Beach and Lemur Explorer
From: $ 4,810.00 per person
This package combines the best of both worlds with breath-taking beaches and an abundance of unique wildlife on our Beach and Lemur Package. Be enchanted by the turquoise waters of Nosy Komba and meet lemurs up-close at Andasibe National Park. The secluded Mandrare River Camp, surrounded by the spiny forest and the fascinating Antandroy tribe, offers barefoot luxury and gives you an important insight into local culture.
Nosy Be – With an area of 321 sq km, Nosy Be is the largest of Madagascar’s offshore islands. It’s often billed in tourist brochures as the ‘Ile aux Parfums’ and like the nearby Comoros Islands, is a centre for the production of perfume essence from the Ylang-Ylang tree.
Andasibe – Enjoy both a day and night walk during your tour, allowing you to discover both the daily wildlife and the nocturnal animals of Madagascar. Your guide will also help you search for the Indri, the largest lemur on the island.
Nosy Komba – This volcanic island offers magnificent views from its 622- meter high peak.

Pre Tour Prep
When arriving in Nosy Be on Day 1 of the tour you will be picked up from the airport and will proceed with your tour. Should you arrive prior to day 1, or require accommodation in Antananarivo, we can arrange pre-tour accommodation for you if required.
Please note that Madagascar is a country which is in its infancy when it comes to tourism. Accommodation is limited so all the above-mentioned accommodation is subject to availability, and we reserve the right to change these using similar accommodation of the same standards.
Transport (Tana – Anasibe – Taba):
For 3 or less pax we use a Peugeot sedan car and for 4 or more pax we use a Mercedes Sprinter or similar sized vehicle. Should you require an air-conditioned vehicle, please note this may be at an additional cost, & must be requested at the time of enquiry.
A visa is required to enter the territory of Madagascar and can easily be obtained upon arrival at the airport of Antananarivo with a validity of up to 90 days. Tourists staying for less than one month, can purchase a visa for 80’000 Ariary (around 23-27 €). Paying with the exact amounts or small currency is advised. No photographs are required; however please ensure that passports are valid for at least 6 months after return date. In addition to the entry visa, the Malagasy government is proposing the introduction of a frontier levy of 10 € in the near future, still to be confirmed and variable at short notice.
