Wake up to the sounds of the ocean from your beach-front villa on the remote island of Nosy Be. Only accessible by helicopter, the luxury Miavana Hotel offers ultimate ‘castaway luxury’ – its shores lined with sandy beaches and turquoise waters. During your stay, try from a range of Madagascan inspired ‘Blue Safaris,’ including scuba diving and snorkelling to explore the colourful reefs teeming with marine life. Fly across the waves whilst kite surfing or catch big game whilst out fly fishing beyond the reef. Whales can also be spotted from the island’s shores, whilst Madagascar’s famous lemurs and chameleons can be seen on a forest trek on the mainland. Enjoy sundowners at the hotel’s beach front bar before watching turtles nesting or hatching at nighttime, guided by the light of the moon.

The team at True Travel had a simple brief: to send us on the world’s best family safari. As soon as our boat headed down the Zambezi, it all kicked off; we passed a herd of hippos, a lazy crocodile and a giraffe drinking nonchalantly on the riverbank. A magical experience from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble and if we had any issue that needed resolving, there was always someone on hand to do this. Before and after, they were off the charts – simply an awesome team.
