Once in Madagascar, take the opportunity and explore the remote southwest of the island on our Southern Flamingo Package. Lake Tsimanampetsostsa National Park and the Sacred Island of Nosy Be are just two highlights during your journey. The package is a perfect add-on tour to our 1000 Views of Madagascar.

Tour Highlights:

Tsimanampetsotsa National Park – First protected in 1927 for its endemic flora and fauna, it was officially recognised as a national park in 1966.  The park offers several walks of different durations. There are an estimated 88 species of birds of which 35 are endemic to Madagascar, as well as the 4 species of lemurs.

Anakao – A picturesque coastal fishing town on the southwest coast of Madagascar.

Nosy Ve – A flat uninhabited island located off the southwest coast of Madagascar. Several ancient tombs from French settlers can still be found here. It has also served as a hideout for pirates as well as a slave departure port.

Tulear – Apart from several interesting churches, most of Tulear’s remaining buildings are fairly nondescript, as is its setting against a backdrop of mangroves and mudflats. The surrounding Madagascar area, however, offers numerous attractions and Madagascar highlights including good beaches, diving and snorkeling, surfing, kite surfing and windsurfing at Ifaty to the north and Anakao to the south; intriguing topography; interesting flora and fauna; and remote villages.

Alternatively optional excursions such as game fishing, snorkeling can also be enjoyed (these must be booked in advance).
Today we set out for a day excursion to the Tsimanampetsotsa National Park, where you will have the chance to see 2 of the 4 species of lemurs (2 being nocturnal), the very rare Grandidier’s mongoose (endemic to this area only), the Radiated Tortoise, the species of blind fish that lives in the underground caves but most famously, the colony of Greater Flamingoes.
Today you will visit the tranquil island of Nosy Ve – a sacred location to the Vezo people, where each year locals sacrifice zebu according to traditional rituals. The island is home to the world’s most southern all-year breeding colony of red-tailed tropicbirds, which attracts ornithologists from all around the world. With excellent sightings of these birds, coupled with stunning white beaches and excellent snorkeling, this island visit will be a highlight of your tour.
