Must Do Adventure

  • Travelling composes wildlife culture as well as experiencing the epic landscapes, and if you are the backpacker for the latter one, Isalo National Park in the lhorombe region is probably the best option to consider in Madagascar Tour. The nature of the park seems like the American desert, but with the sweeping oasis, canyons and surrounding palm trees make the region wet and tropical periodically. Though people don’t consider the park as a large bucket for flora and fauna, the Grey-headed lovebirds and Ring-tailed lemurs are there to welcome you in the sun-soaked morning.

  • While the Ranomafana National Park stretches 415 KMs of multiple ridges and valleys, the altitude ranges up to 1200 meters. The most favorable time to visit the park is the dry season, i.e., December. The mesmerizing contrast in temperature and scenic beauty of the wet rainforests of Ranomafana is the best part of the park. Though at first take it seems to be a dry landscape, there is not a single day that doesn’t witness rain. Isalo might not offer thrills of spotting wildlife, but Ranomafana boasts a tremendous collection of lemurs and mongooses. While heights of the hills are the best place to taste the exclusive breath of beauty, missing the golden Lemurs can be a bitter disappointment in Madagascar, and this park is the place that can offer you all.

Make sure to book a whale-tour with delegates affiliated to Cétamada. Fun is going to get to its Climax when you visit the island of Ile Aux Nates.
