Local boat from St. Augustin to Anakao
Ask the locals from the place you stay at or in town if they can take you to Anakao. It might not go as quick or well planned as you wish, so don’t expect that. But, you will get the real Malagasy experience for sure.
What to expect
When you find someone to take you to Anakao, you have to agree on a price. Nothing is expensive in Madagascar, so this part will be fine. The local fishing boats that will take you there, also called Pirogues, are in the river along the town and you will meet there.
The pirogues are very small and with some waves it can be quite a bumpy experience, so keep that in mind if you suffer from seasickness. Overall, just sit back, relax and wait until you arrive at the beautiful paradise of Anakao Madagascar.
