Discover MADAGASCAR with our Charm & Luxury Tour. Exploring the rainforest of Andasibe and the largest Lemurs of Madagascar. Ending at Anjajavy Le Lodge, home of lemurs and beautiful beaches for relax.
Day 1 Antananarivo
Meet at the airport of Antananarivo, the Capital of Madagascar; transfer to the hotel for a one night stay.
Day 2: Antananarivo – Andasibe
After breakfast, drive to Andasibe, the scenery is absolutely breath-taking. In Mandraka, a brief visit to the reptile Farm.
You are at the edge of the deep rainforest in Perinet (also called Andasibe). Your cottages are comfortable and rather a surprise to find so far away from home.
Check in, have dinner, and then join us on an evening walk into the rainforest to hopefully catch a glimpse of the nocturnal wildlife (perhaps a dwarf lemur or chameleon, maybe a fossa if you are lucky, or maybe more if you are very lucky). Either way, it is a wonderful experience to be in the deep rainforest as you listen to the night sounds and walk with an experienced guide.
Day 3 Andasibe
Early start to hike into the forest of Analamazaotra special reserve, one of the easiest parks to visit, to see the Indri Indri, the biggest lemur in Madagascar, these animals are monogamous, and do not live in captivity anywhere in the world.
The area is also home to grey bamboo lemurs and brown lemurs, these lemurs are very shy. As well as Parson’s chameleons which can exceed half a meter in length, the Madagascar tree boa, and numerous birds including the Madagascar blue pigeon, the Madagascar paradise flycatcher, the blue vanga and the Madagascar buzzard. This is a very relaxed and easy hike through the reserve.
Continue on visiting Andasibe village to get to know some of the local people and to discover the daily life.
Return to the hotel for lunch and an amazing visit to Lemur Island, which is right on the property. This is a refuge for 44 lemurs which had been kept as pets. The owner of Vakona Forest Lodge took the lemurs in and created this oasis for them. Take a boat across a very small stream – and be greeted by black and white ruffled, and common brown lemurs. The guide will have plenty of bananas and unbelievably, friendly lemurs sit on the top of your head or ride around on your shoulders – as long as you have a piece of banana for them…
Day 4 Andasibe – Antananarivo
Morning drive to the capital.
Afternoon visit the city, Tana with people in an amazing variety of African, Indian and western garb, and streets choked with all manner of motorized, human-powered, and animal-driven transport. It is a city of very faded glory that still shows signs of a more prosperous past. There are also beautiful villas covered by tumbling bougainvillea, palm-lined avenues, Anosy Lake crowned by blooming jacaranda in October, wonderful restaurants and great shopping: Tana does not leave anyone indifferent.
At the end of the day, enjoy a beautiful sundowner and a nice view of Antananarivo at Lokanga Boutique.
