    Itinerary

    Day 1Antananarivo

    Your island adventure begins in the city centre and capital, Antananarivo. The bustling capital of Madagascar is known as Tana to many travellers. With an open schedule today, just relax, settle in, or wander through the city’s diverse architectural history. 

    Our guide will meet you at the airport and will take you to the hotel. If you arrive early on the day, contact us at Fosa Travel for information on any attraction that you can visit in town.

    Accommodation: La Villette (Or similar)

    Day 2Antananarivo - Andasibe

    Day two sets off heading east where you’ll quickly get up close and personal with the island’s vibrant array of wildlife. Chameleons, lizards, frogs, snakes, butterflies, and Sifaka Lemurs are only the short list of creatures you’ll see first-hand at the Peyrieras Madagascar Exotic Reserve.

    With so many more species of lemur, like Indri and ring-tailed, we will next head farther out to Andasibe, the world-renowned lemur watching paradise.

    In the afternoon, we will visit Parc Mitsinjo, where you can find chameleons, snakes, birds and most importantly the biggest lemur species, Indri.

    When night falls, perhaps your true inner-explorer can come alive as we’ll hike through the forest to catch a glimpse of night lemurs and other nocturnal friends.

    Accommodation: Vakona Forest Lodge (or similar)

    Day 3Andasibe

    We can’t see it all in just one day, though. Spend hours more wandering through Andasibe National Park on Day 3. Unique, rare, and endangered all describe the species of animals you’ll see here, including 11 different lemur species.

    In the afternoon, the wildlife adventure continues as we visit Lemurs Island and Crocodile Park. There, you’ll walk among flora and fauna unlike anywhere else on Earth.

    Accommodation: Vakona Forest Lodge (or similar)

    Day 4Andasibe - Antsirabe

    After a couple of days in nature, Day 4 combines travel and tour. We will depart Andasibe early in the morning, heading inland 7.5 hours through beautiful highlands and valleys to the colorful and classic city of Antsirabe. The French called it ‘The city of water’ for its thermal springs.

    Once there, Madagascar’s iconic rickshaws will wheel you around to all the top sites.

    Accommodation: Royal Palace (or similar)

    Day 5Antsirabe - Morondava

    Famous for its river delta, and but even more for Baobab trees, our excursion next heads to Morondava on the west coast of Madagascar.

    We’ll leave early in the morning for the 9-hour drive, with the afternoon free to discover the scenic tree lines of Baobab Avenue and soak in the sunset on the coastal horizon.

    Accommodation: Renala Sable D’Or (or similar)

    Day 6 Morondava

    Down the river delta of Morondava on the morning of Day 6, we’ll sail through the mangroves and visit the fisherman village.

    From a boat on the water in the morning to a trek through the forest in the afternoon, we’ll see Fosa, Lemurs, and dozens of other animal species at Kirindy Forest.

    Accommodation: Renala Sable D’Or (or similar)

    Day 7 Morondava - Antsirabe

    After a restful night’s sleep at one of Morondava’s cozy hotels, our tour will return to Antsirabe on the seventh day, approximately a 9 hour trip. Along the way, view the landscape from seaside to highland looking out the window of the air-conditioned bus. Midway, we’ll stop for lunch at Miandrivazo, which is considered the hottest place in Madagascar. Upon arrival, the evening of day seven is about rest, so settle in to your comfy hotel in Antsirabe.

    Accommodation: Royal Palace (or similar)

    Day 8 Antsirabe - Antananarivo

    The final leg of our journey sends us back to the city where it all began. After a 3.5-hour drive through beautiful and wavy central highlands, we’ll have the day to tour the famous sites of Antananarivo. Highlights of the tour on Day 8 include the Queen’s Palace, Anosy Lake, as well as the markets and French Colonial buildings of Independence Avenue.

    While the island is ripe with natural beauty, an extra special tour connects you to Antananarivo’s architecture and history at the oldest train station in town, Gare Soarano.

    Day 9 Antananarivo

    Just as the tour began, Day 9 is yours for the taking. Heading to the airport later in the day? Contact us at Fosa Travel for information on the best remaining tour spots.

    Say farewell, for now, to Madagascar; a genuine island and a world apart. What a grand adventure it’s been!
