Madagascar is home to some of the world’s most unique flora and fauna including lemurs, chameleons, orchids and baobab trees. Our journey begins in the capital of Antananarivo. To the east in Andasibe, is our base for excursions into the lowland and mid-altitude rainforest of Andasibe-Mantadia National Park. We enjoy morning walks to spot lemurs, Eastern Ring-tailed mongoose, frogs and chameleons. Travelling through terraced farmlands, we arrive in Antsirabe, a highland town surrounded by volcanic lakes. After lakeside walks and visits to artisan workshops, we continue to Ranomafana National Park. This montane rainforest is home to lemurs, chameleons and almost half of Madagascar’s bird species. For a contrast, Andringitra National Park is a walker’s paradise with prairies and open grassland below lunar-like granite massifs. We walk in the canyons and riparian rainforests of Ranohira Isalo National Park, then, to the south, forests of spiny “octopus” trees contrast with ancient baobabs. At Ifaty and Anakao, we snorkel on coral reefs and visit Tsimanampetsotsa National Park which is famous for its Pink and Dwarf Flamingos, before we return to the capital.
