Points of this tour

1Let’s go see the animals unique to Madagascar

There are encounters with the largest lemur ‘Indri’, the lemur such as ‘Sifaka’ who has a cute jumping leg while standing upright, and reptiles such as person chameleon and precious animals that can only be seen in Madagascar. Look for nocturnal lemurs on a night walk or watch animals up close at Chameleon Park.


2Baobab tree-lined path

‘Baobab’ is a strange tree that appears in the Little Prince. There are seven types of baobabs in Madagascar. Visit Madagascar’s popular tourist destination ‘Baobab Tree-lined Road’ twice, where the baobabs are lined up in a straight line, and enjoy taking pictures with the blue sky and sunset in your bag. You will also see a tree called ‘Love each other Baobaw’ where two trunks are intertwined.

From the capital Antananarivo to Morondava with the baobab tree-lined road, it takes more than 12 hours one way by road. We will travel on round-trip domestic flights so that you can enjoy your trip comfortably without wasting time and energy. It operates several times a week, so we will organize the itinerary according to the flight schedule.
