Travel in Madagascar promises to be an interesting experience.

Madagascar's wildlife is among the best in the world in terms of diversity, abundance, and approachability, including 150 species, 16 genera and 2 families of fish, primarily inhabiting the island’s freshwater rivers and lakes.

More than 670 species of terrestrial snail are endemic, as are a majority of the island’s scarab beetles, butterflies, spiders, lacewings and dragonflies. Environmental challenges Madagascar’s varied flora and fauna are endangered by human activity.

Nosy Sakatia, an island away from an island, is a nature's paradise. It is situated on the west coast of Nosy Be, Madagascar. Nosy Sakatia offers the typical unspoilt tropical fauna and flora of this area. Only 6.5 km long and 2 km wide at its widest point, and has a current population of ±450 inhabitants. There are no roads, only foot paths. The island is perfect for one to wonder and explore its beauty and deserted beaches. The island is fringed by spectacular coral reef to be enjoyed by snorkelers or scuba divers alike.

The Saskatia Dive Centre is affiliated to DAN SA and offers NAUI diving courses. Sakatia Lodge also organises other activities such as quad biking, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, tracking and exploring other islands within its vicinity.
