This island is called the eighth continent - Madagascar is unlike any island in the world! We will enjoy its unique nature and amazing people, raft on remote and pristine rivers and walk in the ancient cities, enjoy dawn on the famous alley of baobabs, snorkel in the Indian Ocean and meet lemurs of all colors and sizes!

  • Day 1
    Arrival in Antananarivo and checking into a guesthouse. We will go for a walk through the colorful city, visit old district and the royal palace of Rova, and take a bird's-eye view of the capital of Madagascar.
  • Day 2-3
    Early in the morning after the traditional breakfast we go to the national park Andasibe-Mantadia (6 hours on the way). We watch chameleons, crocodiles, geckos, giraffe beetles, and, of course, various types of lemurs, which have become the symbol of the island. This park is famous for unique singing Indri lemurs. To see not only diurnal animals, but also nocturnal ones, we will take a walk in the jungle at night.
  • Day 4
    We leave for Antsirabe, the third largest city of Madagascar (9 hours on the way). We check into the hotel, and then take off to explore the streets between the multicolored colonial houses. The city was founded by Norwegian missionaries in the 19th century, and in the early 20th century, thermal springs were discovered here, around which baths were built. We will enjoy French colonial architecture, and ride bright, colorful rickshaws - the most popular local means of transportation.
  • Day 5-7
    We head west and in the evening arrive to the coast city of Morondava, where we will spend the night. In the morning we go to the village Bekupak, where we will make the next stop. Next day we hike for 4-5 hours to the unique stone forest – the massif of Tsingy. Light climbing, passing through a cave – and we are on a suspension bridge over a precipice, surrounded by sharp peaks of rocks. The landscapes are amazing!
  • Day 8-9
    In the morning we take off to the so-called dry Kirindy forest (5 hours on the way). This dry deciduous forests boasts fossa, the only Madagascar predators, and the world’s smallest primates – mouse lemurs. We do night and day walks along the reserve, and enjoy walks on canopy over the jungle. On the second day of our stay we go back to Morondava (1.5 hours on the way). We greet sunset on the world famous Avenue of the Baobabs. Then we check into a hotel in Morondava.
  • Day 10
    We wake up early to enjoy dawn at the baobab alley. Long-term moving (about 8.5 hours) to Antsirabe, picturesque town with thermal springs. Check-in at the hotel, evening walk around the city.
  • Day 11
    Morning departure to Ambositra. Lunch in the typical local cafe, and transfer to the "second capital" of Madagascar, the ancient city of Fianarantsoa (6 hours). Accommodation in the hotel in the city center.
