Day 1: London to Antananarivo

Day 2: Antananarivo to Andasibe
This morning you will be collected and transferred 3hrs north by 4×4 to the eastern rainforests of Andasibe to spend 3 nights at Vakona Forest Lodge, a firm family run Sundowner favourite with a beautiful location in the forest and its own wildlife packed reserve. This evening enjoy a nocturnal forest walk. Remember, this is just a starting point idea to give you a flavour of what we can do. All our holidays are uniquely designed for each individual client. Contact us on 01273 923100 or email@example.com to start designing yours.
Days 3 & 4: Andasibe
Two full days with your local specialist guide to explore the Analamazaotra Reserve, one of the best areas in the country for the largest Indri Indri lemur, the Vakona Reserve, the Mitsinjo Community Reserve and the lush primary rainforest of Mantadia National Park. You will also visit Lemur Island for a close encounter with these amazing creatures! See our Lemur guide.
Day 5: Andasibe to Antananarivo
After a final morning in the rainforest you will drive back to the capital to spend 1 night at Lokanga Boutique Hotel, a charming 6 room town house close to the Queens Palace with amazing views across the city and very friendly service. This afternoon you will enjoy a guided tour of the city.
Day 6: Antananarivo to the Amber Mountain National Park
Returning early to the airport this morning you will fly to Diego Suarez in the very north of Madagascar to continue your wildlife adventure.
On arrival you will be met and transferred to Joffre Ville, the gateway to Amber Mountain National Park, to spend 2 nights at the Litchi Tree, a 6 room owner run guesthouse offering lovely accommodation, hospitality and food. Too much travel? Ask us for an itinerary that allows you to see Madagascar in a more relaxed style. Call 01273 923100.
Day 7: Amber Mountain National Park
Full day with your local specialist guide to explore Amber Mountain National Park. A beautiful region of primary rainforest this area is excellent for hiking with lots of waterfalls to discover and although it doesn’t offer the varied lemur sightings like the eastern rainforests it does still offer 7 different species plus 60 different reptile species including the leaf-tailed gecko and the tiny Brookesia chameleon.
Day 8: Amber Mountain National Park to Ankarana Reserve
Today you will drive south, stopping en route at the surreal red tsingy formations, heading to the eastern side of Ankarana Reserve to spend 1 night at the Relais des Ankarana, a rustic little guesthouse, owner run by a local Malagasy family and perfectly located about 100m from the park gates.
This afternoon you will enter the reserve with your local guide to search the dry forests and vast tsingy formations for crowned lemurs, Sanford’s brown lemur and northern sportive lemurs.
Day 9: Ankarana Reserve
Heading back into the eastern side of the reserve this morning you will definitely need your Indiana Jones hat and whip as you explore some of the incredible cave network within the reserve, containing 14 species of bat, endemic blind shrimp and the only cave-dwelling crocodiles in the world!
You will then continue to the western side of the park to spend 1 night at Iharana Bush Camp, a beautiful rustic eco lodge with funky traditional cottages and an amazing location overlooking a lake and huge tsingy mastiff – a great spot for a “Sundowner Moment”!
Day 10: Ankarana Reserve to the Nosy Be Archipelago
After a final morning hike through the tsingy you will get on the road, heading south to the port of Ankify where your boat will be waiting to transfer you across to the Nosy Be Archipelago, heading to Nosy Sakatia where you will spend 5 nights at the owner run Sakatia Lodge.
A true Sundowner favourite the lodge is relaxed, the staff are very friendly, it has beautiful beaches and amazing diving run by the owner Jose.
Days 11 to 14: Nosy Sakatia, Nosy Be Archipelago
Four full days to relax and enjoy. As one of the best diving spots in Madagascar and a house reef only 400m away from the lodge, the snorkelling and diving is highly recommended and you can also enjoy kayaking, island excursions, hikes and a host of adventure activities on neighbouring Nosy Be. Want more days on the beach? We can tailor this holiday idea to you. Call us on 01273 923100 now!
Day 15: Nosy Be Archipelago to the UK
Saying goodbye to Jacque and the Sakatia team you will be transferred to Nosy Be Airport for your flight back to the Antananarivo. On arrival a day room at Bois Vert will be available (if required) before you will connect with your International flight back to the UK (via Paris).

“Going away feeds my soul, I love finding places that make me want to stop for a moment and breathe it all in. It’s about creating memories that stand out in my mind, an escape from routine.”
“I love to travel so I can turn my imagination into reality, instead of thinking about how places might be, I want to see them as they truly are.”
