This is a unique expedition which explores a little visited region in the North East of Madagascar. It combines trekking & camping in forests and rice paddies before rafting down a remote river towards the coast. You can extend your trip by spending time enjoying the undiscovered Indian Ocean resort of Mahambo, where you can relax on the beautiful white sandy beaches or ride the waves at this remarkable surf spot.
We start our trek at the Perinet Nature Reserve and will trek approximately 50km through remote rainforest, camping overnight in clearings, before reaching the little rafted Sahatandra river where we spend the next few days riding the rapids. Each day on the trek and on the river, the scenery will be spectacular and present new wonders. We shall encounter truly fantastic landscapes, exotic flora and see some of the endemic wildlife including lemurs, reptiles and birds. At the end of the trip, there is an option for a beach extension at Mahambo, a small, little known coastal town where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful white sandy beaches.For the adventurous among us, we will be able to take advantage of the surf school here as this is a remarkable place to surf. This expedition is a great combination for the adventurous and the wildlife enthusiast.
As part of our commitment to responsible travel and in conjunction with Woodenstock.org we finance a tree nursery and orchard in Italavina – which is a long term reforestation project.
