About Ankify

The small town of Ankify is the main port for boats and ferries between the coast of Madagascar and Nosy Be. It's definitely a place for nature lovers, and those who enjoy an adventure, to go for a fun and memorable experience. With things like fishing, exploring the town, enjoying a variety of watersports and the fun of tasting the town's fresh local seafood and fruit, there's never a dull moment in Ankify.

Time to go to work for this man. Ankify fishermen head out to sea to catch whatever's biting so that they can sell their fish in the markets and feed their families.
