We will start this tour at 8am by heading to Mahatsinjo village. The enormous ‘banyan sacred tree is located here, which was planted by the Queen of Sakalava tribe back in 1836. Nowadays, the Queen of Nosy Be makes an annual pilgrimage to sacrifice a zebu by the tree in order to gain benediction. Shoes must be removed before approaching the tree, and if you have bare legs, a wrap will be provided. Black lemurs play in the branches, making great photo opportunities.
This spacious and lovely park, covering an area of 8 hectares, is teaming with freely moving lemurs that you can feed bananas. There are a few different species of lemurs to see, as well as other types of animals like crocodiles, chameleons, tortoises and birds and many more, including the Ylang Ylang plantations and distillery where we can also get to tour the perfume factory and rum distillery.
After a good time at the Lemur Land Park, we will go to visit the Hell Ville market which is the best place in Nosy Be for shopping. The broderies are beautiful and not expensive and the local art is very variated. You can buy your vanilla and all kind of pepper and other spices here too. It is safe here and a good way to have contact with the local way of lives, so don’t hesitate to bargain!
Time to have lunch on a beautiful beach. Andilana is considered the best beach of Nosy Be with its long stretch of pearly white sand, with water that’s true turquoise and as clear as gin.
Mont Passot is the must-see mountain of Nosy Be. It is the highest viewpoint of the island where you can enjoy a 360 degree view of Nosy Be, the Indian Ocean and some of the island’s twelve volcanic lakes. And the most beautiful moment is watching the spectacular sunset, when the sky takes on a range of colours from orange to pink, fuchsia, to red and blue. We’ll head back to the hotel after the sunset and that’s the end of the tour.
