The Lost Continent

There is no more unique landscape on earth in which to discover exotic wildlife than on the isolated island of Madagascar. We explore the rainforests, nature reserves and national parks in search of the many species of endangered lemur. We travel from the Malagasy capital 'tana\ across volcanic lakes and sandstone rock formations to the golden shores of the Indian Ocean.

Trip highlights

  • Andasibe Reserve - Track the Indri lemur and other remarkable wildlife
  • Antsirabe - Walk along a stunning crater lake in Tritriva.
  • Highland Scenery - Rice paddies, villages and colourful markets.
  • Ranomafana - Walk in the rainforest and observe various species of lemurs, chameleons and amphibians.
  • Isalo National Park - Explore the 'Grand Canyon' of Madagascar and meet troops of Ring-tailed lemurs.
Accommodation grade:
Standard
Our standard, mid-range accommodation offers a good level of service, often with other amenities such as a restaurant, bar, garden or swimming pool. Generally rooms will be comfortable with en suite facilities.
Trip pace:
Full on
Full on paced trips are for travellers who like their holidays packed with activities and experiences, moving on quickly from place to place with lots of early starts and long, busy days. Some may find them tiring, but others get a buzz from packing their precious holiday-time as chock-a-block full of new experiences as possible!
Group Size:
10 - 16
Maximum group size ranges from between 6 to 20 people, depending on the type of trip, the transport and accommodation used and activities included. We rarely have groups that are smaller than five or six people and the average is 12 people plus an Explore leader.

Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join tour Antananarivo

Arrive in Antananarivo. The city is cheerfully stacked on the sloping sides of the Highlands. This medieval capital is affectionately known as 'Tana' and enjoys a pleasant climate (1350m).

Day 2 - Drive to Andasibe Reserve, view wildlife

Today we will drive to Andasibe village otherwise known as Perinet. Although only eight square kilometres, Andasibe Reserve boasts nine species of Lemur, including the largest, the Indri indri, whose piercing voice can be heard throughout the forest. Colourful chameleons and many birds can also be seen as we spend the afternoon walking trails in this beautiful forested reserve. There will also be a nocturnal walk in search of wildlife including mouse and dwarf lemur, sleeping chamelons, frogs and insects.

Accommodation: Feon'ny Ala Bungalows(or similar)

Standard Lodge

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 3 - Visit to National Park or Lemur Island, looking for Black and White Ruffed Lemur

This morning we have a chance to do some birdwatching before making our main wildlife walk in the Analamazoatra Reserve. We hope to find the Indri Indri again and to hear their haunting morning group communication calls. Other lemur species we might see include the lesser bamboo lemur, diademed sifaka, brown lemur, red-bellied lemur and sleeping eastern woolly lemur. This is also a good site for birding and spotting chameleons and sometimes snakes or tenrec. In the afternoon there will be optional visit to a private reserve with more opportunities to spot lemurs at close quarters, or else a visit to the village of Andasibe itself.

Accommodation: Feon'ny Ala Bungalows(or similar)

Standard Lodge

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 4 - Drive to Antsirabe, explore the colonial architecture and churches

Heading south we reach the spa town of Antsirabe, the coolest place in Madagascar. Its climate made it a favourite spot with European missionaries and their influence can still be seen in the colonial architecture and churches. Antsirabe is also the agricultural and administrative centre of Madagascar and is also regarded as the \ pousse-pousse\ capital.

Accommodation: Camelia Hotel(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 5 - Lake Tritiva; drive to Ambositira, Malagasy meal and local dancing

This morning we drive to the volcanic Lake of Tritriva. Local myths and taboos have grown up around this mysterious lake which seems to have many guises, changing colour from one day to the next. We have the opportunity to walk round the lake before driving to Ambositra in the afternoon. We'll visit some of the craft shops, which produce carvings of Malagasy life, furniture and detailed marquetry work. We shall stay at a local development guest house, and there may be the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Malagasy meal and see a folk dancing display this evening. Although the accommodation we use on this night stop is modest and of lower standard than what is provided throughout the rest of the trip, by staying here we directly support an important base for the development of health projects, agriculture, water supply and the empowerment of women within the local community. Any school supplies you may like to donate such as notebooks and pencils would be very gratefully received and passed on to the local children. The accommodation is dormitory style, simple but clean, with shared facilities. Hot water is not available.

