Day 3: Excursion to Nosy Ve
Today you will visit the tranquil island of Nosy Ve - a sacred location to the Vezo people, where each year locals sacrifice zebu according to traditional rituals. The island is home to the world’s most southern all-year breeding colony of red-tailed tropicbirds, which attracts ornithologists from all around the world. With excellent sightings of these birds, coupled with stunning white beaches and excellent snorkelling, this island visit will be a highlight of your tour. [BD]
