Fort Dauphin Cruise

Cruise to Fort Dauphin, Madagascar | MSC Cruises

A natural reserve to discover

An MSC cruise to Southern Africa will take you as far as the southern tip of the beautiful island of Madagascar. The ship will dock at Fort Dauphin (Tolagnaro). As seen from the remains of two ports – one Portuguese and one French – Fort Dauphin has stood guard over this stretch of the coast, from which ships have been leaving for India for centuries, for five hundred years.

The colonial name of Talognaro and its French street names reveal the French origins of this small port, which dates in its current state to the 17th century. Today, Fort Dauphin is above all an excellent setting off point for naturalistic excursions offered by MSC Cruises.
Some recommended must-see tourist attractions for a holiday in Fort Dauphin are the Saiadi Botanic Gardens, and the Botanical and Zoological Garden Domain of Nahampoina (now officially a reserve). Here, within 10 kilometres of the city, you will be able to immerse yourselves in what remains of the original Madagascar flora, as well as admire “home-grown” animals such as tortoises and other reptiles, in addition to the adorable lemurs.
