Day 1: Antananarivo
Meeting at Ivato international airport and transfer to the hotel. Overnight at the hotel.
Day 2: Antananarivo – Diego Suarez – Amber mountain (25 km about 1 hour)
Transfer to the airport and flight to Diego Suarez, a cosmopolitan, lively city which is called Antsiranana in the local language, with the "sugar loaf" in the bay towards Ramena. The first European discoverers of this paradise spot on earth were the Portuguese sailors Diego Diaz and Fernando Suarez around 1500, after whom the city was then named by the French. Reception at the airport and drive to the small town of Joffreville southwest of Diego-Suarez, which was founded by the French Foreign Legion in 1950 and developed into a resort for exhausted Foreign Legionnaires in cool mountain air. Since the mid-1990s, the little town has been filled with life: It serves as a starting point for a visit to the 18,200 hectare Montagne d`Ambre National Park with seven species of lemurs, over 70 species of birds and 24 amphibians. The park also includes several waterfalls up to 80 metres high, several river courses and crater lakes. Picnic lunch. Overnight at the hotel in Joffreville.
Day 3: Amber Mountain - Ankarana (120 Km about 3 hour)
Departure after breakfast to Ankify, a small village on the beach, then transfer by boat to Nosy Be Island. On the way we pass the long pretty town of Ambilobe on the Mahavavy River. In the fields around the village a large part of the Malagasy sugar cane harvest is cultivated and processed in a nearby factory, some of it into rum. The cocoa and spice plantations in the area are also important employers. From Ankify the ferries leave for Nosy Be. Due to often high waves, however, they are no longer allowed to sail to the perfume island with its tropical picture book landscape in the afternoon. After arrival in Nosy Be transfer by car to the hotel. Overnight stay in Nosy Be.

Transfer to the airport and flight back to the capital city of the Big Island. Meeting at the airport and transfer to the city. Overnight at the hotel.
