ITINERARY IDEA

Day 1

Meal Basis: Bed & Breakfast

Antananarivo is Madagascar’s capital city, perched on top of a mountain range close to several nature reserves, including Tsingy de Bemaraha, with its fantastical limestone spikes. Founded in 1625, it has a rich historical heritage that is complemented by scenic landscapes traversed with a multitude of hiking routes. 

Day 2 - 4: Andasibe-Mantadia

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

A place of great beauty and biodiversity, Andasibe-Mantadia National Park stretches across 154 square kilometres, and is now divided into two distinct sections – the smaller ‘Perinet’ Reserve to the south and the larger Parc National de Mantadia to the north. The region is swathed with thick tropical rainforests – made up of lush ferns, tangled lianas, hundreds of orchid species and myriad other jungle flora – teeming with a diverse array of endemic wildlife. You’ll know you’ve arrived when you hear the peculiar call of the Indri, the largest living lemur in existence, which can reach up to one metre in height.

Day 5 - 7: Berenty

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

Set in southern Madagascar, the Berenty Reserve is a small private forest along the Mandrake River. This reserve is ideal for bird enthusiasts as it attracts a wide range of endemic bird species. For visitor convenience, the Berenty Reserve has an accommodation establishment set in the forest along with forest trails to discover this region.

Day 8 - 11: Nosy Be

Meal Basis: Full Board

Nosy Be’s is Madagascar’s biggest and most popular tourist destination and it’s easy to understand why – located off Madagascar’s northwestern coast, this small island is blessed with exquisite sand beaches, glittering volcanic lakes and diverse flora and fauna. What’s more, despite its popularity, Nosy Be has remained refreshingly unspoilt and free of rampant development, with low-key beach bungalows more the order of the day here than glitzy commercial resorts. Most visitors are content to do very little except relax on the idyllic beaches, go swimming or snorkelling in the calm azure waters and enjoy seafood feasts at oceanfront restaurants, but if you fancy a bit of sightseeing, it’s worth paying a visit to the bazaar in Hell-ville – where you can pick up samples of the fragrant spices for Nosy Be is nicknamed ‘The Perfume Island’ – and exploring the lush rainforests of the Lobeke nature reserve. Coral reefs skirting the coast offer phenomenal scuba diving opportunities, while a peppering of surrounding islets make for enchanting day trips.

ABOUT ISLANDS AND BEACHES

Whilst Madagascar is most famed for its legendary unique wildlife and scenery, the islands and beaches of Madagascar rival most areas of Africa and the Indian Ocean, and are superb for relaxing after time exploring the flora and fauna of the island.

In many areas you can combine time relaxing with wildlife viewing, diving, snorkelling and even whale watching. The reefs are teeming with tropical fish and turtles, and dolphins are also often seen in certain areas. The gorgeous sandy beaches are a real must in Madagascar, as even if you are not a beach person, there is plenty to keep you occupied in these beautiful surroundings.
