Summary

The PLAISIR trek is a three-day hike that is also suitable for inexperienced walkers. An extra day can be added. The tour will lead you through several villages where you will get acquainted with the Malagasy culture and where you will experience the hospitality of the villagers. During the walks and the boat trips you will have plenty of time to admire the Malagasy flora and there is a reasonable chance of spotting lemurs, chameleons and other animals. You will also see an abandoned graphite mine and you can take a swim in a lake near a waterfall. If you opt for the four-day trek you will venture even further into the forest and of course the possibility of spotting animals will increase. The trek will be accompanied by an English or French-speaking guide.
