Hello,

I can recommand you many place but the most interresting is east coast , you start from TANA to Andasibe(Perinet) where you can find the biggest lemur( Indri Indri ) and tiniest lemur (Microcebus),Chameleon, insect, reptiles , .....after here you can drive to Manambato where you cacth the motor boat to accross on the Pangalane channel to reach Tamatave but first you can pass to Akan'ny Nofy (the park where you can find 08 species of lemur, insectes , reptiles...)and when you reach Tamatave you relax one days on the town and then you can extend your tour to Foulpointe or Mahambo but firstly you pass to Ivoloina park and Zoo ,there you 'll find 05 species of lemur above all Aye Aye (nocturnal lemur)after the visit there you relax on the Foulpointe beach or Mahambo beach and then you straight to northern to Soanierana Ivongo to cacth the boat to St Marie where the paradise island and you can take water activities there like diving ,snorkelling, surfing...and the most important you can observe the whales at this time because it's start May to Sept the season.

For the south west :

Tours: This tour focuses on very special areas of the highland and of the middle west of Madagascar. Flowing down stream of Tsiribihina River (140km) is both a recreational and discovery trip quietly in the middle of the mountains, the forests and through villages. Imagine yourself in the nature, camping on river sand and watching the sunset. The tour continues to Tsingy de Bemaraha, a world heritage and national park which is a unique geological formation. The baobab avenue by Morondava is also one of the highlight of our tour.

For the south:

Tours : Departure from Tana to « Malagasy Vichy »(Antsirabe)across the highland, then set off south to ambositra,the shopping capital of Madagascar continue to Fianaratsoa where we will take train descent to Manakara and then drive back by car to Ranomafana Park (hot water) which served a long time as thermal bath centre. Further on to Isalo Park with its sandstone massifs and endless plains passing Madagascar’s second largest city, then on to Ambalavao, and after some pretty hard travelling, you will be overdue for some relaxation on one of perfect beaches of Ifaty.

For the hotel that be better i recommand the guide who can organise your trip with nice hotel concerning with your budget this is his adress : besttreasurevisitmada@yahoo.fr or besttreasurevisitmada@gmail.com and you can ask him more information about this country he is professionnal and he has professionnal card from the Ministry.So i wish you have unforget travel with him , his name Aristide.

Good luck
