East Madagascar

Forests, Beaches & Whales


Despite the general lack of transport infrastructure in Madagascar it is definitely worth traveling to the East. Here you will find lush tropical rain forests filled with leaping lemurs and chirping birds in the Mantadia National Park. Near Indri-Indris in the park are found some of the largest lemurs in Madagascar. Over 600 kilometres in length the Pangalese Canal network connects all the lakes and stretches from Brickaville to Tamatave and is fantastic to explore. The East Coast of Madagascar is also one of the best places to go whale watching at the right time of the year. Choose to stay in luxury on Sainte Marie island or in simple rustic retreats within the forests and along the coast.

You can get to the East Coast from Antanarivo, there are some roads leading to the coast especially to Tamatave and once there you can travel by road or even on the Pangalese Canal. Further North, you can fly to the airport at Ankarenar, this is the easiest and quickest way to get to Sainte Marie island.

Madagascar is slowly developing a luxury travel industry, so the pick of luxury hotels is still slim, but those that are around are certainly worth the trip. Consider the amazing Princess Bora hotel on the island of Sainte Marie, which has a fantastic location and is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday. 

In this southern region, there are various rustic lodges, jungle retreats and coastal resorts. The coastal town of Tamatave is a popular spot for visitors and one must not forget the national parks in the area.
