DAY 1: Arrival in Antananarivo    

On arrival in Antananarivo you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel, where you can simply relax or go out and discover Antananarivo, the picturesque capital of Madagascar. 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.

Accommodation:    Residence Lapasoa, or similar.


DAY 2: Antananarivo – Maroantsetra  [B]    

Today you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Maroantsetra. You will be met at the airport and a transfer will take you to your hotel. Maroantsetra is a charming town situated at the bottom of the Antongil Bay, in a beautiful riverine scenery where the scent of vanilla and cloves fills the air. Its surrounding area is lush and green, and is dotted with rice paddies and stands of coconut palm.

Accommodation:     Coco Beach, or similar.


DAY 3: Maroantsetra – Masoala  [BLD]    

You will be transferred to the port where you will board a boat for Masoala. The Masoala Peninsula is the site of a 230,000 ha national park containing one of the best rainforests in the country and the largest protected area (terrestrial and marine) in Madagascar. After our arrival we will go on a 3 hour walk in the primary forest to see reptiles, birds, lemurs and orchids as well as rare and unique species such as the green lizard, the red owl, the tomato frog or the serpent eagle. You will even have the opportunity to relax and swim in the refreshing cool water of a river. To round off the day we will have a barbeque party at night.

DAY 4: Masoala [BLD]    

We will start our day with a 3 hour bird watching excursion followed by a visit to a typical village with plantations of vanilla, cloves and coffee. Masoala Peninsula is one of Madagascar’s premier trekking and hiking areas. It also offers excellent opportunities for sea kayaking and snorkeling - a simple mask is enough to admire the colourful marine world. Between July and September you will also have the chance to see the majestic humpback whale in the Bay of Antongil.

DAY 6: Masoala – Nosy Mangabe - Maroantsetra [BL]

Boat transfer to Nosy Mangabe, a scenic island with a variety of wildlife.  We will visit the reserve to admire its endemic flora and fauna. Later on you will have the exciting opportunity to see the Betsimisaraka tombs. The Betsimisaraka tribe is Madagascar’s second largest ethnic group and inhabits most of the central and north-eastern coastal region. The name Betsimisaraka, which means “those who stand together”, refers to the time when the tribe’s confederation was forged from several smaller tribes in the early 18th century. In the afternoon, we will go on a 15 minute boat transfer back to Maroantsetra.

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.

Accommodation:    Residence Lapasoa, or similar.
