Madagascar’s must-sees, a mosaic of treasures.

Far beyond its beaches and postcard clichés, there are other Madagascar must-sees. Waterfalls plunge into a lush landscape. Spas and massages in thermal waters guarantee relaxation. Impressive grottoes will amaze you on your hikes.

Reach the admirable natural oases of Madagascar’s waterfalls.

Madagascar’s many rivers and rainfall produce a number of natural waterfalls.

The Andringitra waterfalls

The Andringitra waterfalls, on the RN7, are a magnificent sight. They reveal lush vegetation. Legend has it that the twin waterfalls of Riandahy and Riambavy (male and female waterfalls) are sacred places. These two waterfalls are the largest, with a height of around 60 metres. Riamposy is smaller, but just as typical. A circuit makes the climb easier.

The Antomboka Falls,

The Antomboka Falls, in the Diana region, in the heart of Amber Mountain, are 62 m high. They owe their reputation to Amber Mountain. These waterfalls, shaded by ferns, make a great backdrop for selfie lovers and photo shoots. The Antomboka waterfalls spill over before arriving at the « great cursed lake ». In the immediate vicinity of Joffre Ville, they produce a veritable cool lodge. You can spot them as soon as you enter Diego Suarez.

The Nosy Be waterfall

The Nosy Be waterfall is a sacred place of worship and prayer. Note the trees surrounded by red and white cloth (the color of the Malagasy king), considered holy by the Malagasy. They wash themselves in the waterfall while praying. Take the opportunity to learn more about Malagasy culture.
