Northern Madagascar

5 to 15 days journey.

Diego-Suarez, or Antsiranana for locals is located near the far northern tip of Madagascar. It lies on one of the world’s largest bays, and because of its natural defensive structure, was an important French naval base in the late nineteenth century. If you are looking for good beach weather in Madagascar, this is a good choice. There are seven months of dry weather in “Diego”, and it is often sunny even when there are cyclones in other parts of the island! Despite its small size, Diego-Suarez is quite cosmopolitan due to its port. A diverse mix of people lives here, maintaining a fun-loving lifestyle that makes Diego one of the party capitals of Madagascar! This is the starting point of most of our northern excursions, which usually include Amber Mountain NP, Ankarana NP, the Emerald Sea, the Three Bays, and through to Nosy Be via Ambanja plantations.
