Often described as 'nature's sanctuary', more than 90% of Malagasy animal and plant species are endemic to Madagascar. This adventure takes you up to the remote Anjajavy peninsula, often described as a 'mini Madagascar' because so much of the island is captured in this one location. Continue to Andasibe-Mantadia National Park to spot a wide variety of lemur species, chameleons, insects and endemic rainforest birds.
