COMFORT HIKING IN THE SOUTH – 12 DAYS

These “COMFORT HIKING” trips allow you to go hiking on the main spots of Madagascar without having to sleep in a tent. All nights are close to the sites, in charming and quality hotels.

As an appetizer, a walk on the Hauts-Plateaux, to meet the population.

Then the National Road 7 towards the South offers us the monumental granite blocks of Tsaranoro and the mischievous lemurs of the Anja reserve.

Finally, it is the Isalo massif which presents itself to us with its canyons and its dry forest. The road takes us to one of the most beautiful lagoons in Madagascar, Ifaty. We will let ourselves be seduced by the tranquility, the beauty and the hospitality of this land of the Vezo fishermen.

BIRDS OF MADAGASCAR – 15 DAYS

It is just an approach because time is limited, traveling several months is needed to apprehend a large number of Madagascar birding sites.

Malagasy aviary is unbelievable ! not particularly by its density but its endemism above all, 107 endemic species amongst 294. Nowhere else but here, in this region, in this Reserve or National Park, in this valley to encounter this or that species. That is the case for the Fitatrala (Copsychus albospecularis), the Firasa (Accipiter madagascariensis), the Akohonala, the crested Ibis (Lophotibis cristata) … and many others !

You are with a specialist !

Best months: october – november

RN7 AND THE EAST TRAIN – 13 DAYS

This tour is an invitation to discover the incredible diversity of the Great Island: hikes in the fertile Highlands and the rippling rice fields, quiet villages and children laughs, train crossing towards the lush of the East coast, quiet navigation by canoe on the Canal des Pangalanes which watersides planted with spices and coffee, strange and attractive nature of the great Ranomafana rainforest in contrast with the arid plateau of Horombe, walking through beautiful canyons of Isalo eroded by water, route to Mozambique Channel with singular tombs.

Our last stop to enjoy the seaside is the turquoise lagoon of Ifaty on the lands of Vezo fishermen.
