CUSTOMIZE THIS TOUR

This tour invites you to a real change of scenery punctuated by discoveries and encounters with local populations. Beyond the rich biodiversity, the luxuriance of the East coast, the various modes of transport used as the small train of the cliffs, the motor boat … constitute so many calls to a trip off the beaten track.

Alternating anarchically lagoons and streams, the canal is lined with plantations producing vanilla, cocoa, cloves and coffee with its milky flowers. Your sense of smell will be fulfilled. Sliding on this aquatic mirror, you will come across “elephant ears”, fishermen, mangroves, forests, villages … and sometimes, pirogues overloaded with goods that feed towns and villages. A mora mora trip as we say in Madagascar and essentially contemplative.

This tour will allow you to enjoy a bivouac in the middle of pandanus and ravinalas and discover the Palmarium. This private reserve, at the level of Akanin’ny Nofy, is aptly named “Dream Nest”. Because on this peninsula of 35 hectares, you will observe different varieties among more than 100 000 palm trees and will be able to look for the different species of lemurs which evolve in complete freedom.
