If you're short on time in the area but want to check out some of the culture Fort Dauphine has to offer as well as the breathtaking surrounding scenery, this is may be the trip for you.
Day OneWe spend a day touring the town of Fort Dauphin which includes walking around the Tanamboa market, checking out the Anosy museum, visiting the local village of Amparihy and the fishing village of Ampotatse where you can see how the locals make their living. We finish up the day with an evening swim at Libanona beach where we listen to music provided by a local band and eat some delicious local food prepared by Claude. Accommodation is provided by a hotel in town who give discounted rates to Korobo Tours guests.
Day TwoIn the morning we get up early to take a short hike up the Saint Louis hills just outside town where we see the stunning sun rise over the Anosy Peninsula. In the afternoon we head towards the Faux Cap beach and you can sign up for surfing lessons! Both lunch and dinner are provided by the hotel recommended by Korobo Tours.
Day ThreeWe head 7 km outside of town and spend the day at the Nahampoana Reserve. Here you get to see some of Madagascar's most famous residents, the lemurs! Every lemur species native to the south of Madagascar lives in the park. During the early morning hours various groups of lemurs, such as Verreaux's Sifaka, Ring-tailed Lemur or Brown Lemur, usually play in the trees and on the ground near the old colonial house. Other animals in the park include chameleons, tortoises, crocodiles and a wide variety of birds. Oil Palm, Canela Cinnamon, Lemon Eucalyptus, young Baobab Trees and the conifer Arokaria are some of the trees you will see along the trails, as well as the Triangle Palm Tree which exists in Madagascar only around the area of Fort Dauphin. Lunch is provided by Korobo Tours.
