The best months to go to Ankify are the months from April to December, with an average temperature of 27° C. Boat transfers mostly take place in the morning when the sea is still calm. Nevertheless, motor boats can make the trip in one afternoon.
On the road from the capital Antananarivo, it takes about a day and a half to reach Ankify. The landscapes are pleasant to view, but the roads are not always in prime condition. Recently, cyclone Eliakim has left considerable impacts. It is therefore necessary to be well informed before leaving.
The restaurant "Baobab" and other nice little places line the quays and offer appetisers based on local products and mostly seafood. Otherwise, the hotel-restaurants are always an option.
"Ankify Lodge" is well located amidst the trees in the village of Doany, while "Baobab Hotel", with its bungalows, is located by the sea. We also offer "The Gardens of Ankify" to the environment dominated by shades of blue and green sea and exuberant forest.
Ankify is a place with many faces. Apart from the harbour and the quiet village of Doany, it is the habitat an amazing exotic fauna (indiscriminately camouflaged chameleons and rainbow frogs), lush fauna (majestic palms and orchids), and includes two beaches with exceptional panorama on the background of paradise islands on the horizon.
