This is one of Anakao’s more romantic excursions, ideal for honeymoon couples, but not only for them. You go out by boat in the late afternoon to reach the island of Nosy Satrana where a cocktail with or without alcohol (your choice) will be served with a delicious aperitif. You admire the sunset as the Anakao sky is tinged with a thousand shades from orangey red to violet before returning to the lodge in good time for dinner.

The Tsimanampetsotsa National Park is a site of great biological and scenic importance. It is considered to be one of the ten most important reserves in Madagascar. Unique in kind, with a lake of alkaline origin, an irresistible attraction not only because of its pink and dwarf flamingos but also for its many other winged species, it was made a park in 1927, long before the London International Convention for the protection of African fauna and flora.

A strategic wetland area that extends for over 43,200 hectares with more than 90% of the biological species endemic to the park. There are regularly organised excursions by quad bike from Anakao Ocean Lodge which include the lake, the cave with blind fish, a route for admiring the baobab trees that are amongst the oldest on the planet, and the beautiful beach of Ambula. Departures from the lodge are at 7 am to get back in the late afternoon.
