About the trip

Enduro Sport Tour - The Wild South

12 days / 11 nights, including 10 days on the motorcycle

Destination: South of Madagascar

Total distance: 1,155 miles (1,860 km)


For drivers from Europe a hard test of patience, for motorcyclists a challenge: Madagascar's roads are mostly paths and tracks.

More than 90 % of the carriageways are not asphalted. Even the two-lane "Routes Nationales" between the larger cities only allow speeds of up to 80 km/h. Outside the built-up area, in Madagascar's beautiful nature, conditions change from dust-dry dirt roads and savannahs to mud and slush holes and smooth laterite tracks. Five thousand kilometers of coastline and seven peaks, each over 2,000 meters high, mountains and desert - Madagascar is a lot of fun for bikers!

Short tour description

A landscape with endless expanses between sky and sea, between bush and semi-desert - that is the south of Madagascar.

Enjoy a variety of fascinating landscapes as you slowly descend from the highlands to the east coast of the island and look forward to challenging rides through sand, dirt and mud.

Welcome to our tour to the deep south!

Day 5: Ranomafana - Manakara

Route length: 93 miles (150 km) on asphalt This unique national park, which was established only in 1991, covers more than 42,000 hectares. In this park, located at an altitude of about 1300 m, you can visit one of the last mountain cloud forests on earth. A truly unique biotope, one can see (with luck) 12 species of lemurs, over 100 species of birds, insects, frogs, reptiles, huge trees and ferns. Hikes depending on the desire of the participants. Early in the morning the drive goes up numerous serpentines to the park entrance: in the morning hours the numerous lemurs are most active and the The cloud forest then reveals all its magic. Depending on fitness and interest, different circuits can be undertaken, the whole morning is at your disposal. Now we continue through the peculiar hilly landscape near Irondro until we can sniff sea air in the afternoon: Palm trees and the typical houses on stilts indicate the proximity of the rainy east coast, then in Manakara we see for the first time the Indian Ocean rolling onto the wide beaches of the city. After barely three hours we catch sight of palm trees and the blue, endless expanse of the Indian Ocean. In the coastal town of Manakara we visit the very busy market for the first time, here the famous pepper from Madagascar and also other spices produced there such as cinnamon, cloves, turmeric and of course first class vanilla can be bought cheaply. Overnight stay in the hotel "La Vanille

Dinner and overnight at the hotel.  

Day 9: Lavanono - Itampolo

Course length: 43 miles (70 km) on sand This is the shortest daily stage on one of the most difficult routes in Madagascar.

Appeal for donations



After 10 months of total inactivity, self-employed people in the tourism industry in Madagascar are completely without income. There is no opening of the borders in sight in Madagascar and we are at the beginning of the rainy season, which is the low season, even in normal times. I have started a fundraiser for the guides and drivers I know well. From this money we will buy rice and other essentials and distribute them regularly, if possible, until the resumption of travel activities in April 2021 at the earliest. My special thanks to those who have already donated. I will start buying rice tomorrow and will begin distributing it this week.
