In Ambositra you will see how silk is produced and enjoy lunch with a local Malagasy family. Come face to face with lemurs and other wildlife in Ranomafana National Park, and witness the island's largest zebu market in Ambalavao (only Wed and Thu). Take a walking tour in the Anja Community Reserve before arriving into Isalo National Park.
