Excursion to Lokobe Reserve

Another great excursion from Nosy Be is a visit to the Lokobe Reserve in the south-eastern part of the island.

Lokobe Reserve is known for its brown lemurs, as well as the smallest chameleon in the world and the miniature frog which manages to grow to a maximum of 1cm in length! Part of the attraction of the Lokobe excursion is getting there. First, you transfer by road to Ambatozavavy village. Here, you take a pirogue (dugout canoe) for a boat cruise over to Lokobe reserve. This can be quite exciting if the water is choppy (as it was when we headed to Lokobe). But don’t worry! It is an ancient form of transport for these local people and so you are in good hands.

After paddling back, you enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal at the village before heading back to your hotel.

Note: Please note that we don’t arrange Nosy be day excursions as stand-alone activities. Only as part of a tailor-made Madagascar holiday booked with Cedarberg Africa.
