THE MAKAY MASSIF

A special massif in Madagascar, which is still known to few people. During a hike through this area, you will walk through different ecosystems and end up in a fairytale landscape that you will not find anywhere else in the world. Uniqueness at its best!

THE MAKAY MOUNTAINS

On the west side in the central part of Madagascar lies the Makay Mountains, also called the ‘Lost World’. Through a centuries-long process of volcanism, wind, water, drought, or in other words: erosion, a bizarre natural phenomenon has been created. A fine piece of work by Mother Nature if you ask us! The Makay massif is rarely visited, is quite isolated and is therefore one of the most impressive pieces of unspoilt nature on earth.

A MAZE OF CANYONS

The Makay massif consists of majestic plateaus divided into deep canyons. The plateaus are covered with dry forests typical of the western side of Madagascar. Between the deep canyons, life has developed over hundreds of millions of years that is found nowhere else in the world. It is as if you open the wardrobe from the normal world to Narnia. Between the maze of canyons, you find humid vegetation that isolates itself and protects it from humans.

A MULTI-DAY TRIP

On a multi-day hike through the Makay area, you will hike through different ecosystems and camp in the middle of fairytale Narnia land. Accompanied by a guide, you will explore the unbeaten paths between the giant canyons, walk along waterfalls, through currents, take a dip in one of the natural swimming pools and pitch your tent on one of the white sand banks.

HLUHLUWE-IMFOLOZI

The rolling hills of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi in KwaZulu-Natal with lots of green are a paradise for the self-driver. Located in the heart of Zululand, this park was established in 1895, making it one of the oldest game reserves in Africa! It is home to Big 5, but you also have a chance of spotting cheetahs and Wild Dogs. Throughout the park you can find several hides, where you can watch the wild animals drinking and playing by the rivers.

ELEPHANT COAST

The bush to beach experience on the Elephant Coast is varied, unique and cultural in many ways. This area is located in the east of South Africa, in the Kwazulu-Natal province. Sodwana Bay is ideal for a dive into marine life, in St. Lucia you will find hundreds of hippos (sometimes even in the village itself) and in HluHluwe-iMfolozi you can spot the BIG 5.

Mto wa mbu

Mto Wa Mbu is letterlijk vertaald ‘River of Mosquitoes’, maar gelukkig zijn er niet zoveel muggen meer, en kun je nu genieten van safari’s. Vanuit de standaard jeep, maar op de mountain bike, tuktuk, of met een lokale kano.

LOCAL LIVING IN SODWANA BAY

Sodwana Bay is a bay in South Africa on the north coast of KwaZulu Natal, between St. Lucia and Lake Sibaya. It is a popular diving destination and lies in the middle of South Africa's oldest Maputaland Marine Protected Area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But apart from the wonderful beach vibes, this place is also known for its rich Zulu Culture which we would like to show you.
