Nosy Be, Madagascar


The village of Dzamanzary is the second most important inhabited place in Nosy Be. Dzamanzary lives mainly on the sugar business . An old locomotive from the beginning of the railway history is placed at entrance courtyard of the sugar cane factory, which can be visited upon admission (it opens Mo-Fr until 4 pm). The visit tour takes about an hour. From May to September, sugar cane is in blossom and the fields will turn to stretches of silvery panaches that will offer you a beautiful view. On the road to Dzamanzary you will see strange igloo-like constructions that serve as dwellings for the workers of the sugar factory. But Dzamanzary is also well known for its excellent rum, which can buy provided if you bring a bottle and a cork with you.
