A professional guide leads you through the park all morning.

At the other side of the estate there’s a former crocodile farm. In the lake there are still dozens of these prehistoric monsters to be seen.

 

DAY 4             to Antsirabe (South)

A six-hour drive (with stops of course) along the Route National 7 will take us to Antsirabe. It is the capital of the pousse pousse, a type of rickshaw, brightly coloured and operating solely on manpower. This charming town has some beautiful historical colonial buildings, which make it the perfect place for a stop over on our way to the south. You’ll stay two nights at the beautifully located Résidence Madalief, a very comfortable guesthouse that is part of a Dutch NGO that helps orphans in Madagascar.

DAY 7             to Andringitra

Madagascar is divided in two parts by a high mountain ridge in the middle of which the Andringitra Mountains are situated.
