Day 1
On arrival into Antananarivo (Tana) today you will be met by an English speaking guide who will accompany you until you depart mainland Madagascar for Nosy Be.

You will be driven to Lokanga Boutique Hotel where you stay the night on a bed and breakfast basis.

Days 2 to 4
From Tana this morning you will be driven to Vakona Lodge which is a journey of approximately two and a half to three hours on reasonably well maintained roads.  The drive itself is very scenic and gives you the opportunity to see more of Madagascar including rice fields, villages and markets.  There is an option to break your journey at Marozevo/Madagascar Exotic, which is about half way.  This is a breeding facility for Malagasy reptiles, amphibians and butterflies and gives you the opportunity to view some species you may not see in the wild.

You will be staying at Vakona for three nights on a half board basis to include breakfast and dinner. You will have the chance to visit Andasibe/Analamazaotra, Vakona Private and Mantadia Parks during your stay as well as do a night tour to spot nocturnal animals.

Days 5 and 6
This morning you will be driven to Manambato from where you take a boat transfer to Akanin' ny Nofy. This is generally a lovely one and a half hour trip along the old shipping canal, but if the weather is wet or windy it can be a choppy journey. 

You spend the next two nights at Bushhouse which is a small, secluded property overlooking Lake Ampitabe on the Pangalanes Canal.  Your stay is on a half board basis to include breakfast and dinner.

Days 7 to 10
Today you will continue along the Pangalanes Canal on another boat journey of around three hours. You will be met and driven to Tamatave Airport in time to take a scheduled Air Madagascar flight departing for Tana. Times to be confirmed.

On arrival you will connect onto the scheduled Air Madagascar flight to Nosy Be. Times to be confirmed. You will be met on arrival into Nosy Be and transferred by boat to Tsarabanjina where you spend the next four nights on a full board basis to include all meals.

Day 10
Today you will be flown by scheduled Air Madagascar flight back to Tana. Times to be confirmed.
