THE LUXURIANT EAST COAST

The east coast is the most luxuriant of the whole regions of Madagascar. This is due to the high rainfall throughout the year. As a result, the eastern coast offers rich and extraordinary vegetation including the following: Ravinala Palms also known as the “Traveler’s tree”, coconut palms, beautiful flowers, perfumed essences and spices, ferns and all kinds of tropical plants. The itinerary goes from the capital to the coast of Toamasina, through the Pangalana channel. It provides a fascinating journey. On the way back to the capital, stop at Andasibe Reserve which is home to the largest lemur “Indri-indri”.
