Private lodge tour, which takes you from the waterfalls and lakes of Montagne d’Ambre National Park to the underground caves of Northern Madagascar while staying at the luxurious Ankarana Lodge and Ravintsara Wellness Hotel. Starting and ending in Antananarivo – 8 Days
Antananarivo – Antananarivo is Madagascar’s bustling and boisterous capital city. Affectionately known as “Tana” it is the entry and exit point for most visitors to the country. It’s a great a place to learn more about Madagascar’s history with visits to the Queen’s palace and the Royal Hills of Ambohimanga, which can be explored on a cycle tour.
Montagne d’Ambre National Park – Montagne D’ambre National Park (Amber Mountain National Park) in northern Madagascar is located 35 km from Diégo, in the Antsiranana province, and 1000 km from the capital city. Wander through isolated montane rainforest of 18,200 hectares at an altitude ranging between 800 and 1.475 metres.
Ankarana National Park – Lemurs might be Madagascar’s biggest draw card, but cave-dwelling crocodiles makes Ankarana National Park exceptional. The Ankarana reserve boasts limestone caves, forest-filled canyons and a network of underground rivers. It is said to have the highest density of primates of any forest in the world such as big, green, leaf-tailed geckos, the world’s only known cave-dwelling crocodiles, a good mix of lemur species, and the night active lepilemurs in tree cavities.
Nosy Be – With an area of 321 km2, Nosy Be (‘Big Island’) is the largest of Madagascar’s offshore islands. It’s often billed in tourist brochures as the ‘Ile aux Parfums’ and, like the nearby Comoros islands, is a centre for the production of perfume essence from the ylang-ylang tree. Other island products include sugar cane, coffee, vanilla, pepper, saffron and other spices – making the markets in Nosy Be fantastic and rich with bargains!
