You will be able to discover the endemic flora and fauna of Madagascar, such as rare palm trees and plants like orchids and mahoganies, as well as reptiles and 10 different species of lemurs living in its trees. In the afternoon you will go on a boat transfer to Tamatave in the Pangalanes Channel.  You will be collected at the port and transferred to your hotel in Tamatave, the major city on the east coast and the country’s largest port. It is a pleasant place with long, wide avenues lined with flamboyants and palm trees, a seaside promenade and a good selection of restaurants.

DAY 4: Tamatave – Sainte Marie [B]    

Today you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Sainte Marie, where you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure to explore this wonderful island paradise, Sainte Marie - the charming 57 km-long island that lies 8 km off the coast of eastern Madagascar. The island offers long beaches, shallow seas, cascades, tropical flowers and almost Caribbean atmosphere and is also of interest for its several old buildings and its long history as a pirate haunt.

For outdoor-lovers, the island is crossed with tracks and offers many opportunities to explore on foot. Enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean while snorkelling or scuba diving with one of the many operators on the island. From July to October, you will have the chance to see the majestic humpback whales near the island.

With its bustling markets, friendly people and ancient town on a hill with freestone churches and ancient royal places, it is unique among the world’s other capitals. You can wander through the capital’s steep and narrow streets, taking in its architecture, atmosphere and pace. Or you can climb up to the old rova (palace) and enjoy the views over Antananarivo and the surrounding countryside. The town is at its best in the evening when the setting sun spectacularly illuminates its hillsides.
