What we will do
  • We leave the Port of Diego Suarez and head for the wonderful Amber Mountain National Park, which boasts several interesting endemic species of fauna and flora. A natural oasis of wild beauty that is typical of the Madagascan landscape.
  • We reach Domaine de Fontenay, an old French colonial farmhouse surrounded by a huge lush park that is waiting to be explored. Amidst colourful orchids and scented medicinal plants we look for Galileo, the old tortoise that is over a century old and weighs 200 kg. After a pleasant walk, we are ready to relax and enjoy an alcoholic cocktail in the Domaine before returning to Diego Suarez and back to the ship.
