Hi all!

My girlfriend and I are travelling to Madagascar in July/August. We have 3 weeks and have a rough idea of where we would like to spend the first two. I'm hoping for a few other ideas for the last part. We're both 24, pretty fit and active and would like to try and blend the wildlife, watersports (surfing?),trekking with some sun!

So far our plan is:

Fly into Tana and leave ASAP to Andasibe National Park and stay at Vakona Lodge for a few nights.

Then travel north to Ille St Marie and 10 days or so exploring the island and Whale watching etc.

From there....we're pretty much open...we've looked into internal flights leaving Ille St Marie, but with little success.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks SO much,

Kind Regards,

Luke and Holly

if i were you i'd look into checking out Morondava! Mid West Madagascar, nice beaches/beach islands and home to the famous avenue de baobab! If you don't know of the baobab trees look them up on google!
If your spending some time in andasibe then you'll be amazed how opposite to that western madagascar is, its such a varied and diverse island!
enjoy your time there,
