Leaving Morondava behind, you will be picked up again by four-wheel drive car and taken to Belo-sur-Tsiribihina to the ferry. There you will first dine at the restaurant called Mad Zebu.

Day 5: The little Tsingy and a ride on the Manombolo are coming up

Before heading to the big Tsingy of Bemaraha, you will have a short side trip to the small Tsingy. The March through the small, fascinating rock needles, which protrude from the ground everywhere, is reminiscent of a walk through a labyrinth and proves to be immensely fascinating. Between the needles you will discover rare pachypodia and various Euphorbia. Also various animals can be seen on this two to three hour tour gladly look.

The walk into the park then begins around six in the morning. Before that, you will be instructed in the correct use of the climbing harness. After a good hour of walking you will see why this climbing harness is so important on your excursion, because after the Passing several narrow caves and steep rock faces you come to a very well designed via ferrata, which leads with numerous stairs, suspension bridges, guide ropes and co. through the park hi to the most fascinating viewpoints.

Day 7: It goes back to Morondava

After the eventful days with the big and small Tsingy, the tour is coming to an end. Already early in the morning you will drive back south and continue after lunch in Belo-sur-Tsiribihina across the river. Afterwards, the journey continues by car, leaving behind the dry forest of the west coast. In time for sunset, you should normally reach the Baobab Avenue reach. There, the giant baobab trees cast fascinating shadows in the setting sun, completely immersed in a beautiful red light. After this spectacle we go on to Morondavawhere you will stay in an attractive bungalow complex by the sea.

Day 8: From Morondava to Belo sur Mer

After breakfast we leave Morondava in a southerly direction and drive on a sandy track through a landscape dominated by baobabs, dry forest and agricultural land. Here a four-wheel drive car is indispensable and provides the necessary comfort in all the difficulties of the track. Around noon we reach the wide lagoon of Belo-sur-Mer, where salt is traditionally extracted. On an elevated causeway we drive to the town of Belo, which leads an island existence in the middle of the wide lagoon and lies directly on the sea. Only accessible by car when the moon is in the right phase, Belo-sur-Mer is also a center of shipbuilding, with numerous shipyards building the famous coastal sailing boats called "Boutre".

Day 9: Belo sur Mer-Manja

In the morning we leave Belo-sur-Mer in southern direction. The landscape changes, it becomes drier and drier, the ground is stony and also the road can often only be driven at walking pace. You see perhaps most impressive <baobabs in all Madagascar. Finally we reach Manja, a town in the middle of nowhere, dominated by cattle farming and still very pristine. Still a bustling market town with its own charm.Accommodation at the simple "Kanto Hotel", the only accommodation in town.

Day 10 Manja to Morombe

On a strenuous, at first stony and then increasingly sandy road, we pass through a quiet, karstified hilly landscape. Then it becomes greener and more forested again, small villages line the road. We finally reach the wide riverbed of the Mangoky, where a quaint ferry takes us across the river. In the dry season a narrow river in the middle of a vast sandy plain, the Mangoky swells into a mighty stream in the rainy season. Then we reach Ambahikily, an important market town, which again indicates the proximity of civilization. From here, a fairly good road leads to Morombé, which we reach in the afternoon. Once an important seaside resort, Morombé now leads a tourist shadow existence, so the number of accommodations and restaurants is extremely limited. We will stay at the hotel "Chez Katia" directly on the beach.

Day 11 From Morombe to Salary

We leave Morombé in southern direction and drive on a track parallel to the coastline through a jungle-like dry forest. Andavadoaka, the insider tip for dropouts and paradise for divers is our next stop. Situated on a wide bay, the village with its nested houses seems remote and picturesque. After taking a breather in one of the restaurants on the shore, we continue south, always along the coast through a sublime dune landscape. Passing small villages of Vezo fishermen and driving slowly on the bumpy road, we finally arrive in the afternoon at the bay of Salary, another "insider tip" for Madagascar travelers. Huge sand dunes surround the blue shimmering bay, miles of sandy beaches offer "postcard motives" without equal. We are accommodated at "Salary Bay", who have built a bungalow complex directly on the dunes and are running a remarkable project in harmony with the Mikea people living here. This tribe is the smallest in Madagascar and has a very archaic culture based on fishing, trade in flamingo feathers and honey collection. Although the Mikea mostly seclude themselves and thus want to preserve their cultural characteristics, you will get an insight into the musical tradition of these people when Mme Claire has a typical Mikea band perform in the evening and end the evening with an incomparable performance of dance, song and music.

Day 12 Salary Bay

The place where the hotel is located is quite isolated, it is not on the route of the usual tourist routes. Salary Bay is a destination, not a passage. It is perfect for travelers who want to refuel in a beautiful place where time stands still, with a mile-long white sand beach and a turquoise blue lagoon on this southwest coast of the Big Island.

Day 13 - From Salary to Ifaty

After breakfast, we will continue south. Since the course of the tracks through the thorn forest changes after each rainy season, the route can either run directly along the sea or many kilometers inland. In Manombo we have a short rest and refresh ourselves with cool drinks in the only store of the remote village, before we continue southwards. In the late afternoon we finally reach Ifaty/Mangily, "the" beach paradise par excellence and move into the comfortable Hotel Belladonna directly at the sea. Here at the place water sports are capitalized and in the next two days you have sufficient

Days 14 and 15 - Ifaty

Also the cuisine here is of course "maritime", friends of fish - and seafood come here fully at your expense.

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.
