    Almost everything! The hotels chosen by *** (the local tour agency we went with, through Evaneos) were for the most part brilliant (most of them had great food, amazing views and lovely rooms), our guide Rynah was fantastic and shared plenty of stories of Madagascar with us, including a lot about the traditions of the tribes in each part of the country we visited, and about the wildlife and landscapes and people. Everything on our trip went smoothly, and it was great to plan an itinerary with Lea, who added some trips we had in mind that aren't typically part of the standard itineraries, and modified the hotels to include some one or two we specifically wanted to stay at. We had some fantastic guides in the national parks, too - particularly in Andasibe and Isalo.
    Worst parts:
    While this isn't really any fault of Evaneos' or ***, a couple of the local guides in specific reserves were a little less respectful of the wildlife than we would have liked, bringing animals out of hibernation or bothering them to bring them close to us - some tourists may enjoy this, but we believe this shouldn't be encouraged.
    Summary:
    We mostly took the RN7 route through Madagascar from east to west, heading from Andasibe through the highlands to Ranomafana, then through the Savannah and Isalo national park to Ifaty and Tulear, and...We mostly took the RN7 route through Madagascar from east to west, heading from Andasibe through the highlands to Ranomafana, then through the Savannah and Isalo national park to Ifaty and Tulear, and ending our trip in Anakao on the west coast. On our second day, we hiked in Andasibe-Mantadia national park, and a highlight of the entire trip was watching the incredible Indri lemurs and hearing their famous call from right above us in the tree canopy. Hiking in the rainforest was fantastic, and our guide in Andasibe was really enthusiastic - we saw so much wildlife! Throughout our trip we saw about 13 species of lemur, lots of chameleons, gheckos, frogs, orchids, incredible plants etc. The highlands were beautiful and we met so many wonderful people on our trip, and we would've loved to stay and hike in Isalo national park for much longer than 1 day! It was also great to end our trip with a relaxing couple of days on the white sand beaches of Anakao, and the *** (spiny forest) near Ifaty was great to see lots of baobab trees. Take a minute to look up too - nowhere else in the world have I seen a night sky like we saw in Madagascar, with the Milky Way clearly visible. The landscapes, unique wildlife and wonderful people of Madagascar all meant we had a fantastic trip - even if it was tough at times to pass through some very poor parts of Madagascar - we wished we could help every kid we met in some way. We can't wait to come back!See more

    Best parts:
    We did the Extraordinary South Tour (with some personal customization) and everything was pretty close to flawless- from the communication with our local guide Eric, to airport pick up, transition between hotels and hikes in the parks. Our driver Oni was exceptional. He was aware how much my boyfriend and I were excited to see wildlife and made a point to pull over whenever he saw any birds, or beautiful landscapes. He made special suggestions to our park guides so that we saw the most on our hikes and even suggested some additional activities not booked in our package that we very much enjoyed (night hike in Ranamofana to see the mouse lemurs and Spiny Forest in Ifaty). Despite the long drives between locations (sometimes 4+ hours), Oni kept us entertained with facts about the county, history or friendly conversation. Breaks were pre-planned in areas of interest (lookouts, handicrafts, lunch) so we never felt we were sitting too long. The hotel staff and park guides were all friendly, handicraft demonstrations were interesting and the wildlife/landscapes were incredible. We had a blast in every national park and we saw much more than we anticipated. My boyfriend and I are avid hikers and we were more than happy to hike for an entire day (9am-4 or 5 pm) walking, and we were well prepared with water, hats and sunscreen. If you're a big hiker this trip is definitely for you! We saw everything from dense rainforest, sub-desert, canyons and hidden oases. We were up close to many endemic species of lemurs and birds. I highly recommend this trip anyone who is fond of nature, hikes and ready to get our of your comfort zone. Brush up on your French before you leave, some of the hotel staff's English is limited.
    Worst parts:
    Our hotel in Ranamofana (Chez Gaspard) was unaware that our breakfast was included and we were charged, we had to remind them the second day. The hotel in Ifaty (Le Paradisier) had may mosquitoes, some getting in the room because the bungalow roof did not meet the walls in order to have low-energy temp control. The bug net worked just fine to keep bugs out, but relaxing elsewhere in the bungalow was a bit buggy. Our hotel in Ansirabe (Flower Palace) was right in the city centre and very loud due to a political concert/gathering that went late into the night. We had ear plugs so slept well, but others complained of the noise.
    Summary:
    Started in Anatanarivo and spent a night before driving to Ansirabe where we spent two nights visiting the city, hiking the highlands and seeing handicrafts.

Drove to Ranamofana and spent two nights and hiked the rainforest seeing the lemurs- which was was personal favourite part of the trip. We added an additional night hike to see the mouse lemurs which I would recommend. Drove to Isalo stopping in Anja to see the ring-tailed lemurs. In Isalo we spet two nights and an entire day hiking the subdesert and seeing the oases- my boyfriend's personal favourite part of the trip. Drove to Ifaty where we spent 4 nights (our customization ) where we snorkeled and visited the spiny forest. This was a great way to unwind after many day of sweating and hiking. Flew back to Tana and toured the royal palace before spending a night then flying home.See more
