Ankarana National Park

The massif of Ankarana is dominated by attractive limestone karst formations called locally “Tsingy”, it extends on a little over 20km on the west coast. We count an underground complex network, extending over nearly 120km.
Ankarana is home of 13 species of bats, 10 species of Lemurs (Crowned Lemur and Brown Lemur), and 92 species of birds. The specific fauna, adapted to the life caves, gives to Ankarana its particular character. Ankarana preserves a dense, tropical deciduous forest with spiny forests, baobabs, tall trees.
Rare and endemic birds and many species found their holiday cottage in the reserve, as the fosa, the unique predator of the species of the family of Felidae in Madagascar.

3 bays and Ramena beach

Departing from Diego towards Ramena, after a few kilometres on bad roads, we will take a sandy track up to the Bay of Sakalava. An imposing a 300 years old Baobab tree is soaring above the road before we reach a very beautifully white sandy beach where, with a bit of luck we will able to encounter some lemurs.
Then we leave for the Bay of the Pigeons and after crossing some dunes, we will arrive at bay named the dunes (Bay of the Dunes). A deserted beach will welcome you with an invitation to bathe.
Depending on the seasons, you may get a chance to watch a ballet of tortoises.
We will continue through Cap Miné where the vestiges of war guns and fortifications attest historic presence of the French Army and its former role as guardian of the pass (or the main gateway to Diego Bay), and the lighthouse which is still in good repairs.

Mer d’Emeraude

We take a sailing boat past by Ramena beach to the Emerald sea.
Emerald sea is located in the North of the false pass. It is an immense emerald coloured lagoon. It is shallow enough to allow divers to swim
in a natural dreamlike aquarium in the company of fish of all shapes and sizes, with different colours coming to meet the visitor.
Other small Virgin Islands (Diego Island, Suarez Island) with white sandy beach, completely deserted allow you to join pleasure with usefulness
in a unique site of the region.
Completely unspoilt, this intense and magical place will leave you with marvellous memories.

Cap diego and his baobabs

Departure by boat from the port Diego to Cape Jasmine Diego (Panoramic view of both the harbor and the tip of the cap). We follow the coast where you can enjoy to watch an interesting combination of Baobabs.
We visit the old military town and its remarkable natural cave.
We will go to a desert beach where the boat awaits us. We will discover another secluded beach where crystal clear water will push you to enjoy scuba diving.
Picnic and bathing therein.

Tsingy rouge

Through mountains, in the South East of Diego-Suarez, the Red Tsingy, result of the erosion by the rainwater of a thick coat of laterite, reserves you the other secrets of the nature.
Leaving Diego towards the South, we will take the RN6 ( National Road 6 ) along 45kms of winding road through rice plantations and farming fields to the village of Sahafary, then into a side road bordered with Eucalyptus trees (a reforestation project) up to a viewpoint dominating the Indian Ocean, the plain of Irodo, the reserve of Analamera and Lavakas.
The visit continues through an overhanging plateau of mountain track bordered with palm trees, reaching a peak landscape, a typical structure formed with the combination of bush fires, erosion and water infiltration.
The Red Tsingy, composed of sandstone, lime and marl, offer their beautiful ephemeral draperies inside the only sedimentary basin of Madagascar.
