Arrive in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, where you will be met in the morning at the airport or at your hotel, depending on the required collection point. After a brief driving tour around Tana, we will drive to Andasibe through the green and luxuriant vegetation of the east. This first step brings us to the humid part of the country with many primary forests and lakes, and the landscape consists of rice fields, waterfalls, and scarce forest stations. Along the way, we will see villages of the Merina people scattered throughout the rocky mountainside. We stop for lunch at the Reptile & Butterfly farm, finally arriving in Andasibe between 15h00 and 17h00. Check-in to the hotel, and then at approximately 19h00 we enjoy a night walk within the Andasibe area to observe night active lemurs and other nocturnal animals.
After breakfast, we take a morning visit to the Special Reserve of Andasibe, where you will discover the many species dwelling in the forest. In particular, your guide will search for the Indri, the largest lemurs on the island. This 810 ha reserve is unique with its endemic fauna and flora. It contains a wide variety of orchids, canopy, and endemic animals like chameleons, tenrecs, and many birds. In the afternoon, we visit the V.O.I.I.M.A community reserve. This reserve provides a sustainable way of saving the remaining rainforests in the area by creating a livelihood for the local communities through reforestation projects. Here you will also come across a variety of wildlife, ranging from brown lemurs, indri, chameleons, geckos and birds.
Today, we head back to Tana, where your experience comes to an end.
