SKIP THE ROAD
Northern Madagascar is blessed with natural wonderlands that beg exploration and are a sure way to make a traveller’s jaw hit the ground. Due to its isolation, Madagascar can boast a huge number of endemic species and some of the most curious natural areas are in the remote north. But reaching all these areas is quite a challenge by road. Fortunately, you can hop on a helicopter and enjoy a day excursion to another world!
BIODIVERSITY IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND
Marvellous Miavana, on the island of Nosy Ankao, is a short heli-ride away from some of northern Madagascar best national parks and reservations. Whether you wish to marvel at the Tsingy —Madagascar’s stone forests— or spot the Golden Crowned Sifakas, a magnificent species of lemur, you will have expert guides at your side to enhance the experience. Come night, you’ll conveniently be back in Paradise.
GATEWAY TO LOST WORLDS
Some of the parks you can visit by helicopter from Miavana include Amber Mountain National Park, which besides its gorgeous waterfalls and lakes, is also home to Brookesia, charming chameleons that also happen to be the smallest reptiles in the world. Ankarana is a wondrous adventure for those with a passion for geology and ecology. Finally, the Lavaka or Red Tsingy is also within reach.
