It is a place for real adventures and true nature-fans
Expedition on the top of Pic d´Ivohibe Adventures into uncharted territory
Pic d´Ivohibe Special Reserve is located south of Andringitra National Park in the southeastern Madagascar. This region is awe-inspiring, with challenging and thrilling hiking terrain. However, just a handful of visitors ever venture into this isolated region. Due to its difficult access and the lack of infrastructure, this pretty isolated Reserve is still very few visited and little known. It can be reached by means of a four-wheel-drive vehicle, though the journey can be challenging. It is a place for real adventures and true nature-fans.
This expedition will take you on the top of Pic d´Ivohibe via altitudes, which varies between 750m and 2060m on the top of Ivohibe Peak. You’ll pass tropical humid rainforest on the eastern side, mountain dense forest on the highlands and grassy savannas on the western part of the Reserve, and – lemurs in the forests.
