Subjected to a humid tropical climate, the locality of Mananara records an average temperature of 25°C and a relatively high humidity. To enjoy your stay, plan a trip between September and March.
Located on the RN5 in the Analanjirofo region, Mananara is one of the most difficult cities to reach by road. From Antananarivo, count between 2 and 3 days in 4x4 car and 1 hour by plane. From Toamasina you can also take the boat from Soanierana Ivongo.
In Mananara, luxury establishments are few. To be able to rest after your visit of the region, spend the night at Roger, the Yoyo Hotel or Villa Mahasoa Hotel.
To eat, join Sun Beach Ambitsika. However, if you wish to taste local specialties, you will find delights for your taste buds in the small restaurants held by locals. To end your day in style, enjoy the cheerful atmosphere that prevails at Chez Velo.
Besides the reserve and the town, the Andavakandrehy cave, a sacred cultural heritage site located 17 km south of Mananara, is worth a visit. There you will find a necropolis. The sarcophagi contain deceased persons with unknown identity. Discover also the most beautiful beach of the region located in the village of Sahasoa or "beautiful field". Do not miss the huge plantations of cloves and vanilla.
