Welcome to Island life...
Throughout our MidLifer trip we will visit a fair few of Madagascar's exotic islands but our main base and spring board will be Nosy Be.
Nosy Be is the largest, just off the north-west shore of the mainland, and is where we will fly into. What we are going to find is a little slice of paradise - squeaky white beaches, crystal clear waters wrapping around a core of lush rolling hills covered in the sweet smelling ylang ylang
plantations and rum distilleries: think the
Caribbean but better...
There are 2 main towns for us to explore - the main hub called Hell-Ville and a more beach orientated one called Ambatoloaka which is where we are going to base ourselves for the first few days.
From here we will visit Nosy Tanikely (famous for its marine reserve), Nosy Sakatia (famous for their giant green turtles) and Nosy Komba (famous for their lemurs) so get your snorkle, flippers and waterproof camera at the ready, you are in for a treat.
