This tour is suggested by Hery

In love with Madagascar, with the nature and hungry for all kinds of discoveries . I raise the nature, my second home, especially thanks to the warm courtesy of various ethnic groups of the island, but also thanks to the richness of terrestrial and marine fauna and flora that this country has to offer.
A travel to Madagascar offers more than an experience, it allows a turn back to the true meaning of life and also humbleness introspection .