Accommodation: Voteta Bungalows(or similar)

Simple Community House
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 6 - Scenic drive to Ranomafana National Park

The drive to Ranomafana takes up most of the day, however the winding road passes varied landscapes of rugged ridges, huge boulders and rural villages surrounded by rice paddies. En route we will stop in Ialatsara for lunch. In 1987 in Ranomafana National Park a new species of lemur named the Golden Bamboo was found. There are many hidden waterfalls and the Namorona river flows through some impressive gorges, flanked on either side by tropical rainforest.

Accommodation: Centrest Sejour Hotel(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 7 - In Ranomafana National Park, searching for Lemurs and birdlife

This morning will will enter the park for an early morning walk, but you may choose to do some optional birdwatching before this. Most lemur species are endangered, the last survivors of a once abundant family of primates, now confined to pockets of forest and bush throughout Madagascar. Deforestation has taken a heavy toll on these arboreal creatures - about 80 species remain. With luck we may see some of the species found in the park including Red-Bellied lemur, Grey Bamboo lemur, Milne-Edwards\ sifaka and perhaps the Black and White Ruffed lemur and the extremely rare Golden Bamboo lemur. We may also spot the Malagasy boa constrictor, chameleons, the black parrot, cuckoo roller and many other birds. In the afternoon there will be an additional optional walk within the park with a chance to spot the species not already seen during the morning.

Accommodation: Centrest Sejour Hotel(or similar)

Day 8 - Drive to Isalo National Park (Ranohira)

Returning to the main road this morning, we continue south via the regional capital of Fianarantsoa, the academic centre of Madagascar. Leaving the highland plateau and descending through superb mountain scenery to the plains we pause at Ambalavao paper workshop before arriving at Anja Community Reserve. Here we have the chance to watch troupes of ring-tailed lemur among the granite boulders. Continuing south the pine trees thin out and the fertile soil of the highlands gives way to drier savannah, cactus, termite mounds, and the dust of the midsouth. We finally reach our destination late in the afternoon. Ranohira, situated on the edge of the Isalo National Park.

Accommodation: Hotel Relais de la Reine(or similar)

Day 9 - Isalo National Park, admire Madagascar's Grand Canyon

One of the highlights of our trip is Madagascar's \ Grand Canyon\ in Isalo National Park. Dervla Murphy, in her book \ Muddling through Madagascar\ describes it thus - 'Landscapes that are literally incredible. You don't believe it. You think you\ re hallucinating. How can wind and water have done all this?'. Natural erosion has produced fantastic canyons and bizarre outcrops of wind-blasted sandstone. Sparse dry deciduous forest, including species of dwarf-like baobab and succulents, is found in the park. We plan to walk to a natural oasis pool known as \ Piscine Naturelle\ and see tombs of the Bara people. This afternoon you have the opportunity to take an optional walk within the park to Namaza to see the Cascade des Nymphes.

Day 10 - Drive to Toliara, through the spiny desert, stopping at Mahafaly Tombs

This morning we continue our journey south. The temperature rises as we lose height and head for the coast, crossing the savannah plain, dotted with herds of Zebu cattle. The south of Madagascar is largely desert, and weird cactus-like plants unique to the island smother the land and make up the vast areas of so called 'spiny desert\ . Close to Sakaraha is the Zombitse National Park. Here we will walk near the remarkable dry forest which is home to many birds, including black parrots, the Madagascar buzzard and the cuckoo roller. The very rare Apperts\ Greenbull is also here. As we continue our drive, we'll pass by a number of fascinating Mahafaly Tombs before reaching the town of Toliara once an important port of call for Dutch and English ships plying the trade routes during the 16th and 17th centuries.

The rich turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean beckon from our beach hideaway. Please note: due to limited space on the boat we kindly request that you take a smaller overnight bag to Anakao. Your main luggage will be stored in Toliara.

The island is still considered a sacred site for the local Vezo people and with its reefs and colonies of Red-tailed tropicbirds, it is an ideal place to soak up the tropical atmosphere of this island paradise, and an opportunity to do some snorkelling.

Day 14 - Visit Ambohimanga, oldest palace in country; visit to Lemur park

This morning we head to the oldest palace in Madagascar situated on Ambohimanga, a forested hill, north of Antananarivo. It was from this fortress that the Merina, a highland tribe, first established an effective administration and military command under the King Andrianampoinamerina. The fort includes the original king's hut and later European buildings. From here we have magnificent views over the fertile rice fields below. We will then continue on to the Lemur Park which is located approximately 25km outside Tana. Nine species of lemurs coming from different regions of Madagascar wander freely in this botanical garden covering an area of five hectares of small forest situated by the Katsoaka River. The park also contains many species of the flora of Madagascar. In the afternoon you may have a chance for some last minute sightseeing or shopping in Tana before our final night of the tour.
