Are you a fan of beautiful scenery, strange creatures, and outdoor exploration?
Whence comes your lack of experience in Madagascar?
A canoe ride through the Manambolo River to caves and possibly encounters with lemurs are just some of what you can expect on this nine-day adventure through Africa's remote island paradise, which takes you through Bekopaka's famed Baobab Alley, the Kirindy Reserve, the Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve, and Bekopaka's famous Baobab Reserve.
One of the strangest places on the planet, Madagascar is a wonder to behold.
This journey from Antananarivo includes a visit to two of Madagascar's most popular national parks.
You'll get a chance to witness lemurs, chameleons, orchids, and more in the wild twice during your trip to Andasibe-Mantadia National Park and Vakona Private Reserve, both of which are located deep in the countryside.
We'll take you on a tour of two palaces today. Antananarivo is a half-day excursion away from Ambohimanga Rova.
This is where Ruler Andrianampoinimerina, the first Malagasy king to unify the nation, was born. Intriguing stories of murder, conquest, and intrigue are told by local guides who are fluent in a variety of languages, and the beautiful environment makes the trip worthwhile.
Until the last queen was exiled by the French colonial authorities, the palace was used as a vacation house by successive members of the royal family. A number of interesting artifacts remain from this time.
Return to Tana for a city-view lunch, and then tour the second palace, the Rova Manjakamiadana, afterward.
The royal family lived in this palace until they were exiled.
It was set ablaze in 1995 for political reasons and is currently being renovated, but it has an interesting history and is in an outstanding location with incredible views of the city and rice fields for as far as the eye can see. It is currently being renovated.
