Madagascar attracts travellers because of its incredible flora and fauna. It is home to the world's eight Boabab species (six are endemic), 165 species of palm trees and 860 species of orchid, of which 650 are indigenous. The fauna is equally fascinating with 103 species of lemurs, two thirds of the world's chameleon species and 60 of the 300 bird species are endemic to the island. Our 20-day journey begins in the capital of Antananarivo. To the east, Andasibe village is our base for excursions into the lowland and mid-altitude rainforest of Analamazaotra Special Reserve. This is a place to easily spot family groups of Diademed sifaka, Indri indri plus black-and-white ruffed lemurs. We then visit other protected areas including Maromizaha, recently open to the public and enjoy short walks to spot Eastern Ring-tailed mongoose, frogs and chameleons (Calumma malthe). Travelling through terraced farmlands, we arrive in Antsirabe, a colonial spa town in the highlands, surrounded by volcanic lakes. After visits to artisan workshops plus lakeside and mountain walks, 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, the sacred forest of Tsaranoro, westwards of the massif of Andringitra, is a walker's paradise with prairies and open grassland below lunar-like granite massifs. We walk in the canyons and riparian rainforests of Isalo National Park. To the south west, forests of spiny "octopus" trees contrast with ancient baobabs at Zombitse-Vohibasia National Park. At Ifaty and Anakao, we snorkel on coral reefs and visit Tsimanampetsotsa National Park which is famous for its Pink and Dwarf Flamingos. Our tour ends with a flight and final evening back in the capital of Antananarivo.
