The city of Antsiranana in northern Madagascar was named Diego Suarez in colonial times. Today a few
architectural remains to remind us of the French past. One of them is the old “Hôtel des Marines”, which
was left to decay and is now being reclaimed by nature. Antsiranana is especially interesting for all
travelers who want to combine a white sandy beach holiday with clubs, discos and nightlife.
The urban atmosphere is characterised by East African, Arab and Asian immigrants and makes the small
business centre a lively place with colorful painted houses. Antsiranana is one of the most beautiful cities
in Madagascar. The streets are wide boulevard style and are bordered by colonial buildings
The red tsingy are located in the north of the island, about 50 km from Diego Suarez. The Tsingy can be
reached within an hour via a sand road. Compared to the Tsingy de Bemaraha in the west, the red Tsingy
are made of sandstone and not limestone and are therefore much more sensitive. The reddish colour is
given to this formation of hundreds of peaks from the red laterite earth, which is so typical for
Madagascar. The peaks of the Tsingy rouge are up to 10 meters high and shine in various shades of red.
The Tsingy rouge are located in a gorge where more and more tsingy appear due to erosion, but also
tsingy disappear due to wind and water erosion. So this formation changes again and again and makes it
Ankarana is a special reserve located about 90 kilometres south of Antsiranana and can be easily visited
from there. The reserve is not very big and is primarily known for the Tsingy. Tsingy are calcareous rock
structures that rise razor sharp from the ground. Over thousands of years they have been transformed
from rainwater into their present. What can we do there? Take a hike to the green lake “Lac Vert”.

covered with many prohibitions, the fadys of the poor. Discover the Green River, an underground river
that only briefly rises to the surface in the canyon
