An incredible experience! Pangalanes is the longest freshwater canal. It stretches along the eastern coast of Madagascar. Nowadays, people live in large villages along the canal. Time has completely stopped there. There are few tourists and the nature is the same as it was centuries ago.
A canal that bathes several villages on the east coast of Madagascar, including the beautiful coastal city of Manakara. It is a trade route but also one of the tourist attractions of the area. It is advisable to take the boat ride with a local guide specialized in the area as I remind you that the crocodiles are the order of the day in this area. The tour is very nice and it is safe.
