Madagascar's northern contrasts

Evolution has occurred more or less in isolation on this remote island, with the result that much of its wildlife is found nowhere else on earth. Madagascar's menagerie of weird and wonderful creatures includes over 70 species of lemur, the world's largest and smallest chameleons and the almost extinct elephant bird. The island's landscape is no less fascinating, ranging from lush jungles and palm-fringed beaches to the razor-sharp stone forests of Bemaraha National Park. On this journey through the north of Madagascar, you will get a first impression of the incredible diversity of the country

Welcome to Madagascar

After your arrival in Madagascar, you will be taken to your hotel and have time to settle in. The capital of Madagascar, Antananarivo, is affectionately known as Tana and is perched on a majestic mountain range at an altitude of around 1400 meters above sea level. The city has a rich historical heritage, which is complemented by picturesque landscapes and a large network of wonderful hiking trails.

In the morning you fly to the north of the island to Antsiranana - formerly known as Diego Suarez. From here you have access to the famous Amber Mountain National Park. This park, founded in 1958 and rightly described as a "biological treasure", aims to preserve the unique flora and fauna of the Diego Suarez region. It is home to a magnificent rainforest that is protected from any human influence and is home to a rich and flourishing complex nature. During this visit you can admire different forms of vegetation. The park is home to several species of lemurs such as the crowned lemur, the lemur fulvus, several species of birds and chameleons. These include the Brookesia - the smallest chameleon in the world.

Ankarana Reserve

The Ankarana Reserve, about 100k from Joffreville, is another fascinating nature reserve known for its extraordinary karst landscapes and diverse wildlife. It is home to numerous caves, underground rivers and impressive limestone formations, the so-called "Tsingy". Particularly impressive are the Tsingy Rouge, a unique red rock formation created by erosion. These striking, pointed rocks offer a spectacular natural spectacle and are a popular destination for adventure and nature travelers. The Ankarana Reserve also provides habitat for numerous endemic species, including lemurs, reptiles and rare birds, and is a paradise for naturalists and photographers
