Dive Center of the Month

Location: Nosy Be, Madagascar


More than 20 diving sites nearby, over 1,000 different marine species to be discovered:

​Diving at the Sakatia Lodge on Nosy Be, Madagascar, is a special experience. Our diving sites are still largely undiscovered and unfrequented. Therefore you are very close to nature and you will have unforgettable diving experiences!

The Sakatia Lodge specialises in macro diving and night diving: At night, a fluorescent underwater world can be admired, which you have probably never seen before. In the case of small marine organisms, it is definitely worth taking a closer look, because an incredible diversity of species is revealed. 🙂

Experience Madagascar Diving at the Sakatia Lodge!
