Literally meaning “Nest of Dream”, this peaceful village is a home to a rich endemic biodiversity, including a strange night lemur: the Aye Aye.

On this channel, there are still some rainforests in which you can find lemurs, orchids, carnivore plants, endemic amphibians, precious wood and birds as well.

Once in Tamatave, you will be taken for a road transfer for a two-hours trip to the Mahambo village. This spot is well known to be a surfing spot, thanks to its huge waves, yet not dangerous.
