Nosy Be

From the series “The Most Beautiful Islands on the Planet”
Nosy Be is the largest island of the archipelago of the same name and is considered an expensive spa town of Madagascar. The exotic island is the location of a lot of luxury hotels, expensive restaurants, nightclubs and shops. For many years now the world famous celebrities Nosy Be have chosen for the rest. Despite the rapid development of travel and entertainment infrastructure, the exotic island has maintained the most important - the natural harmony and the quiet atmosphere.
Only a few kilometers from the busy tourist centers, the atmosphere of peace and the peace of soul prevails. The exotic island will definitely please the followers of the restoration, as well as the excursion fans. The interesting sights can be found in every tiny town. In the capital you can visit the colorful old market. And in the village of Dzamandzari you can see the Rumbet mountain, which was opened in 1900.
The largest part of the island is assigned to the Lokobe nature reserve, the area of ​​which is 740 hectares. The rare black lemurs and the chameleon live on its territory. Another attractive feature of the island is the friendliness of the tribe population. Almost all locals who do not work in the tourism sector are the fishermen. They give the tourist all necessary equipment and bring them to the best fishing spots. A pleasant surprise awaits the divers on Nosy Be Island. In addition to hundreds of exotic sea-dwellers, one can see the ruined old ships in coastal waters. ... Complete sights collection

Andohahela National Park

From the series “Top 11 Dangerous Spots for Adrenaline-Seekers”
The island of Madagascar houses Andohahela National Park that may be called one of the most beautiful places in the world. Rare endemic plants are growing there. The park territory is home to 12 species of lemurs, as well as more than 120 species of birds. For many years, the park has attracted researchers from different countries, as well as usual nature lovers, but the last years visiting it is considered to be extremely dangerous.
The reason for this is a high level of crime. Tour groups are the most desirable treat for the local bandits. There is no official ban on visiting the reserve, but in recent years, dozens of victims of robbery appeared. Despite this, tourists still can participate in fascinating walks, and some tourist centers even offer tourists to spend a night in the park in tents.
Under these circumstances, the last form of entertainment is clearly superfluous, but riding along the reserve by jeep or walking by feet accompanied by an armed guide can be safe for the life and health. The park occupies about 760 square km, and not all of its sites are dangerous to visit. As a general rule, criminal groups forage near the town, and if you get to remote areas of the reserve, you can relax and enjoy the natural splendor without a fear. Despite the high level of danger and inaccessibility of the reserve, every year it is visited by about 1 500 travelers. ... Complete sights collection
