Your point of entry to Madagascar is Ivato International Airport (TNR) in Antananarivo (Tana). In most cases, your tour operator will organize all further ground operations, including airport pickup.
Ankarana Special Reserve is located about 1000km/621mi north of Tana. As the roads tend to be bad and driving times very long, most people fly around the island when visiting different areas. The most direct way to visit the reserve is to fly to Antsiranana (Diego Suarez). The distance from Antsiranana to the park entrance is 105km/65mi, and the driving time is about two to three hours. It is also possible to fly directly to Antsiranana from the popular beach resort area of Nosy Be.
