    Day 2 Natural Reserve of Andasibe

    Day 2 starts with a morning visit to the Special Reserve of Andasibe to see the Indri, the largest lemurs on the island. In the afternoon, we visit Andasibe village, which is typical of the Betsimisaraka community, the second largest tribe on the island. This short visit gives us insight to the local people, to see how they live and what they eat. We overnight at the same hotel.

    Day 3 Andasibe – Antsirabe

    We drive head south to Antsirabe, across the highland landscape. We stop in Ambatolampy for a quick visit to this huge agricultural city. ‘The place of salt’ is an elegant city and known as the centre of the beer industry – we can smell the Star Brewery as we enter the town!

    Day 4 Antsirabe to Ranomafana National Park

    After breakfast we drive to Ambositra. Further on we pass the ‘le col de tapia’, a type of tree resistant to bush fires. The landscape is still dominated by rice fields, pine forests, eucalyptus trees and rocky mountains. We turn off from Ranomafana National Park.

    Day 5 Ranomafana National Park

    You will go for long walks in the National Park spotting some of the lemurs, chameleons and other animals.

    Day 6 Fianarantsoa – Isalo

    We leave Ranomafana and pass Fianarantsoa ‘the city where one learns good things’. In Ambalavao we visit a wine industry for wine tasting. We then pass through the huge ‘Plateaux de Horombe’ with its very deep red soil, which reminds us of ‘the no man’s land’ and we arrive in Isalo.

    Day 7 Isalo

    Today, we will visit and hike in the Isalo National Park. Along the way, there may be sifakas, brown lemurs and ring-tailed lemurs, as well as fifty-five species of birds, lizards and snakes. We finally reach the swimming pool- a great reward after a long and very hot walk.

    Day 8 Isalo to Ifaty

    After a short visit of Tuléar we drive to Ifaty. We will cross the dry and sandy soil and we will see many small pirogues with men who go out fishing twice a day, while children and women wait on the coast to collect the fish before taking them to Tuléar for sale.

    Day 9 Isalo to Ifaty

    It is an ideal place for diving and snorkelling and a popular place for birdwatchers. In the afternoon we can walk to the village of Mangily to visit a local school and experience the Vezo fishermen’s way of life.

    Day 10 Ifaty – Tuléar – Tana

    Early in the morning at around 6h00 we transfer to the airport for the flight back to Tana. Walk from the high city to see the Rova, which is now a museum. The mid-city, or the administration area, ends at the Rainiharo tombs.
