Zahir Lodge, Nosy Iranja
Le Zahir Nosy Iranja Lodge
Le Zahir Nosy Iranja and Le Zahir Nosy Be! ‘Mainland’ or ‘Island’?
Accessibility to all Nosy Be attractions or turtle hatching, endless white beaches and crystal clear water? Tough decision? Scroll down to see our special offer combining both these fantastic lodges!
Zahir Lodges - owned by the marvellous Cesare - have been one of our happiest discoveries in Nosy Be.
Zahir Nosy Be is situated right on Madirokely Beach in Nosy Be and offers wonderfully comfortable overnight accommodation with a welcome, fresh water swimming pool and excellent cuisine. Within easy access of all local excursions and activities Zahir Nosy Be offers a quiet, cool sanctuary from the busy heat outside.
7 nights Le Zahir Lodges Combo
Zahir and MadagasCaT have negotiated an exclusive deal whereby our clients can design their own combination of both lodges for a set rate that includes all transfers, full board at Nosy Iranja and half board at Nosy Be Lodge.
Use the time to discover the authentic Malagasy way of life whilst still enjoying comfort and superb cuisine. Nosy Iranja is one of the world’s most beautiful island destinations and remains relatively unspoilt. Take a walk across the 750m sandy spit at low tide to visit the smaller of the two islands; wander securely through the village witnessing the villagers in their day to day routine, wander up the hill and enjoy the panaromic view from a lighthouse build by Gustav Eiffel. Whilst you are in Nosy Be make use of the time by exploring Lokobe National Park, touring through the island with a guide or on a quad bike to discover the sacred tree, Mont Passot, the market, Ylang Ylang and Rum distilleries and so much more. On our route back from Nosy Iranja you will also stop at Nosy Antsoa and meet a variety of friendly lemurs that enjoy their own little piece of paradise. Check out Le Zahir Nosy Be here.
Le Zahir Nosy Iranja
This is a truly authentic Malagasy island experience. Nosy Iranja is often described as one of the most beautiful Indian Ocean Islands - and it's not hard to see why. One island at low tide becomes two when the high tides from both sides of the 750m sand spit crash together and – for an hour or two – completely cover the ‘bridge’. It is possible to visit for a day trip but we highly recommend staying here for two, even three nights. The local village is discreetly nearby the Lodge so the remote, happy sounds of children’s laughter, fires crackling, dogs, chickens, ducks and zebu are all part of the background ambiance. Your bungalows are comfortable and clean, the "grounds" are tidied with local staff and a magnificent black zebu cow and cart.
The greatest delights are the friendly but unobtrusive local villagers that come and go in their daily routine.
Meals are served on the beach and are all fresh, fresh, fresh!
At the right time of year guests are treated by a short walk to witness turtle hatchlings on their desperate scramble to reach the water’s edge.
Other activities include a walk up the hill to the lighthouse built by Gustav Eiffel (yes that one), a stroll through the village, a fairly strenuous walk across the 750m sand strip to the 'other' Nosy Iranja, snorkelling or just relaxing.
