Responsible tourism in Toamasina, a win-win-win situation
In terms of tourism, the region Atsinanana in the province of Toamasina is underdeveloped. The region has a lot to offer – not only whale spotting and virgin rainforests with their wildlife, but also hundreds of miles of sandy beaches, culturally interesting sites and the Pangalanes Canal that flows alongside the ocean. All of these opportunities are waiting to be exploited and promoted. Once developed, tourism will contribute considerably to the economic development of the entire region.
Project Lambahoany specialises in responsible eco-tourism in the region Atsinanana and takes the region’s specific characteristics into account. With Project Lambahoany, you can visit remote areas where people still maintain their ancient customs, along the remainder of the virgin rainforests that once covered most of Eastern Madagascar. Your visit gives new opportunities to the inhabitants to raise their standard of living and to preserve their forest.
In a nutshell: it is a win-win-win situation: tourists will enjoy the holiday of a lifetime, the living conditions of the rural population will improve and nature will be better preserved.
