Located on Madagascar’s eastern coast, Ankanin’ny Nofy will not disappoint. Nestled on lake Ampitabe, the simplest way to get there is to sail down the Canal des Pangalanes from Toamasina by scow. You can also rent a motorised canoe.


The must see of Ankanin’ny Nofy is the palm grove. This private reserve is housed on a peninsula of 86 acres. The reserve contains more than 100 000 species of palm trees, some of which are rare and endemic. The palm grove is also rich in orchids, acacias and carnivore plants.

As you will notice is often the case during your stay in Madagascar , the reserve is proud to play host to about ten species of lemur who choose to live there. In particular, the Indri Indri, the largest lemur on the planet, the Propithecus that loves to stand upright, or the Aye Aye, an endangered species.
