Love the gorgeous landscapes, unusual creatures, and exploring the outdoors? Then why havent you been to Madagascar yet? This eight-day adventure introduces you to Africas remote island paradise by way of Bekopakas famed Baobab Alley, the stunning weathered rock formations of the Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve, a canoe ride to caves along the Manambolo River, and maybe even encounters with the odd lemur. Madagascar is one of the most otherworldly places on Earth, and you may not even believe it when you see it.
There are no planned activities until an evening welcome meeting.

Canoe the Manambola River
Little Tsingy Visit
Enjoy a full day exploring the peculiar rock formations of the 'Great Tsingy'.
Hiking the Great Tsingy is more adventurous than the Little Tsingy and involves sections of scrambling on exposed rocks, crossing hanging bridges and large vertical drops. It is not technically difficult, but should not be attempted by the faint hearted or those suffering from vertigo. (The panoramic views are worth the effort though.) If you do not want to visit Great Tsingy on this day, there are alternatives to spend an additional day in Little Tsingy.
Great Tsingy Visit
The sandy track leads back to Morondava passing through Baobab Alley in time for sunset. Opt for a group farewell dinner as the trip draws to an end.
