Starting in the capital Antananarivo (Tana), you will head to Miandrivazo where you will board the boat for your 2-3 day ride along the Tsirbihina river taking in its rural sights and bird life. Afterwards drive to the Tsingy de Bemaraha, known for its unique and bizarre limestone pinnacles, and take a short ride along the Manambolo river in a dugout canoe (pirogue). In nearby Kirindy Forest look out for Madagascar's famous lemurs and the fossa, the island's largest predator. Marvel at towering Baobab trees and explore mangroves and harvest your own salt in Tsangajoly. Travel eastwards to Antsirabe and enjoy a city tour by pousse-pousse (colourful rickshaw). Admire the silk production and wooden carving skills in Ambositra, and learn about the customs of the Betsileo tribe. Encounter magnificent lemurs and stupendous canyon landscapes in Isalo National Park. End your Madagascar adventure on the sandy beaches of Ifaty overlooking the Mozambique Channel before flying back to Tana.
