Nature Tour 2
- Arrival in Antananarivo: « the city of a thousand soldiers »
Tonga soa, welcome to Madagascar. Once arriving at the airport of Antananarivo, the team of bandro reisen will welcome you. After the formalities of entrance in the Malagasy land, you will be driven directly to your hotel. It will be your first night in Madagascar.
- Antananarivo – Ankarafantsika: to the dry forest
The landscape is characterized by hill and many rivers.
- Ankarafantsika: Ankarafantsika national park
The Ankarafantsika national park is the right place for birding. The Coquerel’s sifaka is also common here.
- Ankarafantsika – Antananarivo: drive back
After the breakfast, drive back to Antananarivo
- Antananarivo-Andasibe: the evergreen east
After a short tour in the centre of town of Antananarivo, the capital city of Madagascar, we will take the way directly to the east. The small village of Andasibe is located at approximately 140 km of the capital. The east is characterized by its green vegetation. The landscape is decorated by the chain of hills and rice fields, the image of the high plateau of Madagascar. On the way, we will see the daily life of the Malagasy people.
Before the dinner, we will go for an evening hike along the main road.
- Andasibe: Mantadia national park
Today we will visit the National park of Mantadia, and will make a deep exploration through the primary forest, to discover the multiple and extremely interesting fauna and flora of Madagascar. With a little chance we could still find very savage species of lemurs in the forest.
Before the dinner, we will go for a nocturnal hike along the main road.
- Andasibe: Analamazaotra national park
The observation of the Indri- Indri is the high point of the visit of Analamazaotra.
The INDRIS are the greatest species of lemur in the world. Our park local guide will do the best to find these lemurs and show them to us. The INDRIS differ from the other species of lemurs thanks to their three various strong cries, which can be heard within a radius of 3km. Two hours excursion in the park will be rather tiring for each one of us. Other species of lemurs live here such as Diadem Sifaka, lemurs with brown and red belly. The place is also a real paradise for birding.
After the midday rest, we will visit the private reserve of Vakôna. We have here the opportunity of mixing with the lemurs.
