Indri & Golden Bamboo Lemurs
From the capital, Antananarivo (known as 'Tana' for short), we drive east to Andasibe and spend three nights at the habitat of the Indri - largest of the surviving lemurs - as well as brightly coloured chameleons and many bird species. Next, it's due south, driving through sparkling green highlands and typical villages to Antsirabe where we visit Lake Tritriva, dramatically trapped inside a perfect volcanic cone. Continuing to Ranomafana we spend more time searching the rainforest for lemurs, particularly the Golden Bamboo lemurs, only discovered in 1987.


Botanist's Paradise
Descending from the high plateau to Ranohira, we walk deep into Isalo National Park - Madagascar's 'Grand Canyon' - to explore the sandstone massif and weirdly eroded rocks. Botanists will delight in the host of rare endemic plants found here. Dark-skinned tribes live around Toliara on the southwest coast and we'll see their carved and painted tombs, many with aloalo scenes from the life of the deceased. From Toliara we take a boat to the beach at Anakao. We end our tour here at the fishing village with its hundreds of outrigger canoes looking out onto some of the finest snorkelling and diving spots in Madagascar.
