D1 : CANYON  DES MAKI AND CANYON DES RATS :  6 hours of walking

Transfer to the lower Ranohira.

We need to walk a little to reach the foot of this huge cliffs, where the remnants of an old forest have survived, hosting a couple families of Lemur Catta, recognizable at  their black and white tail, and the pure white Sifaka.

With luck, and silence, you might meet a couple of them after a bend of the track that runs between dry trees and rock. But the canyons eventually open their gates and reveals their treasures to the curious explorers who dare enter the narrow path. After the luch, we discover the CANYON DES RATS.

Diner and night at the camping site.

 

D2: CANYON  DES MAKI TO THE NATURAL POOL :  6 hours of walking and 500m of difference in height.

Breakfast early in the morning and up the crest of the cliff where you will admire a beautiful panorama of the North. Once inside these walls, the weird shapes’ll strike you, consequence of thousands of years of erosion. The colors, vegetation and profiles are exceptional and some see animals and patterns on the rock.

After 4 hours of walking in this mineral desert, under a hot sun, you’ll be rewarded with water. A small oasis lies in the middle of nowhere, for those who can find it. A good bath and the sunset will appease your day and conclude this first part of the visit.

Diner and night at the camping site.

D3: NATURAL POOL – NAMAZA- IFATY 4 hours of walking and 200 meters of difference in height

 

Today, it’s the Anamaza canyons that are heading for. It starts slowly, early in the morning to avoid the hottest time of the day, as we cross the same savanna-looking plateau and head down deep in a steep valley. The way down is well fitted out for the safety of less adventurous visitors. In the middle of the canyon runs the Namaza, a little stream protected by a comfortable forest that harbors a really laid back population of lemurs. There are not shy and we’ll see many of them while going up the water towards the beautiful waterfall of the Nymphs and its fresh waters. The difference of landscape and sensations between here and the plateau above is striking and really specific to this place.

Transfert to Ranohira or to our hotel.
