Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Tana. Upon arrival into the capital city of Madagascar, known as Tana, clear customs and meet our representative for transfer to Anjary Hotel (mid range) or at hotel de Louvre (top) for overnight.

Day 2: Tana - Morondava. Take a flight to get to the western part of Madagascar. Morondava is the capital of Sakalava Menabe, west part of Madagascar. There are a lot to do in the surrounding of Morondava. About 15 km north of Morondava is the famous Baobab Avenue known as the "Allee de Baobab" (Baobab Alley). The best times to visit are at sunset and sunrise, when the colors of the trees change. The Special Reserve of Andranomena covers 6420 hectares and is located in the region Menabe, 30 km north of the town of Morondava. 11 species of reptiles and a species of amphibian have been counted in Andranomena. 48 species of birds, 10 species of mammals and 7 species of lemurs also live in the Reserve. Among these lemurs, 7 species of them are diurnal and five nocturnal. Overnight at Renala Sable d’Or (mid range and top) or hotel Baobab cafe (mid range and top).

Day 3: Morondava - Tsingy. Leave Morondava and drive to the Tsingy of Bemaraha. Bemaraha is 152000 hectares (66630 hectares of which have national park status) is one of the largest protected areas in Madagascar. The Tsingy of Bemaraha is a vast forest of rugged and eroded karst pinnacles. There are about 90 species of birds, 8 species of reptiles and 11 species of lemurs. Overnight at the hotel Olympe de Bemaraha (mid range and top) or Vazimba hotel (top).

Day 4: Tsingy. Full day visit at both small and big Tsingy. Bemaraha is a high spot of endemism and diversity. The scientists estimate that the general endemism of this park is 86,7 per cent and the eco regional one is 47 per cent. 11 species of lemurs are listed from there, five families of bats, 103 species of bird species.  The index of the reptiles and amphibians is as large as Bemaraha possesses 34 species that are all endemic. These are just a first taste of your discoveries. There is a broad canyon which is crossed by a swinging suspension bridge. Amid all this grey are splashes of green from the pachypodiums and other succulents. And there is plenty of wildlife too, expecting to see long eared owls perched on a branch. In the forests there are troops of Decken’s sifaka and red fronted brown lemurs. Overnight at the hotel Olympe de Bemaraha (mid range and top) or Vazimba hotel (top).

Day 5: Tsingy - Morondava. Drive back to Morondava, an hour stop at the Baobab Alley, a good opportunity to take a photo during the sunset. Overnight at Renala Sable d’Or (mid range and top) or hotel Baobab cafe (mid range and top).

Day 6: Morondava - Tana. This day, we take a flight to get to Tana, our final destination before flying back home.
