Day 1: Antananarivo

After our arrival we will go on a 3 hour walk in the primary forest to see reptiles, birds, lemurs and orchids as well as rare and unique species such as the green lizard, the red owl, the tomato frog or the serpent eagle.

The Betsimisaraka tribe is Madagascar’s second largest ethnic group and inhabits most of the central and north-eastern coastal region. The name Betsimisaraka, which means “those who stand together”, refers to the time when the tribe’s confederation was forged from several smaller tribes in the early 18th century.
