Walk through the Tsingy for an up-close experience of this fragile ecosystem. Along the way, encounter lemurs (11 species among which white-footed sportive lemurs, red-fronted lemurs), a variety of birds (103 species, the most common to see being Coquerel's coua, crested coua, Madagascar Fish Eagle, Forest rock thrush) and chameleons, geckos, iguanas and snakes (all of them being non poisonous!).


This short 3-day trip can easily be made into a longer Madagascar trip incorporating different areas of this completely unique island. Talk to Lucie who has done this trip and she will advise what would complement it well.
