Anjajavy is a special place. One to which I hope to return. From the moment you fly in by light aircraft to the private landing strip (there are no roads; the only alternative is by sea), you can completely relax. The resort is set in a natural environment, but in modern comfort with private individual lodges overlooking the sea and superb food, much of which is sourced from the three nearby villages..
This is a small, truly environmentally-friendly resort, which interacts responsibly with the local people and with the wildlife. Where else in the world could you be having a drink or meal within a few metres of Sifakas dancing sideways, or jumping from tree to tree, totally oblivious to humans. We went on several walks, some alone, others guided by the knowledgeable staff, including a night walk. They are truly adept at spotting wildlife, including over ten varieties of lemur. Other optional activities include visits to a local village market, fishing trips, a bat cave and a sunset cocktail cruise.
Resort manager Cedric meets, greets and takes a personal interest in the well-being of every guest and conveys his passion and eco-values both personally and through his team. The Malagasy staff are friendly and attentive, but not overly so. If you wish to spend time away from other guests (there were never more than eight in residence during our stay), you can arrange for one of the small beaches to be set aside for you, complete with picnic. For special occasions, a private candlelit table in the gardens is ideal.
Five nights was not enough. At least seven next time.
