Day Itinerary After a quick breakfast, you will be transferred back to Ivato airport for your flight to St Marie. On arrival, you will be met at the airport & transferred to Princess Bora Lodge, your hotel on this tropical island.
Sainte Marie Island This long, narrow island off Madagascar’s east coast might be just the piece of heaven you’re looking for. Also known as Nosy Boraha, its lush islets, bays and coves will provide the same privacy and mystique they did for the legendary pirates that held out here after their plunders in days gone by. The waters are endowed with significant coralline growth and offer first-class diving; or if you prefer being ‘onboard’, take a traditional pirogue ride in the calm bays – from July you can witness the migration of substantial groups of humpback whales off the Madagascar coast. And for history lovers, a visit to the pirates’ cemetery of Saint-Pierre is a must.
Day Itinerary After a leisurely breakfast, check out of your hotel and transfer to the airport for your departing flight to Antananarivo and onwards home.
