About the trip

Baobab Tour for Enduro Riders

15 Days - (14 on the motorcycle) - 2760 km


This tour is also one of short version with Domestic flight bookable.


Madagascar's low road density has created an extraordinary network of dirt roads. Covering an area as large as France and Belgium combined, every town and village in Madagascar is connected to an extensive network several hundred kilometers long. Five thousand kilometers of coastline and seven peaks, each over 2,000 meters high, mountains and desert - Madagascar is a lot of fun!

Welcome to our complete Baobab Tour!


The travel days in detail

Day 1: Arrival in Antananarivo

Our team will greet you immediately upon arrival at Ivato International Airport and transfer you to your hotel. Villa Sibylle is a private guesthouse near the airport, surrounded by a tropical garden. Relax from the flight and enjoy your first dinner there in Madagascar with an overnight stay.

Day 2: From Antananarivo to Ampefy

Route length: 100 miles (160 km) on asphalt and dirt roads It's time to get to know your motorcycle and your guide. Look forward to your first ride: you will leave the busy and somewhat chaotic streets of Antananarivo and head west on a good road between majestic mountains and rice fields. On the way you can visit the fascinating lemur park. Around Ampefy there is the possibility to discover Lake Itasy, volcanoes, geysers and waterfalls. Dinner and overnight at Farihy Hotel.

Day 3: From Ampefy to Antsirabe

Route length: 93 miles (150 km) on asphalt and dirt road On the third day you will experience the unique thrill of the roads and slopes. You will cross beautiful landscapes with rice fields interspersed with a variety of villages with typical architecture. After this long journey, you will arrive in Antsirabe in the afternoon. Antsirabe is the highest town in the country at about 1600 meters above sea level. There are very beautiful lakes of volcanic origin there. Dinner and overnight at the hotel Chambres du Voyageur.

Day 4: From Antsirabe to Ambatofinandrahana

Route length: 100 miles (160 km) on asphalt and dirt roads After a restful sleep, you will leave Antsirabe at sunrise heading south. You will drive on the Route nationale 7 (RN7) until Ivato-Centre and then switch off the only connecting road to the dirt roads at the foot of Itremo Mountains. Now your adventure on the slopes in Madagascar begins! Dinner and overnight at the "Hotel du Marbre", the only hotel in Ambatofinandrahana.

Day 5: From Ambatofinandrahana to Morondava

Route length: 236 miles (380 km) on laterite, sand and asphalt Getting up early is soon rewarded by beautiful mountain trails. The gates of the great West open before you as you cross the mountains of Itremo and its highest pass at over 2000 meters. The descent to the west coast offers pilots spectacular landscapes off the beaten track. Dinner and overnight at the Hotel Kimony Lodge in Morondava.

Day 6: From Morondava to Kirindy

Course length: 51 km on sand The short but intense day's ride takes you through the sand of the famous Baobab Avenue, past majestic ancient baobab trees. You will then visit the Kirindy Reserve with a unique endemic ecosystem and resident fossas, a native predator species. Dinner and overnight at the Kirindy Resort Hotel.

Day 7: From Morondava to Manja

Course length: 68 miles (110 km) on sand In the morning one of the most intense stages of the tour starts in Morondava. The day begins with the impressive crossing of the Kabatomena River, which is over 50 meters wide. The route then continues through a bush landscape to the salt lake of Belo. At high tide, crossing the salt lake can be difficult or even impossible. Our way leads us even further through the wilderness to the stage destination in Manja. The only hotel in town does not have much to offer, but is very pleasant and relaxing after the rather difficult stage in the deep sand. Dinner and overnight at Hotel Kanto.

Day 8: From Manja to Andavadoaka

Route length: 136 miles (220 km) on laterite and sand We start in the morning for a hard day on the motorcycle. We can expect routes with different technical requirements: sometimes sandy, sometimes hard laterite with termite mounds and sometimes stony track. Look around and enjoy the savannah landscape with huge baobabs and euphorbias that extends to the banks of the Mangoky River. Cross the river on a ferry and continue to Andavadaoka. Dinner and overnight at Hotel Manga Lodge.

Day 9: From Andavadoaka to Salary

Course length: 43 miles (70 km) on sand This is the shortest daily stage on one of the most difficult routes in Madagascar. Along a beautiful coastline dotted with baobabs are the largest and most pristine sandy beaches imaginable. There is no way to stop along the way or you will be stuck in deep sand. Concentration and technique are required. Serenity you will enjoy in the evening. Dinner and overnight at the Salary Bay Hotel.

Day 10: From Salary to Ifaty

Route length: 42 miles (70 km) on sand and laterite The dirt road widens. We will encounter huge bush trucks carrying people, cotton and other goods on overflowing platforms. Today you will have to drive a bit more leisurely: It's market day in many of the villages we pass through. You will have to use the horn more often to get through. Large sand dunes announce our arrival at the coast. When you arrive at the fishing village of Ifaty, you can relax on the beach before reaching the Belladonna Hotel as your final destination. Dinner and overnight at Hotel Belladonna.

Day 11: From Ifaty to Ranohira

Route length: 149 miles (240 km) on asphalt You'll be back on the RN7, moving from the hills of the coastal bush to the inland mountains. Today is the day of discoveries: You will get to know the mineral landscape of Isalo and the Isalo massif with a unique flora and fauna. The continental sandstone from the Jurassic period forms impressive shapes, colors and natural sculptures in different areas of the park. Amidst the barren and mineral landscape there are magnificent natural pools and waterfalls surrounded by lush tropical nature. Overnight stay at the Hotel Isalo Rock Lodge.  

Day 12: From Ranohira to Farafangana

Route length: 230 miles (370 km) on sand One of the most beautiful tracks of the course awaits you. From Ranohira you will leave the landscape of the tree savannah and gradually enter the rainforests of the east coast. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

Day 13: From Farafangana to Ranomafana

Route length: 155 miles (250 km) on asphalt In the morning, leave Farafangana for a quick hop on a well paved road to Manakara. Before lunch in Manakara, visit a herbal plantation.

Day 14: From Ranamafana to Ambositra

Route length: 161 miles (260 km) on paved road On the way from Ambositra to Antananarivo you will drive in the middle of rice fields, surrounded by mountains.

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.
