      East Coast Road Conditions

      Madagascar Mar 21, 2014 at 10:19 AM

      My family and I are due to go to Madagascar in August for 16 days. We are intending initially travelling south on the RN7 to Antsirabe and then onto Ranomafana area. We want to go back north to Anasibe and the cost, but don’t really want to retrace our path on the RN7.
      The only other option appears to be the RN45/RN25/RN11, does anyone have any experience of this route? We will be driving ourselves.

      Thank you

      Contact Details for Kirindy Private Reserve

      Madagascar 5 hours ago

      I have read a lot of good things about Kirindy Private Reserve, we are currently intending going there when we visit Madagascar later in the year.

      Has anyone on here visited Kirindy and has any information/advise?

      I would specifically like some contact details as I can't find any on the internet.

      Thank you

      Does anyone know if you can see Verreaux Sifakas 'dancing' (crossing open areas) in Nahampoana, or do you have to go to Berenty to see them?

      Driving from Tana to Tsingy de Bemaraha

      Madagascar Apr 14, 2014 at 12:49 PM

      Can anyone tell me how long it takes to drive from Tana to Tsingy de Bemaraha National park via RN1 turning at Tsiroanomandidy? I have read that some of the route from there to Bekopaka is quite poor, but not how long the journey is. The National Park website does state this as a possible option for getting there.... It seems to be about half the distance of going via Morondava.

      Thanks for any advise


    • sea crossings in July

      Madagascar Apr 7, 2014 at 8:25 PM

      I will be travelling with a friend in July.

      1. We will be in Nosy Be and wanting to go to the area of Diego Suarez. Does anyone have any experience of sea conditions at that time of year? I understand that if we want to go overland we can go by boat to Ankify but it could be a dangerous crossing, and the other alternative is to fly but there is no direct flight – is that correct?
      2. We also want to go from Tamatave to Isle Sainte Marie, but we heard that you can go by boat but that can also be a dangerous crossing. Any comments?

      Is there a waterfall on Nosy Mangabe?

      I'm writing a novel based on the island and because I've  never been I'm dying to know.  I've seen pictures pop up when I've googled Nosy Mangabe and just wondered if it was true.

      Lemurs on Ile St Marie

      Nosy Sainte Marie Apr 8, 2012 at 2:21 PM

      My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon to Madagascar and was looking at Princesse Bora Lodge. It is very important for me to see Lemurs and as I understand Ile St Marie is not really the place for it. Could anyone advice a day trip from the island to somewhere where you can see a large amount of lemurs? Any tour operators that you can book with on the island or any advice?

      Many thanks!

      Nosy Sainte Marie Mar 27, 2011 at 8:42 AM

      My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon to Madagascar and came across La Petite Traversee as an option. It looks amazing! Paradise, good for active people, beautiful water and beaches and we'll get to see a lemur! We're not looking for five star accomodation, but clean and neat is essential and we are only concerned about one thing, privacy. Obviously being on honeymoon we would like some privacy, but are not anti-social types. Just wanting some advice from those who have been to La Petite Traversee as to the amount of privacy a honeymoon couple could expect? Many thanks.

      We will be in port for a few hours only, and always prefer to do our own thing. Is the cruise terminal within short walking distance of the town please?
