Experience the diverse environments of northern Madagascar, from the lakes and waterfalls of Montagne d’Ambre National Park to the limestone karsts of Ankarana Reserve, before taking in the warm waters of Nosy Be. You will have the chance to see a wide variety of animals throughout your visit, the most of which are native to Madagascar. Montagne d’Ambre National Park is a beautiful illustration of a montane rainforest. The massif has an altitude range of 850 to 1,475 meters, and it has a microclimate with rainfall that is similar to that of the eastern part of the country. It is one of Madagascar’s protected places with the most visitor-friendly features because to its wide pathways, fascinating flora and fauna, pleasant climate, and easily accessible information. For old or disabled guests, this is a rare opportunity to observe the rainforest and its residents in Madagascar since during the dry season, vehicles may drive right up to the main picnic spot.
During the Adventure you will also visit Ankarana Reserve; This reserve is situated 20 kilometers north of Ambilobe and 70 kilometers south of Antsiranana. In the west, a cliff, in the south, the Mananjeba River, and in the east, Route Nationale 6 between Antsiranana and Ambilobe are its boundaries. A basaltic plain is covered by the Jurassic limestone massif known as Ankarana. The massif is separated by deep, northward-running gorges that are punctured by caves and is heavily eroded and karstic (or “tsingy”). These caverns have an extremely intricate drainage system because of the several underground rivers that flow through them in an east-west direction (into Ambavanankarana Bay), the most significant of which are the Ankarana, Mananjeba, and Besaboba. The massif serves as a crucial hydrological reservoir for nearby residents and their domestic animals during the dry season.
Day 1: On the first day of your Madagascar safari, our a representative will meet you at the airport and drive you to your hotel in Antananarivo, Madagascar’s lovely capital. It stands out from other cities throughout the world with its lively markets, welcoming locals, and ancient town on a hill with freestone churches and historic royal buildings rive in Antananarivo
You will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Diego Suarez, where you will be collected at the airport. We then drive directly to Montagne d’Ambre National Park, which covers 18,200 ha of a prominent volcanic massif and offers striking scenery, rainforest and waterfalls. It is one of Madagascar’s most visited natural attractions. We arrive in the late afternoon. The next day is spent exploring the park on foot. In the park, you will have the chance to see seven species of lemurs, the ring-tailed mongoose and a variety of reptiles including frogs, geckos and chameleons, as well as more than 70 species of birds.
Today, we travel to Ankarana, a protected natural area with karst pinnacles, holy caves, underground rivers, and stunning scenery. Numerous lemurs and intriguing bird species can be found among the rich and diversified flora and fauna. There are several underground rivers and hidden canyons covered in forests that run through and beneath the limestone pinnacles. We will investigate the vast cave network, which features several intriguing bat-filled grottoes.
We’ll have the entire day today to explore the Ankarana natural reserve. Now you will once more get the opportunity to enjoy the reserve’s extraordinarily rich and diverse vegetation and its plentiful wildlife.
Today, we travel to Ankify, a tiny community located next to a white sand beach. From there, we’ll take a boat over to Nosy Be, where you’ll be driven to your hotel. The largest offshore island of Madagascar, Nosy Be, often known as “the island of perfumes,” is a stunning tropical island covered in bougainvillea and palm palms. It would be easy to lose an entire day in Nosy Be just admiring the varying shades of blue in the sky and the sea. The island’s assets include luxuriant flora, pleasant people, and a laid-back Indian Ocean atmosphere in addition to its lovely beaches.
This is a leisurely day in Nosy Be. Optional activities include the following. Visit the Lokobe Reserve, a rainforest reserve where the majority of the indigenous vegetation on Nosy Be is preserved. Lemurs, birds, and chameleons could all be seen. Or take a day trip to Nosy Komba, the island of the lemurs, or Nosy Tanikely, an underwater reserve with a diverse array of marine life, including stunning corals and a wide range of fish, as well as fantastic diving and snorkeling options. Surgeonfish, clownfish, barracuda, manta rays, sea urchins, starfish, eels, anemones, and many other fish may be present. We’ll return to the hotel at the conclusion of the day so you may take advantage of the amenities there.
