Discover the land of the lemurs on this eight-day tour through the stunning natural landscapes of northern Madagascar. Spend time on the forested trails of Amber Mountains National Park before reaching the Ankarana Reserve where spectacular limestone "tsingy" rock formations, underground rivers, and sacred caves await. Afterwards, head off to the islands for well-deserved beach time on Nosy Be, then head under the water to explore waters teeming with marine life and shallow corals in Nosy Tanikely. And, of course, you'll visit the "lemur island" of Nosy Komba to spend time with the curious creatures this country is known for.
