Nature Lodge is secluded and rustic, situated just north of Madagascar's Montagne d'Ambre National Park. With only 12 wooden bungalows, this really is an escape away from civilisation; expect local food, spectacular scenery and wildlife encounters. 

Day 3
The Montagne d'Ambre National Park

The Montagne d'Ambre National Park is a must-see on a tour of northern Madagascar, famed for its endemic species, Edenic waterfalls and crater lakes. 

After being met by your English-speaking guide, you'll drive to this national park for a full days visit; get ready for the trek of a lifetime. As you explore the vast mountain rainforest wilderness with your guide, you'll have the opportunity to spot indigenous species of lemur such as the Sanford’s lemur and the crowned lemur, as well as ring-tailed mongooses, fossas, paradise flycatcher's, plus many more! We particularly recommend that you make a trip to one of the waterfalls in the national park, as they are truly breathtaking.

Today, you'll set off to Iharana Bush Camp, a secluded lodge that is ideally located for exploring the Ankarana Special Reserve. A 4 hour drive, the lush, volcanic scenery will be simply sublime as you travel across the ever-changing landscapes. As you approach Ankarana, you'll be greeted with a spectacular, awe-inspiring view of the Tsingy. Soon after, you'll be arriving at the lodge, just in time for lunch!

Day 5
The Grand Tsingy at Ankarana

Welcome to one of Madagascar's most surreal landscapes! After setting out in the morning with your English-speaking guide, you'll spend a whole day exploring the Ankarana Special Reserve, travelling through varied terrains of Tsingy and forest.

With indigenous flora and fauna, the region is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts; you'll be likely to spot crowned and Sanford's brown lemurs, as well as many of the nearly 100 bird species present. Each trek is tailored to your individual fitness level, meaning you'll enjoy your day comfortably. We particularly recommend making time to see Lac Vert, the Baobab forest and Les tourelles des Tsingy.

Day 7-8
Tsarabanjina Island

After an action-packed itinerary, this is your time to slow the pace and unwind; though there is still plenty to see and do on the island. You can choose to spend your days snorkelling, sailing and taking guided walks around the island, really immersing yourself in the natural environment. For those passionate about marine life, at an additional cost you can go scuba diving, spotting sea turtles, manta rays, and even whale sharks at the right time of year. 

Day 9-10
Fly from Tsarabanjina Island to UK

Your tour of Madagascar has sadly come to an end! After taking a 90 minute speedboat ride to Nosy Be, you'll board a domestic flight to Antananarivo where you'll spend a final night back at Relais Des Plateaux Hotel and Spa.

You'll have certainly made some unforgettable memories on this trip; and whether you're looking to explore more of Madagascar or somewhere new, your Luxury Travel Specialist will be ready to start planning your next adventure.
