive at the reserve of Lokobé and after the visitor takes full eyes. Long clothing and anti-mosquito spray needed to enjoy wildlife.

  • Exceptional excursion made with the Mada in travel. We arrived at the beach starting point for the reserve with motor pirogue, no fatigue! The beach from which we left for the reserve is managed by a Tuscan couple, in Madagascar for 28 years, they welcomed us, pampered and refreshed with excellent Malagasy food. There is even the possibility to sleep on site, in cozy huts facing the beach with the possibility of night excursions in the forest to see the night lemurs in activity. Very good The local guide that accompanied us along the way in the primary forest of Lokobe: with precise glance, attentive ear and nose by hound led us to discover all kinds of animal, flower and tree with great respect for the environment and meticulous Be careful not to disturb the inhabitants of the forest. Suitable for anyone not afraid to walk for a couple of hours but certainly to do with the accompaniment of a guide. Necessary sneakers and trousers not too short. Experience not to be missed during a holiday in Nosy Be
