Custom dictates that when a major event occurs in your life (building a house, marriage, birth … etc) or for any actions on the tree (pruning, repairing the fence), then we sacrifice a local “zebu” (Which is a type of cow endemic to Madagascar) an offering which is then shared among all guests and local villagers organized in at the sacred tree at the rear of our hotel.

The sacred trees are surrounded by a fence that prohibits access apart from during ceremonies, and to be able to enter to pray and make an offering, one must leave his/her shoes behind and wear traditional clothing, a local robe called a « KITAMBY ». The tree is adorned with white and red fabrics, traditional colors of ancient monarchies SAKALAVA. (a Red King and White King, the Aviavy Madirokely | Nosy Be arguing that the White King is only prepared tissue White)
