A good site for tours from Nosy Be?

I have researched quite a few which show all the usual islands that we will be visiting. I am looking more for trips to places a little further afield but still doable in a day? Would love to visit Amber Mountain (I think!) Our time is very limited but we would like a mix of water wildlife, and forest wildlife. The bit that's missing is the landscapes/villages and perhaps more unusual creatures only found in specific parts. With a view to photograph.

We have accommodation on Nosy Be in 2 places, one Zara Village, near Lokobe, the other La Sakalava. 4 days here, 2 in Zara Village.

Any advice, suggestions will be most welcome. We are a party of 4. Our budget is mid range...100euro pp a day but will depend on experiences. More for great guide.

Amber mountain is too far for a day tour from Nosy Be, the nearest is Ankarana national park but still, you need to overnight there as it is 3 hours journey from Nosy Be. I would suggest cancel one night hotel in Nosy Be and book an hotel for one night at Ankarana. You could arrange a speed boat and car with a local tour agent or guides in Nosy Be. I do reccommend Nosy Be Exposure at nosybeexposure@gmail.com

Ankarana is known for its limestone karst pinnacles called Tsingy along with its extensive cave system and network of underground rivers. Dry deciduous forest is found in much of the reserve. Visitors may encounter the crowned lemur, Sanford's brown lemur, Perrier's black lemur, the northern sportive lemur and dwarf lemurs. A variety of chameleons and leaf-tailed Uroplatus geckos can also be found in the reserve.

This reserve contains one of the highest density of primates of any forest in the world. Its dense forests support one of the largest and least disturbed populations of crowned lemurs.

I can really recommend a local tour guy who did us a personalised trip for a really great price! Hes an incredible man and works his butt off to support his family!! He literally factored everything we wanted into our trip, and completely worked around us! We became really great friends. He provided a fantastic car and driver, organised all our accommodation etc and happily gave advice on things we were doing when we left him! His name is Enock- contact him via facebook…. search 'mananjara enock'

You will not be disappointed! xxx

Hi,

Thanks, but I'm not looking for someone to take us all on a tour for the time we are there. Sorry I wasn't clear, I just meant a tour operator based on the island who we could organise half day, whole day trips, possibly one overnight...we like the look of the one staying overnight in a tent on the beach!

I will still bear in mind the person you suggested as we may have time to do one tour that involves more than a day trip.

Hi,

We (myself and partner) are looking to do a trip to the Ankarana Reserve (approximately 2 nights) to do all hikes and exploring.

We want accomodation and transport etc. Is this something he can help with and what trips did he help you with?

Also are there a lot of tour operators on nosey be?

Many thanks :)

There are lots of operators on Nosy Be, I highly recommend either Nosy Be Original on Nosy Be, or, MadaBest from Diego can come get you and show you Ankarana.
