Experiencing Malagasy nature, history and culture

Lately we have travelled a bit to explore more of Madagascar. The island is the fourth largest in the world which means that the nine months we will stay in Madagascar will not be sufficient to discover the entire country. Nevertheless, we feel privileged to have the opportunity to see and experience some of the places which makes Madagascar a dream destination for outdoor lovers. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words so we have made some collages we want to share with you - enjoy!

On the way from Tsiroanomandidy to Antananarivo we visited a ranch.

For many people in Madagascar, Sundays are spent together with family and we were lucky to be invited to a friend’s family lunch where we were welcomed with a lovely Malagasy song.

About 21 kilometers north of the capital Antananarivo you can find the Royal Hill of Ambohimanga. This spiritual and historical site is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. We spent one afternoon hiking in the area and learned more about Malagasy royal history and culture.

Madagascar is known to be the home to some of the world’s most interesting animals. We went to a wildlife park to get a closer look at some of them and get a feel of the unique and diverse nature that the island offers.
