Experience Madagascar’s varied habitats during this journey which takes you from the waterfalls and lakes of Montagne d’Ambre National Park to the underground caves and limestone ‘tsingy’ of Ankarana Reserve, before enjoying the tropical beaches of Nosy Be. Throughout your stay you will have the opportunity to encounter a multitude of animals, most of which are endemic to Madagascar.

Day 1: Tsaralalana

On arrival in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, you will be welcomed and provided with assistance by one of our friendly staff before transferring to your hotel in the city. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

Day 2 - 3: Amber Mountain

You will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Diego Suarez, where you will be collected at the airport. We then drive directly to Montagne d’Ambre National Park, which covers 18,200 ha of a prominent volcanic massif and with its striking scenery, rainforest and waterfalls, it is one of Madagascar’s most visited natural attractions. It was created in 1958 to protect the massif and its ecosystems, including the region’s unique flora and fauna. We arrive in the late afternoon. The next day is spent exploring the park on foot. In the park you will have the chance to see seven species of lemurs, the ring-tailed mongoose and a variety of reptiles including frogs, geckos and chameleons, as well as more than 70 species of birds.

Day 4: Antsiranana Province

Today we head to Ankarana – a nature reserve with karst pinnacles, sacred caves, underground rivers and beautiful scenery. The rich and diverse flora and fauna includes many lemurs and interesting bird species. Its limestone pinnacles are called tsingy formations.  Running through and under the tsingy are hidden forest-filled canyons and numerous subterranean rivers. We will explore the extensive cave system, which includes several fascinating bat-filled grottoes.

Day 5: Antsiranana Province

Today we will have a full day to visit the Ankarana nature reserve, where once again you will have the chance to admire the remarkably rich and varied vegetation and the abundant wildlife of the reserve.

Day 6: Ambaro

Today we drive to Ankify – a small village situated along a white sand beach. From here we will go on a boat transfer to Nosy Be where you will be transferred by car to your hotel.

Nosy Be, commonly known as “the island of perfumes” and the largest of Madagascar’s offshore islands, is a beautiful tropical island covered with palm trees and bougainvillea. Nosy Be is a beautiful place where you could easily spend the entire day simply watching the changing hues of blue in the sea and the sky. In addition to its attractive beaches, the island’s assets include luxuriant foliage, friendly people and a relaxed Indian Ocean ambience.

Day 7: Ambaro

This day in Nosy Be is at leisure. The following optional activities is available. Visit the Lokobe Reserve, a rainforest reserve that protects most of Nosy Be’s endemic vegetation. You might see lemurs, birds and chameleons. Or go on a day-cruise to the islands “Nosy Komba”- the island of lemurs or “Nosy Tanikely”- an underwater reserve offering a rich diversity of marine life, such as beautiful corals and a big variety of fish, with excellent diving and snorkelling opportunities. Fish you might see include surgeonfish, clown fish, barracuda, manta rays, sea urchins, starfish, eels, anemones and many more. At the end of the afternoon we will go back to the hotel where you will have the chance to enjoy the amenities on offer.
