Fizono (also called Fizoana) is a very small Betsimisaraka village located on the Masoala peninsula in the east of Madagascar. As there are no roads on the peninsula, the village can be reached only by foot. From Maroantsetra it takes about 1,5 hours by pirogue and thereafter 5-6 hours by foot, depending on the physical fitness and pace.

Welcome to Fizono!

Fizono is surrounded by large green rice fields. There is no electricity or running water available in the village. A river in the valley behind the village is used for washing and bathing. The village itself offers various basic hotels with rooms to rent and several shops stocked with only the most essential goods.
