A succesful program for a group tour with guide Klaus Heimer and Le Voyageur in 2016. The tour leads first to the volcanic area around Ampefy and Analavory, then to the east of the country, along the Pangalanes canal, through Tamatave and Foulpointe to the beautiful island of Sainte Marie. Then flight to Tana and drive through the highlands to Fianarantsoa, and from there by train ride to Manakara at the southern east coast. As the last highlight, visit of the Ranomafana NP. It includes the visit of two Nationalparks and several small reserves. Meet the local population, enjoy the knowledge of your English and German speaking guide, and many opportunities to take great pictures. You’ll also experience some culinary highlights.
EAST, WEST AND SOUTH Welcome to the “laboratory of evolution” another name for the Island of Madagascar.This Island is home to 160 endemic mammals, including 99 lemur species. 110 endemic bird species, 260 endemic reptiles, 60 endemic snakes (thankfully none of which are venomous) and 290 endemic amphibians, not to mention countless endemic insects and plants, and more chameleons than anywhere else on earth! Truly stunning, amazingly diverse, and largely unspoiled. It’s also endlessly photogenic and a wonderful setting for a photography workshop.
