The Madagascar Reef and Rainforests tour starts in Antsiranana (Diego Suarez) and ends in Nosy Be. The Madagascar Reef and Rainforests is a Wildlife Safaris And Game Drives tour that takes 8 days taking you from Antsiranana (Diego Suarez) to Nosy Be and through other destinations in Madagascar.

Wildlife and beach walks exploring the northern limits of Madagascar. The northern coast and islands of Madagascar evoke a classic tropical island paradise, with white coral beaches, clear blue waters and the scent of exotic spices on the breeze. The rainforests are teeming with endemic wildlife and the coral reefs offshore are equally full of life and colour. The north coast and islands of Madagascar are perfect for an active yet relaxing experience. With walks traversing the beaches, headlands and historic fortifications of the craggy coast plus lemurs, lakes and waterfalls of the forested hinterland to discover, the itinerary provides a comprehensive insight into this little-visited section of the island. A boat journey takes us to the 'scented island' of Nosy Be, where we enjoy a couple of nights at leisure. The fragrances of ylang ylang, frangipani, vanilla and cinnamon drift on the breeze as travellers can enjoy snorkelling, experience the vibrant island life or simply relax and leave the rest of the world behind.
On arrival in Diego Suarez on Day 1 you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. Please check at hotel reception for details of when to meet your driver guide if he/she does not do your arrival transfer. We will visit the city and surrounding area, including Ramena Nofy Beach. Return to the hotel later in the day/ evening. (Hotel Le Colbert or similar; 3 star upgrade at additional cost - Allamanda Hotel or similar). Please note that arrival transfer is not included if arriving prior to Day 1, unless requested in advance (additional cost applies).

At the end of the day, we will return to the hotel. (Hotel Le Colbert or similar; 3 star upgrade at additional cost - Allamanda Hotel or similar)

A soothing blend of frangipani, Ylang Ylang, vanilla and cinnamon scents are carried on the gentle breeze which brings a unique peace to the island. Being one of Madagascar's most popular destinations, Nosy Be offers visitors the chance to relax on the beautiful beaches, be adventurous and be blessed with some panoramic views from the peak of Mont Passot, experience the vibrant underwater world by snorkelling or scuba diving or just go with the flow of island life.

(Be sure to check your home country's quarantine laws if you intend to take any spices away with you.)
