Madagascar is often referred to as the treasure trove of nature, and this explains it! On each of our journeys we experience new adventures and always reach new areas that are very suitable for a new tour. With the help of the best local guides and experts, we have called this unique journey into life. This photo expedition is devoted to the rarest lemurs on earth. This trip is something special, and perfect for the people that would like to witness “the extraordinary.”
From the capital, Antananarivo, we will drive into the clouded forests of Andasibe, which the largest of all lemurs – the Indri, calls home. In the early morning hours, its shrill volume can be heard up to our hotel. Even the rare diadem sifaka is found in these forests. After our stay in the mountain cloud forests, we go back to Antananarivo.
The next morning, at the break of dawn, we leave for the national park of Ankarafantsika. Here several lemurs can be found, like the golden mouse lemur and also the extremely rare mongoose lemur.
Ambilobe – Analamera
From the national nark Ankarafantsika we travel north. We will stay the night at Antsohihy. Our next destination is Ambilobe. We will stay here for about three nights and visit the Tsingys of Ankarana and the National Park of Analamera in order to find the black sifaka. This lemur is found only in isolated forest areas of Analamera and is considered extremely endangered.
We leave Ambilobe in the early morning for an exciting off-road tour to Vohemar. Our next destination is a relatively unknown and little-visited National Park where we hope to find the gold crown sifaka. Also on the program is a special trip to meet with the most scurrilous of lemurs, the aye-aye. This destination is one of the secrets on an expedition to find the rarest lemurs in the world.
Sambava – Marojejy
Our next destination is one of the most difficult to explore national parks in Madagascar, but the hardships are definately worth it! In the rainforests of Marojejy the silk sifaka can be found. It is one of the 25th rarest mammals in the world. There are three camping nights in order to get to meet the “angels of Marojejy”.
Sambava – Antananarivo
After spending three nights in Marojejy, the time has come to start our descent … The last time we descended from Marojejy we were welcomed in the village like Olympic athleets. Applause and cheers made us forget the hardships of the past few days. The time has come to enter our vehicles and drive back to Sambava too take a hot shower and have a delicious meal. The next morning we leave for the airport and board our plane to Antananarivo.
