MAROANTSETRA :

is a gateway to the Masoala peninsula, Madagascar's largest national park. It is located at the bottom of bay of Antongil between the sea and the humid and luxuriant tropical forest .

NOSY MANGA BE :

is a rain forest-covered island situated 5km east of Maroantsetra in Antongil Bay. It is a special reserve managed by the National Association for the Management of Protected Areas (ANGAP), ANGAP. Nosy Mangabe is the largest island in Antongil Bay, covering 520 hectares with its highest peak at an altitude of 330m.In similar fashion to Masoala Park, Nosy Mangabe is bursting with wild life; however, some species are different and specific to Nosy Mangabe, such as the black and white lemur and aye-aye. Nosy Mangabe Island is attractive for nature enthusiasts, tourists, students, etc. From June to September humpback whales can be seen from the beach. The climate is warm and very humid and it can rain every day (which certainly happens).

MASOALA PARK :

is Madagascar's largest protected area. The park was established in 1997 to preserve this unique ecosystem comprising coastal rainforest, flooded forests, marsh and mangroves from the serious threatens by encroachment from the local communities that depend on the area for agricultural land and firewood, and from international logging companies seeking to harvest timber. The park forests abound with chameleons, geckos, frogs as well as several species of butterflies and fish which are new to science. As if that weren't enough, the forests, filled with rare, endemic species, tumble down to the edge of a pristine, unspoiled shore peppered with unexplored golden beaches and the three marine parks that protect over 10,000 ha of coral reefs, marine plants and mangroves around the peninsula. Presently, more than 3,001 fish species have been inventoried in the marine parks. Moreover, the Antongil Bay itself is used also as a sheltered place by humpback whales that gather here during breeding season. During the months of the austral summer, Antongil's waters literally froth with cetaceans. The region also supports one of the most diverse groups of palm species in the world.
