When to go
Ambohikarivo shares the same tropical climate as Fénérive-Est. Rainfall is heavy throughout the year (a slight drop in October). The temperature averages around 26°C.
How to get there
To get to Fénérive-Est, take the RN2 to Tamatave then follow the RN5. Fénérive-Est is 100km north of the capital Betsimisaraka. The village of Ambohikarivo is 4km from the city. Walk for 1h15 or drive 20 minutes by off-roader.
Where to stay
There is no hotel structure in Ambohikarivo. For accommodation, return to the town of Fénérive-Est and drop by the Oasis Lodge or Sahorana Lodge, which we recommend. Most of the accommodation infrastructure is situated in Mahambo, a tourist town a few kilometres from Fénérive-Est on the way to Tamatave (Hotel La Pirogue or Hotel Hibiscus). To fully enjoy the calm of the east coast, opt for a night in Foulpointe. There is no shortage of places to stay here. The Azura Resort &Spa and the Hotel La Cigale are particularly noteworthy. If you decide to head directly back to Tamatave after visiting Fénérive-Est, book your rooms at the Calypso Hotel & Spa, the Sharon Hotel and the Sunny Hotel & Golf, all a good standard.
Where to eat
For a gourmet stay east of Tamatave, take a seat at the restaurant La Veranda, or various other restaurants offer food and dining.
What to see
The Tamatave - Fénérive-Est axis is not short of attractions. You will find on your way the seaside resort of Foulpointe, an ideal place to swim in the waters of the Indian Ocean with complete safety. As you continue your trip, you will arrive in Mahambo, a very quiet place famous for its surf spots.
