Climbing


  • Andringitra National Park

The Tsaranoro massif has turned in a few years in one of the best rock climbing areas of the southern hemisphere. Its highest point reaches 800m high. The rock is virtually crack free and all routes are mostly bolted face climbs. The spot has every condition to end up as a climber's hang out with a very international crowd.

  •  Andantsara island

Andantsara is a legendary tiny island with only a few square kilometres area settled in North Madagascar. It is one of the smallest islands of the Hara archipelago with a metamorphic rock on either end connected by an isthmus of white sand dunes. Great limestone tsingy, a fantastic reed and beautiful sand beaches and a small hut bar nesting under the shadows of the rocks make it a popular place for advanced rock climbers, though despite its difficult access and some difficulties with the local population there are by far not that many visitors as you might expect considering the unique wilderness of this destination.
