When to go
Preferably between May and December. The climate will be more moderate, the rainfall less abundant, which results in better road conditions.
How to get there
Start your adventure from the capital by driving on the RN7 while enjoying the wonderful landscapes. Or take a regular flight by Air Madagascar to Nosy Be and drive from there to Ambanja.
Where to stay
The Hotel "Palma Nova" offers various air-conditioned rooms for relaxing before and after your trip and, also, family atmosphere and traditional music. Alternatively, in consideration of the ecosystem in the valley of Sambirano, opt for a delightful eco- lodging. The "Mitsinjo" panoramic hostel in Andranomandevy will give you a very warm welcome.
Where to eat
Take a taste journey in the Sambirano Valley, via local flavours made from fresh local produce and served in several hotel restaurants.
What to see
Meet the friendly people of Andranomandevy. On the agenda might be cocoa production, a hot spring with therapeutic qualities, a bird sanctuary and the village of Antanambao, located near the calm and limpid river of Ambahatra.
