Tour overview

This all-inclusive Madagascar South RN7 Tour will lead you from Antananarivo to Toliary city, along the south on  RN 7; a several-day driving tour which brings you through various different regions, admiring unique natural beauties and variety of landscape.

The tour starts from the Highlands and crosses regions peopled by ethnic groups as the Merina and Betsileo which cultivate fields and rice fields on the valley or carved in terraces on the mountain-sides. You will go to interesting small towns, such as Ambatolampy, a big farmer village, known for the handicraft manufacturing of aluminum articles; Antsirabe town, with its large and tree-lined boulevards, crossed by the “Posy Poss” (rickshaws); Ambositra, the “capital” of the precious woodcraft which you will admire in several shops; and Fianarantsoa, the best starting point for tours to Ranomafana National Park; Ambalavao village, a big gathering center for herds of zebu coming from the countryside.

This south RN7 tour also will give you an opportunity to get close to the local Malagasy people and learn their culture. With the National Parks listed on this tour, you will be able to see the high light of Madagascar, the wildlife in their natural habitat. Ranomafana National Park is best for its different Lemurs and birds species, home to eight lemur species. Many of them are easy to spot, including the Golden bamboo, eastern grey bamboo. Other insects include the Giraffe weevil and others. Many species of chameleons are often seen, as well as diverse birdlife like brown Mesite, Madagascar wood rail, couas (an endemic Madagascar cuckoo), and ground-rollers, a family unique to the island.
After Ranomafana; we will come to the vast Horombe savannah interrupted only by the calcareous massif of the Isalo National Park with beautiful landscapes; canyons, gorges, natural pools. Spot the sunset at Isalo Windows, Isalo Queens. On the way, we have a short visit to Zombitse Park to discover another species of Lemur and view some nice Baobabs trees as well. The semi-desert bush characterized by wild and beautiful vegetation, of great naturalist interest, typical of the Malagasy south.

We finish the RN7 in Toliara, passing by Antsokay arboretum and time for a city tour of Toliara, the capital of the south-west, before ending in the seaside resort of Ifaty/Mangily or at Anakao for a private beach.
