Lemurs and Islands - Tailor Made Private Guided Safari
Highlights * Andasibe-Mantadia Park * Lemurs * Island Relaxation
Arrive in Antananarivo and transfer to your hotel for an overnight stay.
Head off with your driver-guide to Andasibe for a 2 night stay. The Andasibe-Mantadia National Park is a remarkable rainforest. There are 14 species of lemur in the Mantadia Park, including the Aye aye lemur, and the Madagascar chameleon. You’ll also find hundreds of species of orchids, some very rare, ferns and walking trails through the dense forest. Highlights of your stay here will include a visit to Vakona’s Lemur Island and an unforgettable night walk in the VOIMMA Reserve.
Visit the Analamazaotra Reserve where you might see the Indri lemur, one of the largest living lemurs with a loud, distinctive call. Your journey continues with a boat trip along the Pangalanes Canal to Akanin’ny Nofy on the shores of Lake Ampitabe for an overnight stay and a nocturnal Aye aye walk.
Visit the Palmarium Reserve and botanical garden on the banks of the Panganales Canal, home to various reptiles and several species of lemur, including Coquerel’s sifaka. Continue by boat to Toamasina for an overnight stay.
Take the ferry across to the tropical island of Sainte Marie for a 3 night stay at Princesse Bora Lodge. Relax by the pool or on palm-fringed beaches – the island is peaceful and unspoilt. Spend some time in the ocean, snorkelling among coral reefs, wakeboarding or kite surfing. Inland, there are hiking trails, mountain bikes and guided adventures on quad bikes or by 4x4. Sail by pirogue to sandy banks and if you happen to be there in July and August you may spot the humpback whales as they migrate. Charges apply locally for the island activities.
Fly to Antananarivo. We recommend an overnight stay before continuing your adventures in Madagascar or travelling to your next destination.
