Nosy Mamoko is one of the islands in the Ambariotelo archipelago, north of Madagascar.

My suggestion:
Take time to discover the inland areas.

This island rarely visited by tourists contains amazing riches, including the location's oldest inhabitants, the century-old land tortoises that move about quietly in a magnificent setting. In addition to these giants, Nosy Mamoko is also home to many lemurs, birds and reptiles who share this little island with the nomadic fishermen who live there.

Nosy Mamoko is a former Arab trading post. Today, the island is a sacred site where the inhabitants, the Sakalava ethnic group, are the guardians of ancestral traditions. Inland walks allow you to discover lush flora and a beautiful waterfall where you can take a refreshing dip. It's possible to reach Nosy Mamoko by sailboat, catamaran or even a traditional canoe. What will you choose for this relaxing getaway?
