At Constance Tsarabanjina, Madagascar you can enjoy fresh fish caught from the ocean in the same traditional way it has been for hundreds of years.
Local fisherman in his pirogue
One of the many delights you’ll discover on the remote Madagascan island of Tsarabanjina is watching the daily arrival of the local fishermen delivering their catch to our chefs.
The fishermen live on the neighbouring island of Mitsio, the only other inhabited island in the archipelago, and they travel and fish in traditional boats called pirogues.
The pirogues are hollowed out wooden boats powered by oars. It’s from here that the fishermen cast their nets into the waters around the archipelago. Following the catch they make the 3 to 4 hour journey to Tsarabanjina.
Fishing in pirogues has been a way of life in Madagascar for hundreds of years with fishermen teaching the family craft to their children, and passing their skills down through the generations.
We at Constance are proud to support such a long held tradition and our guests enjoy the freshest fish caught from just beyond our own shores.
