Private lodge tour package through Southern Madagascar, passing through Anakoa, Lake Tsimanampetsotsa and Nosy Ve, starting and ending in Tulear – 4 Days
Tsimanampetsotsa National Park – First protected in 1927 for its endemic flora and fauna, it was officially recognised as a national park in 1966. The park offers several walks of different durations. There are an estimated 88 species of birds of which 35 are endemic to Madagascar, as well as the 4 species of lemurs.
Anakao – A picturesque coastal fishing town on the south-west coast of Madagascar.
Nosy Ve – A flat uninhabited island located off the south-west coast of Madagascar. Several ancient tombs from French settlers can still be found here. It has also served as a hideout for pirates as well as a slave departure port.
Tulear – Apart from several interesting churches, most of Tulear’s remaining buildings are fairly nondescript, as is its setting against a backdrop of mangroves and mudflats. The surrounding Madagascar area, however, offers numerous attractions and Madagascar highlights including good beaches, diving and snorkelling, surfing, kite surfing and wild surfing at Ifaty to the north and Anakao to the south; intriguing topography; interesting flora and fauna; and remote villages.
* The Southern Flamingo Package is also available as a Superior package.
