Head to Lac Anosy and immerse yourself in tranquility as you take in views of the surrounding lush, hilly scenery complementing this serene body of water. Previously a swamp, the heart-shaped artificial lake is located in the southern part of Madigascar's capital. It features a French-built WW1 memorial dedicated to those who fell during the war. Connected to the mainland by an isthmus, the island was once used to store explosive materials. You can sometimes see locals fishing and washing in the lake.

  • In this way, one can summarize the sensory impressions after a circumnavigation of the lake. Car exhaust and human excrement provide the olfactory pleasure, the four and two-stroke engines give neatly to the ears. If you turn to your nose and ears, the lake looks quite nice. Defines it an interesting experience.

  • The road needs the complete turn of this lake which gives a little calm to a very dense road traffic in Tana. Beautiful views from and from the Lake.

  • Dirty, stinky and unpleasant. Used as a public place to defecate. Do not go there.
  • Should not go alone
