Sambirano Cocoa Cycling tour

It is not a difficult cycling tour through the cocoa region - 4 days/3 nights. This tour is ideal for nature enthusiast and chocolate lovers alike.

The Sambirano region nestled in the hollow of a green between sea and mountain, will enchant you with its peaceful atmosphere and its paths with large trees. In the heart of huge plantations of cocoa, coffee, pepper, vanilla, ylang-ylang and vetiver, immerse yourself in the valley of perfumes, or off the beaten track, near an exuberant nature and a population with an unparalleled smile. Guaranteed immersion in rural areas, here all within lush landscapes adorned with springs and forest trails.

1th day - Bike tour to Antanambao. After breakfast you will start your bike tour (50km) to the village of Antanambao, located at the banks of Ambahatra river in the Sambirano Valley. You will bike through many cocoa, pepper and coffee plantations as well as cross several rivers by pirogue (small wooden canoe). In Antanambao you will stay at the simple, but cosy house of the cocoa farmer Issouf. For recharging batteries, the farmer will turn on a generator in the evening hours. A jump into the nearby, very clear Ambahatra river will wash off the dust and heat of the day. Throughout your stay, Issouf's wife will indulge you with delicious Malagasy meals.
