Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Any time of year is fine for a visit except from January to March, when heavy rainfall in many areas can make some roads all but impassable, and when there’s a high risk of cyclones in the east and northeast. In general, the best time to travel in most areas is April and October/November. The coolest time to travel anywhere is during the dry season (May to October).

Average maximum temperatures vary from about 30°C in coastal areas (higher in summer) to around 25°C on the hauts plateaux. In Antananarivo and other highland areas, temperatures during winter can drop to 10°C and even lower during the night.

Jardin Vanille is a charming eco lodge located in the village of Anjiabe, looking out over the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, on the South-Western coast of Nosy Komba.

In the traditional Malagasy village of Anjiabe you will find Jardin Vanille. This intimate eco lodge is situated on a picturesque hill over looking the Indian Ocean and is only a short walk from the beach.

Each of the eleven charming bungalows are nestled amongst lush greenery and are designed to reflect the style of a traditional Malagasy home using wood and ravinala leaves. All rooms are equipped with fans as well as an en-suite bathroom with warm water showers.

As well the bungalows there is also one Tsaramanga suite which is larger in size, this suite includes both a large bedroom and living room with your own private terrace only 15 meters from the beach.

The eco lodge is a fantastic base for relaxation, where guests are welcome to enjoy the stunning sea views sat amongst greenery made up of mango, jack fruit, banana and ravinala trees. The lodge can also be a good base to experience activities such as whale watching (July-November), scuba diving or tours in search of other wildlife.
