14 Days Madagascar Adventure Tour – Confidence Africa Tours
Our 14 Days Madagascar Adventure Tour reveals an island of gold-sand beaches lined with swaying palm trees, diverse topographical wonders that combine to house incredible arrays of endemic flora and fauna and friendly, traditional peoples with tribal cultures. Madagascar has all the right ingredients for an unforgettable Africa tour destination; and this small piece of paradise does not fail to live up to its potential.
As we travel through scenery of mist-enshrouded virgin rainforest, rice paddies fringing low hills, deep canyons carved into peculiar shapes by erosion and Eden-like waterfall oases, we see Mother Nature at her best and come to appreciate the uniqueness of this special place. We see ruined palaces, brightly coloured houses stacked on hillsides, bustling markets and innumerable intriguing sites that detail the area’s pre- and post-colonial history – and of course, we’ll be sure to see plenty of lemurs, which can be found naturally only in Madagascar and on one or two surrounding islands.

Ilakaka used to be an anonymous village, without any history. But since 1998, when one of the largest sapphire deposits in the world was discovered here, the houses have been springing up like mushrooms. The “blue fever” has broken out. After the sapphire deposits were discovered, 20,000 to 50,000 people came here and stayed. This mining jungle deserves special attention because it represents the other side of Madagascar.
This is a rare opportunity to get to the bottom of the mysteries and enigmas of the bluestone, the consequences of which are often terrible.

The floristic zonation is visible despite mangrove samples: Sonneratia alba at the level of the lower Lake; then Rhizophora mucronata and Bruguiera Gymnorhiza; Ceriops Tagal; finally, Avicennia marina at the level of the rocky masses located at the base of the cliff.
Sarodrano hinges at the dead cliff that forms the lower part of the great escarpment that limits the Causse de Belamotra. It is surmounted by dunes with little vegetation. It is thought to have been established late 2,000 years ago B.P. (Battistini, 1995).
On the cliffside, freshwater resurgence can be observed. The mangrove develops there over a width of 150 meters between the Bina cave and the Grande Source.
At the edge of the sandy spit, one can see the remarkable homogeneity of the mangrove: Avicennia predominates but leaves the place to Ceriops in the undergrowth.
