ZAFIMANIRY TREK

ZAFIMANIRY TREK

Your trip in Madagascar

The Zafimaniry country is an originality of the highlands.
Located at the limit of the fracture of the plateaus towards the east, it was a country of forests and sculptors, but massive deforestation and fire have razed the hills and emptied the forest potential which remains only by scraps scattered in the hollow of the valleys.
This testimony of destruction is terrible to see, but it testifies more than elsewhere to the demographic pressure and the weight of the traditions of culture on “tavy” fire which ravages the country. It is a very hilly area of ​​hills and the walk consists of going up and down to approach areas of cultures and superb villages with strange houses. Everything is sculpture in this country of wood tradition where the simple knife makes a rosette with the “raised hand”.
Our itinerary allows you to discover the best of landscapes, people and villages….
52 villages are spread over the area and the Zafimaniry population is estimated at 30,000.

Starting at 800 € /guest
