Details of the stay: The inevitable - 13 days

Day 1 : Tananarive

Arrival in Tananarive. Walk on the pavés of the high city from Independence Square to the Queen's Palace to embrace the surrounding sacred hills, Fort Voyron, the Zoologique zoological and botanical park, Mahamasina stadium or the Anosy and Mandroseza lakes. Night in Tananarive.

Day 2 : Allée des Baobabs des baobabs

One hour flight for Morondava on the west coast. Transfer of kilometers by road to the legendary alley of baobabs. This is the country's most photographed site with its majestic alignment of three of the seven endemic species of Madagascar. Don't forget to surprise the two amoureux baobabs. Return to Morondava after sunset.

Day 3 : Bekopaka

Departure to the north to reach Belo-sur-Tsiribihina. After three hours of road, lunch and visit of the local market. There are still 90 kilometres of trails to reach Bekopaka, on the other side of the river Manambolo, which runs in ferry or canoe. The national park of Des is nearby. Night in Bekopaka.

Day 4 : De de Bemaraha

Morning walk in the labyrinth of the little Tsingy of Bemaraha, nice taste of the big, then descent into canoes in the afternoon in the steep gorges of the river Manambolo. In the evening, walking in the surrounding forest in search and listening to nocturnal animals, including lemurs with green eyes. Night in Bekopaka.

Day 5 : De de Bemaraha

This is a medieval hike in the Grand Tsingy with ladders, mousquetons and straps to climb this majestic limestone cathedral classified as UNESCO's heritage by UNESCO. Once at the summit you will discover one of the most beautiful geological shows ever produced by nature. Return the afternoon to Morondava.

Day 6 : Tananarive-Nosy Be

Flight for Nosy Be (1 h 30) via Tananarive (1 h). Once you arrive at the airport of Fascène, you can take a tour at Hell-Ville, the head of the archipelago to take part in the old port, or go directly to Ambatokala or Andilana to ask his suitcase and take advantage of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

Day 7 : Nosy Be

At Nosy Be, there are, of course, beaches but it is also possible to spend some good time visiting a distillerie-ylang distillery (a tree of the Annonacées family, whose distilled flower is used in perfumery) or by logging in the Lokobe nature reserve, to the southeast of the island, to meet lemurs, chameleon and large reptiles.

Day 8 : Nosy Snorkel

One hour's boat from Nosy Be is the island of Nosy Snorkel, as a giant aquarium for snorkeling or diving. The coral barrier is populated with turtles, clown fish, groupers, barracuda and other fun moray morays in light water. Beaches are an invitation to bathing. No accommodation on site.

Day 9 : Tananarive-Sainte-Marie

Return flight for Tananarive (1 h 30) before returning to the plane in the direction of Sainte-Marie (1 h flying) which quietly wet off the east coast. Once you're on the tiny airport located all the way south of the island, hard not to fall in love with this little piece of land.

Day 10 : Sainte-Marie

The main attraction of Sainte-Marie is the great spectacle of humpback whales that come to reproduce or put down each year between July and September in the canal separating the small island from the Great Island. The females will then leave in groups with their calves to the southern seas, well-escorted by the males.

Day 11 : Sainte-Marie

In addition to the inescapable whale release, Sainte-Marie offers many activities for those who do not want to dwell on the beautiful beaches surrounding the island. Snorkeling, diving, visit of the pirate cemetery, mountain biking... The Isle aux Mats, which has been accessed by canoe from the south point, is also an unmistakable curiosity.

Day 12 : Tananarive

Flight to Tananarive to avoid the endless boat return and then to the bush-brousse that would cause you to lose all day. Once back in the capital, visit the Marché market, to the north east of the city centre, and the covered Marché market in the lower town to make full memories. Last night in Tananarive.

Day 13 : Tananarive

Return flight by taking advantage of the artisan market of the Dyke on the airport road.
