During the course of the morning you travel to Tsarasaotra which means bird‘s island, a small green oasis in the north of the city. The park is a refuge for many birds that can be easily watched and photographed here – among them 14 endangered species that only occur in Madagascar.

After visiting Tsarasaotra Park, we will drive along a scenic road to Andasibe, base for discovering the Mantadia National Park, a journey of about 4 hours. Here the adventure really starts. You will notice that the landscape changes. The road in comparison to many Malagasy roads is in excellent condition but with many uphills and downhills, many curves. In general, it is a beautiful landscape, composed of small villages, rice paddies, tropical plants and forest.

En-route we will stop at a farm specializing in Madagascan reptiles and butterflies, before arriving at our lodge. You visit the exotic farming centre of Mr. Pereyras, Marozevo, where you will see chameleon species of Madagascar, butterflies, lizards, snakes and other interesting animals.

You’ll see them jumping from tree to tree with incredible agility despite their size and above all, you’ll hear them scream. Our guides help you to find the indri and almost always they'll find a family of them. Also 'Woolly Lemurs' and 'Brown Lemurs' are frequently seen. Furthermore there are chameleons, various very special frogs and many species of birds including Couas. The tour will largely be along well-trodden paths, but to see lemurs you will occasionally need to leave the path and embark on a little scrambling and climbing.

In the afternoon, we will head off on the next part of the adventure. We’ll spend the time visiting the great park of Mantadia, few kilometers north of where we are staying. We will do a circuit of about 4 hours, to meet groups of lemurs as the Indri, the Diadem sifaka and the Bamboo lemur. This circuit is also very spectacular for its landscapes we’ll see waterfalls and rivers surrounded by strikingly beautiful tropical plants. The path is pretty good, but with some hills.

Mahambo. Bounty Island Experience and Surf destination

Today we are starting an exciting adventure from your hotel in the city of Toamasina. To relax from our escapades on the East coast of Madagascar, enjoy the tranquility and charm of the seaside resort of Mahambo. This fishing village has kept its authenticity.

We now get the opportunity to relax looking out onto the azure blue seas of the Indian Ocean... This place deserves to have you stay here as long as possible. Mahambo is an extremely small paradise preserved, hemmed with huge almost virgin beaches and coves but easily accessible. There are many recreational sports including surfing in the company of fishermen and their sailing canoes. It’s an ideal place to relax in peace.

For restless ones among you, why not to take advantage of the rolling waves and thrill of surfing (if you are not already a surfer, this is a memorable place to learn). Mahambo is a small coastal town and is still a relatively new destination on the East Coast.  After the opening of the first school of Surf, this small town has become a destination for surfers.

Or why not try your hand at sea kayaking? Whilst in Mahambo, you will be able to enjoy your time at your leisure. In the evenings you will be able to enjoy fresh seafood and cold beers in one of the local restaurants. Wherever you go, you will receive the warmest greetings from the residents of Mahambo.

Mahambo – Soanirana Ivongo – Manompana

This morning, we drive to the small harbor town Soanirana Ivongo, where we will shop the groceries and drinks for the next days. We take the National Road, which is an entire show.

RN5a starts or better to say: what is left from RN5a. You really cannot call it a street, not even a road. When we leave the asphalt road at “Soanirana Ivongo” on the first ferry of RN5, we will get the experience of real dirt track! So hard to believe that it can still be called “National Road”… when the hourly average is close to 10 km/hour. We can observe the daily life of residents during a trip on three ferries, moving in perfect disorganization.

This track dominates beautiful sea shores, gets lost on beaches, and allows you to cross (by means of ferries) rivers and mouthpieces to reach places simply magical and populated with many birds.

After lunch we will have a walk to The ADEFA protected area of Manompana and bathe in the waterfall. An hour chaotic trail will lead to the forest where we will walk and discover the biodiversity of the reserve managed by the Ambodiriana ADEFA (Association of Defense of the Forest Ambodiriana).

Manompana – Antanambe - Mananara-Nord Biosphere Reserve

It’s gonna get wild!  On the way, we have to cross several rivers on rickety wooden bridges and improvised ferries. For some of those “ferries”, we have to bring our own gasoline… Time and time again, we will have to push our cars manually out of the mud together. Of course you’re on the road with well-equipped 4×4.

Antanambe - it is the door in the untouched and secluded world of Mananara-Nord Biosphere Reserve. The Mananara park is classified as "Biosphere Reserve, by UNESCO".

Today we will make the hike for one-day in the Mananara-Nord National Park. You can choose: The circuits established are longer than in other National Parks and take almost the whole day. The Verezanantsoro and the Ivontaka circuits are 15 to 20 km trails going up through the tropical forest and some vanilla and clove plantations looking for lemurs, birds and reptiles.

You will also see a multitude of birds, reptiles, and batrachians which live together in a rich vegetation.

If paradise exists, it must not be very far from these enchanting landscapes of Madagascar! The particularity of the North Mananara Biosphere Reserve is to be composed of a lowland wet forest and a coral reef. On the land side, well-equipped paths lead to the encounter of a fauna and flora of an extreme biodiversity. The rocky coasts present their collection of living corals, all immersed in translucent waters where abounding “coral browsers” fishes.

Mananara Nord shelters a remarkable variety of fauna. Small mammals are especially well represented: 17 rodents and 13 lemur species live in these humid forests, such as aye-aye, eastern woolly lemur, brown mouse lemur and the biggest of all lemurs, the indri indri. The indri in this reserve are much darker than the other groups living further south, making spotting them a little bit easier and extremely fascinating.

Mananara Nord is also home to 77 bird species: including Red-tailed Vanga, Helmet Vanga and Madagascar Kestrel, as well as 21 reptiles and 8 amphibian species. The flora is also exceptionally diverse, as more than 1200 different plants have been recorded. Palm trees (47 species) and tropical flowers including some local endemic orchids are representative of this magnificent forest.

After a night in Antanambe, it’s time to enjoy marine nature. Today we reach by motor boat to the island “Nosy Antafana”, an island of dreams in the Indian Ocean, that locates the marine park of the same name.

Nosy Antafana which is a marine national park is far and the most beautiful thing you will ever see. Untouched coral reefs, mangroves, giant fruit bats, and sea grasses where dugongs and sea turtles frequently visit are among the draws of this place.

After lunch, we will take the boat trip on the Mananara River. Transportation in the area makes extensive use of the river, and the river is a tourist attraction in its own right. We will admire the plantations and villages from our boat. Due to its humid tropical climate, the Mananara region is conducive to the cultivation of exotic fruits, but also spices and aromatic plants. As in many areas of the East Coast, the majority of the population gives themselves to the cultivation of vanilla, cloves, lychees, papayas, pepper, and sugar cane... The life of the inhabitants agrees with the seasons of cultures. You will appreciate the walks in these plantations where you will meet the population in their daily activities. Some plantations mix with forests and offer an exceptional landscape, especially during the harvest period.
