Day 1. Antananarivo - Ampefy. We meet at the reception of your hotel between 8-00 and 8-30 before departing to Ampefy which is located at 100km from the capital, in the geographical center of Madagascar. Ampefy is a small borough on the banks of Itasy Lake.  Three of the most famous sites you will get to visit on this tour are "Lake Itasy", "Lily Waterfall" and "Analavory Geyser". Around 9-30 we will be visiting Lemurs' Park which is a private reserve located at 25km from the capital. You will find birds, medicinal plants, reptiles and the main types of lemurs of our island (Black-white ruffed Lemur, Common brown Lemur, Coquerel’s Sifaka, Crowned Sifaka, Eastern Lesser Bamboo Lemur, Mongoose Lemur and Ring-Tailed Lemur). After it we will continue to Ampefy. You will arrive in Ampefy at approximately 12-30, and have the delicious lunch at Kavitaha hotel.

At afternoon relax, resting at fresh air, far from the crowded beaches, discover this small haven of peace. The splendid volcanic landscapes of this region offer some good hikes and fantastic views of the area, very undulating and different from the usual image of the Red Island.  Pirogue tours on the lakes can easily be arranged. You can also take out bicycles. Ampefy with its rolling hills adorned in green, untainted by the peril of mass tourism and overflowing with an extensive range of fauna and flora is exceptionally appealing to nature lovers. Ampefy is an ideal for hiking. The trails lead through plantations, rice fields and farm land. Ampefy and the area Lake Itasy offers many treasures of curious forms. Overnight: Kavitaha hotel, Ampefy

Day 2: Ampefy. We meet at the reception of your hotel after breakfast. To view all the wonders Ampefy offers, need a little stroll to join the Lily waterfall. To reach the legendary waterfall, requires passage over picturesque volcanic hills dotted with quaint little villages made up of red mud houses with thatched roofs typical to the central highland. While going forward, one meets very discrete peasants who are posting a broad smile and full with generosity. After few minutes’ walk, one starts to hear the buzz and the crumpling which becomes increasingly strong: it is the Lily waterfall. The precious beauty of Ampefy is highlighted by the Lily waterfall (Chute de la Lily), that thunders down a staircase of rocky clefts, sparkling in the radiant sunlight and finishing in a tremendous spray that fashions a nebulous mystical aura around her. It pours its water from its 26m elevation which generates a large scum on water. A refreshingly clear pool of fresh mountain water that beckons out to anyone who would dive in and bathe in her coolness. Once you arrive, the most classical panoramic view awaits to take your breath away with the best rapid waters. This waterfall full of legend is well anchored in a splendid site bordered of green grasses very developed by the water evaporation of the waterfall. One can even take few minutes of small bath. Thereafter our driver pick us up and take us to the La Terasse or Chez Jacky hotel restaurant where you will enjoy lunch.

After the waterfall and the Lake Itasy, the stay with Ampefy also makes it possible to enjoy the gushing spectacle offered by the Analavory Geyser. The geyser site counts four geyser springs. It is certainly the most pleasant place of Ampefy. You will find: A natural pool of not very hot water, which is especially for children; The possibility of massages with clay; Two places where water comes out with good pressure, which allows to take a shower, very pleasant if the sun is patting, or after a massage with clay; And a very special tenant...

Then you will travel back to Antananarivo and will be arrival in your hotel at the end of afternoon.
