What we will do
- Having taken the ship's tender to the dock of Nosy Be, we take a short trip on small local boats to board a catamaran, heading straight for the archipelago to the south of Nosy Be.
- We sail towards Nosy Komba where we find a small village with an evocative market of hand-made items. Having crossed the village, it's a pleasant walk to the lemur park. These graceful animals are a very rare species of primate, present in the wild only in Madagascar and the Comoros Islands. In the park we'll have the opportunity to admire some captive examples of the chameleons, boa constrictors and tortoises that populate the island.
- With a pang of nostalgia and an overwhelming desire to return, we leave Nosy Komba to head towards the fabulous atoll of Petit Iranja, a crescent of white coral sand and black volcanic rock that rises out of the crystal-clear waters at low tide. We stop here for a relaxing visit to stroll along the beach, plunge into the crystal-clear water for a relaxing swim, discover the rich coral reef and be inspired to take beautiful photos to immortalize this wild paradise.
- Our last stop will be Nosy Vorona, a tiny remote island where we can enjoy a local tasty lunch.
