WHERE WILL WE BE STAYING?
Sakatia Lodge is located on the small island of Nosey Sakatia, just off of Nosy Be Island, Madagascar. The lodge is made up of 11 bungalows and 2 large Villa’s. We will be staying in the 2 large Villa’s that are situated right on the beach, overlooking the crystal blue waters. Each Villa has three bedrooms each with a private bathroom, 24hr electricity, and air-conditioning. The Villas have large private verandas as well as private sun beds for customers to enjoy. There is also a fridge in each Villa, so customers are able to keep drinks and snacks cold for their consumption whenever they want.
The lodge provides customers customers with a 3 course dinner each night, as well as breakfast and lunch daily in their beach side restaurant. There is also a beach side bar providing clients with the perfect place to relax with a drink after a long day in the sun and diving.
WHERE WILL WE BE DIVING?
The Nosy Be area is known for its small & rare critters and huge variety of hard and soft corals. Divers are treated to a vast array of tropical reef fish, brightly colored nudibranchs, rare pygmy pipe horses and immense table top corals.
There are more than 20 dive sites that we can visit, ranging from 1 km to 15 km from the Lodge. Most dive sites are suitable for all levels of qualification. The average depth is 18 meters. In the channel between Nosy Be and Nosy Sakatia we have dive sites that are suitable for those who are limited to 12 meters.
All dives are boat dives, there are no shore-entry dives.
There is also a possibility of doing dive charters on a catamaran called Maki Cat to explore the Mitsio archipelago in the north or the Radamas in the south. The maximum capacity is 6 divers. Maki Cat has its own dive guide on board. A combination of land diving and charter diving is possible.
Come and experience the unique world of Fluro Diving. This relatively new form of diving, done at only a few lodges around the world, lets divers experience something entirely different. See the underwater world in a way you never have before as the reef and animals light up in a technicolor rainbow of wondrous colours under a blue light. Divers use special torches and mask filters provided by Sakatia Lodge’s Dive Center to see a new world hidden to our eyes.
