Andapa inherited the sub-equatorial climate of SAVA. The best seasons to be there are between August and December and March to mid-May. At these periods, the rainfall gives way to sunshine.
Sambava, the mother city of the SAVA region, is accessible by plane. Afterwards, the Sambava - Andapa mountain road (120km) is narrow but good. For the more experienced, the Tana - Sambava journey can be done by car, but on average it is a 48 hour drive, including a very exhausting part, before arriving at the destination.
For quality accommodation in the town of Andapa, we propose the Hotel Vatosoa, the Hotel Riziky or the Hotel Beanana. On the way to Sambava, you will also find the Hotel Carrefour at a beautiful location and in an idyllic setting.
Hotel Carrefour also offers a fine restaurant. Located on Andapa's main street, Maroantsetra is a must-visit cosmopolitan address (Asian, European or Malagasy cuisine).
On the Andapa road, enjoy breathtaking views as you pass over the long metal bridges across the Lokoho River (you can view the canyons and peaks of Marojejy in a spectacular way). Afterwards, the visit to Marojejy National Park and the Betaolana corridor is a must. Also explore, some 40km away, the Anjanaharibe Special Reserve where a very rare 120 million year old flower was rediscovered in 1994. This is also an opportunity to see Madagascar's largest lemur, the Indri.
