De Tana à Tuléar


Madagascar has a botanical heritage of unparalleled richness; it is in itself a true biodiversity concentration!

Aloes, Didieracea, Euphorbias, Kalanchoe… 95% of succulent species are endemic. Very present in the Great South of Madagascar, we also find them in the highlands, along the West Coast up to the Cape of Amber.

Accompanied by a specialist of the Malagasy botany, we go off to explore this exceptional and amazing flora.

We recommend this circuit from mid-September to late October, but it can be done all year long.


For lovers of beautiful treks, we invite you to discover the greatest spots in Madagascar between Antananarivo and Tuléar, along the RN7.

 Eleven days of committed hikes reserved for good walkers (minimum 6 hours per day).

We walk on the Highlands and in the Zafimaniry Country to meet village life, moments rich in encounters and exchanges.

We then continue in the Andringitra Massif with the ascent of Pic Boby, the Isalo National Park and the famous and isolated Makay Massif.

The evenings are around the wood fire in the company of our guides and porters, the nights in tents. Our trip ends in Ifaty for a few days of relaxation at the edge of a sumptuous lagoon.


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.

In Madagascar, 80% of the population lives off the land. Farmers, breeders, they are the ones who feed the country! Rice, in quantity, but also a lot of market gardening, cash crops (cocoa, coffee, vanilla, cloves, ylang-ylang). The zebu is everywhere and in all daily activities. We go to meet Malagasy farmers to learn and exchange.

Our route takes us along the Hauts-Plateaux to Fianarantsoa, ​​from there we reach Manakara aboard the very picturesque train and then sail on the waters of the Pangalanes Canal. The lemurs then await us in the Ranomafana reserve before our return to the capital.

We recommend for this trip the periods from January to April.


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
