Most people start their holiday in Madagascar in Antananarivo (Tana). Your tour operator will probably pick you up at Ivato International Airport (TNR) and handle all travel logistics from there.
Nosy Mangabe Special Reserve is never visited by itself. Overnight camping is possible, but most people visit the island as a day trip, coming from Maroantsetra or in combination with a safari in Masoala National Park.
The gateway town to Masoala and Nosy Mangabe is Maroantsetra, which is located 750km/466mi from Antananarivo. The boat transfer from Maroantsetra to Nosy Mangabe takes 30 to 45 minutes and is dependent on the weather.
