Remote yet accessible, Miavana by Tide + Tide is located at the very tip of Madagascar on a private island in a secluded archipelago. Two Robinson 66 helicopters open up a world of modern-day adventure, making Miavana the perfect jumping-off point for exploring Northern Madagascar.

This is a land still wholly wild, where you can experience nature in an authentic and immersive way. Fascinating creatures live amid remarkable landscapes, including many highly endemic and endangered species. A world of lemurs and chameleons, Madagascar is truly unlike any other place on Earth.


Merely 20 minutes over turquoise seas and emerald forests lies Tattersali Camp, a unique community project run by our partners Fanamby in the Daraina reserve. Set out with our experienced guide on a short walk exploring a beautiful area well off the beaten track, in search of the Golden Crowned Sifaka, a critically endangered species found here and nowhere else.


A lemur excursion par excellence. Anjahakely has a number of lemur species but the primary goal is to see the critically endangered Perrier’s Sifaka. This is the world’s only black lemur species, after which Fanamby’s Black Lemur Camp is named. Guests choosing this excursion over Daraina need to be relatively fit and passionate about the environment. There is also a chance to cool off in the natural pool at the foot of a waterfall.


Tsingy Rouge is a photogenic phenomenon. An unusual natural geological formation of red laterite, a type of stone and soil rich in iron and other minerals. The ‘Lavaka’ were caused by the erosion of the Irodo River, leaving behind soft strata with magnificent red and white formations. A hidden gem, where the beauty is also that you are unlikely to find many other visitors.

Ankarana is known for its extraordinary spiny limestone landscape called ‘Tsingy’ (meaning ‘walking on tiptoe’) as well as its extensive underground network of caves and rivers, some of which contain crocodiles. Lemurs, chameleons and leaf-tailed geckos can be found in Ankarana’s dry, deciduous forests. This is a region of extremely high biodiversity, fossils and fascinating human history. Guests need to be fit and interested in ecology in order to get the most from this visit.


Trek through leafy trails, chasing waterfalls in a tropical rainforest that has its own microclimate. Amber Mountain National Park is renowned for its abundant plant life with many endemic species of trees, ferns and orchids. Several species of lemur occur here and a variety of chameleon, including one of the world’s smallest vertebrates, the minute Brookesia.

Extraordinary staff, very relaxing with beautiful scenery. Well after a few hours a wave of peace floated in and for the next few days we were in heaven.

Breathtakingly beautiful and indescribably luxurious. Cannot fault or complain about absolutely anything. The Miavana team, the food, the beautiful accommodation creates paradise within paradise. This is a one of a kind place that will exceed your highest expectations!

Marina, 2022

My week long stay at Miavana was unparalleled in almost every aspect of luxury. Defining luxury not only in terms of great quality and exclusivity, but in terms of craftsmanship, consciousness and a unique enriching experience. The richness of the culture set the context for such unique environment, and is the pillar of every impressive distinguishing feature of Miavana.

Miavana will exceed your expectations. We traveled to Miavana for a week and had an incredible experience. The weather was perfect, the staff was attentive and there was enough activities on offer to keep us busy (honestly we could have stayed an extra week). The island is also home to a group of crowned lemurs which were amazing to see!
