The Mont Passot natural reserve is a nice place to discover in the middle of Nosy Be. If you're interested by animals, you can easily find Chameleons (Furcifer pardalis) but the small ones (Brookesia) are harder to find. Concerning the famous Nile crocodiles supposed to stay in each lake of the reserve, good luck to see one.. apparently, locals kill them to make some medics to sell to rich people (even if they are protected by law) and too much noise around the lake with the people fishing there all the time... They is a nice view point at the summit (after a 5 minute walk) if you are more lucky than me (clouds limit my view to 10 m...). There are also a handful of souvenir shops. If you want to visit the reserve you have to pay the entrance (about one euro) and it is recommended to have a guide (about 5 euros per person) but I recommend you the guide, especially Guy, they know a lot of things about animals and plants.

Me and my husband did Mont Passot as the last item on a day tour of the island. It is a very easy walk to the top from the parking and beautiful views from the top. We spotted lemurs on our way up as well as other animals. At the top we had a 360 degrees of the island and surrounding islands and a very pretty sunset, a bit cloudy but still beautiful.

Worth the deviation - very nice walk and view points, pity they charge for each such point of interest

We had a great Holiday at the Anjiamarango Beach resort. The service was premium, and from Arrivas to departure we where Met with personal service. Philippe has build a great place, and he understand how to provide an exellent service without overdoing it. Great. The staff is brilliant and very friendly. Phillipe were very helpful with organising samling tour, sightseeing, and ATV-Tour. An unforgettable week. We can only give this our very best recommendations. Best regards Henrik

I would definitely recommend to visit Mont Passot! We were here as we explored the island with a quad bike. The view is beautiful! I think this sight is a must see when visiting Nosy Be.
