Island Hopping

Lokobie National Reserve and L’Heure Bleu

Journey back in time and embrace the Mora Mora Malagasy way of life on this rustic style camping trip.
It is a unique and unforgettable adventure. Your 4 nights are spent beneath the starlit sky in our rustic tented camp on the base of the Lokobie Reserve.

This trip provides fascinating insights into Madagascar as we explore the aquamarine bays, beaches, lagoons and channels. Swim with turtles, meet lemurs and experience creative cuisine over the campfire.

Your adventure starts the minute you book your trip and begins when you land at Nosy Be airport. You will be welcomed with a warm island greeting and travel through the ylang-ylang plantations and chaotic Helville town to the port, where you board the boat and head to the tented camp, an exploration journey of Madagascar.

From our tented camp set on the edge of the Lokobie Forest Reserve, we explore nearby Nosy Komba, visit its village market and get close to its habituated lemurs. You will have lunch on board and snorkel the Nosy Verona coral reefs. From Lokobie you also have the opportunity to do the jungle walk. Paddle out on the flat ocean and kayak to the nearby islands all at your own pace.

“Honore is a fantastic captain (as he was for us in 2008) and knows everything about Madagascar from the culture to the geography to politics and biology. We were so privileged to have him as our guide. ”

“We choose this destination to be able to snorkel and fish as we are avid water sports people. We weren’t disappointed and the cost of doing this with Marcine’s boat was affordable for the South African Rand.”
