After breakfast you will visit the Royal Place Rova and then continue to Ampefy to visit the region and the waterfalls of the Lily river. You will also visit the Geysire of Analavory. This is in a beautiful volcanic environment in Ampefy. On the way you will observe the cultural life of Antananarivo inhabitants. They live most of the time on the street as well as selling something. The duration of all the excursion will be approx. 5 hours. Then you will return to the Hôtel Restaurant La Ribaudière Antananarivo, a 4 star Hotel.
You will visit the former Royal Palace Rova of Madagascar. This is one of the famous historical cultures of Madagascar during the colonial period, executed by the monarchs of the Kingdom of Imerina in the 17th and 18th years and the monarchs of the Kingdom of Madagascar in the 19th. It is located at an altitude of 1462 m on the highest elevation of the capital, the Analamanga, and is thus almost 200 m above the quarters of the lower city.
The town is located in the district of Soavinandriana in the Itasy region. Apart from a place completely isolated from the hustle and bustle of the big cities, the village of Ampefy offers you a unique and contrasting landscape. Located to the west of Antananarivo, the road to this region leads to the volcanic highlands, which are very present in the region. The region with its charming volcanic landscape looks similar to the landscape in the southeast of the island. During your visit, you will discover the life and culture of the day of the people. The Peasants who live from agriculture are very industrious. They have planted vegetables, corn and rice in this fruitful soil. Whatever Madagascar likes to eat in everyday life, grows here in this country.
One of the main attractions in the Ampefy region is a visit to the Lili waterfall. Located in Antafofo, you can already admire the beauty of the volcanic region along the road to these famous waterfalls.
After breakfast you will be accompanied to the airport. Today you will fly to Toliara. The flight will take about 2 hours. From there you will be picked up by our tour guides and after lunch in Toliara you will be transferred directly to Anakao. The trip from Toliara to Anakao by boat is a special and exciting voyage. The trip will take about 1:30h. You will stay at the Hotel Anakao Ocean Lodge, a 3 star Hotel.
The time has come for you to surf on the beach of Anakao, the peaceful one located directly on the ocean. You also have the possibility to discover the Vezo villages. The life of the people there is very different than in the capital of Madagascar. They have a very nice culture, and of course different architecture of houses. Overnight at Hotel Anakao Ocean Lodge, a 3 star Hotel.
Anakao, is the most famous spot of Madagascar. Located in the south west of the island, it is a mecca for surfing, internationally recognized. This does not mean that it is very frequent. It is also left, hollow and powerful, which rolls on a reef. It is rather advised to experienced surfers.
After breakfast, we leave for the surfing on the Waves of Jelly Baby which is right in front of the south point of Anakao, more accessible for the beginners as the experienced ones. Overnight at Hotel Anakao Ocean Lodge, a 3 star Hotel.
JELLY BABIES SURF TOUR
Probably one of the most user friendly waves in the world and suitable for surfers of all levels, Jelly Babies is without a doubt the most regularly surfed wave in the region.
Today will be an exciting day for you as you will have the opportunity to meet the real inhabitants of the sea. We will go by boat to surf and kite board on the Flameballs Waves, north of a beautiful little island called Nosy Ve. We find a world class left hander that rides fast and far. We have to avoid the low tide, because the coral is not far. The southwest trade winds that blow most afternoons are ideal for kite surfing in the lagoon and to the inner reef breaks or even to the outer reef breaks like Flameballs. Night at the Anakao ocean lodge, a 3 star hotel.
This place is really the dream of every Surfer and kiteboarder. Nosy Ve (also written Nossi-Vey or Nossy-Vey during the French colonial period) is a small, coral island three kilometers of Anakao in the extreme south-west of Madagascar with lonely white sandy beaches and low green with little shade. Local fady (taboos) have left Nosy Ve unspoiled and have provided a safe nesting place for many red-tailed tropical birds, allowing them to approach at close range
The adventure continued. After breakfast, we will visit an island named Sarodrano. There we will discover extraordinary views with yellow fine sand. We will also have a look at mangroves. Later in the afternoon we will return to the hotel. Overnight at Hotel Anakao ocean lodge, 3 star Hotel.
The floristic zonation is visible in spite of mangrove samples: Sonneratia alba at the level of the lower Lake; then Rhizophora mucronata and Bruguiera gymnorrhiza; Ceriops tagal; finally Avicennia marina at the level of the rocky masses located at the base of the cliff. Sarodrano hinges at the dead cliff that forms the lower part of the great escarpment that limits the Causse de Belamotra. It is surmounted by dunes with little vegetation. It is thought to have been established late 2,000 years ago B.P. (Battistini, 1995). On the cliff side, freshwater resurgence can be observed. The mangrove develops there over a width of 150 meters between the Bina cave and the Grande Source. At the edge of the sandy spit, one can see the remarkable homogeneity of the mangrove: Avicennia predominates but leaves the place to Ceriops in the undergrowth.
After breakfast we will drive to Tsimanampetsotsa National Park. This park offers diverse exotic views. There we will discover a salty lake with dry earth. The lemurs and other birds such as flamingos are looking forward to your visit. There we will have lunch and in the late afternoon we will return to the hotels. Overnight at the Hotel Anakao Ocean lodge. 3 star hotel.
Among the 39 species of reptiles, the ray turtles are among the most important in Tsimanampetsotsa National Park. They are endemic to this region and unfortunately extremely endangered and threatened with extinction. Due to the chemical composition of the salty lakes found there, no fish can actually survive in them. Apart from birds, there are 12 species of mammals, including the extremely rare and endemic local Grandidierii mongoose and four species of lemurs.
