Discover all of our attractions

In addition to the classic and customized tours we offer, we also offer you the possibility to discover all the facets of our beautiful island.

While most travelers never linger in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, Cannel’s Tour takes you behind the scenes of this busy and noisy city. With our partner Leha Tongotra, you will have the opportunity to visit new places to discover the history of the Merina kingdom to the rhythm of an ancestral music, the hira gasy !

Throughout your trip, you will be immersed in an extraordinary cultural adventure. Music, fashion, gastronomy and art will be on the program to dazzle you throughout your journey.

Also, you will have the chance to stay with friendly locals. They will be happy to share their daily life with you while teaching you basic tasks such as the preparation of food.


Leha Tongotra Trekking

What is it?

Leha Tongotra Trekking was born from a vision of Julot Lien Nirina, a graduate of the university ATM wanting to propose the development of the Merina lands often put aside by most of the Malagasy travel actors.

With Cannel’s Tour, each tour will start with a cultural walk with Leha Tongotra, a young and dynamic team of 8 experienced guides.

Focusing on the richness of the Merina culture as well as the beauty of the landscapes off the beaten track, Leha Tongotra Trekking offers you much more than a simple hike.

By starting your journey in Madagascar with this great experience, you will better understand the history of this country rich in customs and traditions. Everything has its meaning and you will have the opportunity to learn about it during this first day of trekking.

This first day will allow you to explore the typical Merina landscapes, to taste the famous “Hen’omby Ritra” an emblematic Malagasy dish and to listen to the sounds of the famous “Hira gasy”.


Cultural immersion

What is it?

Be sure to have an unforgettable experience with Cannel’s Tour where cultural immersion remains one of the main offerings.

We don’t just take you to the national parks or the most beautiful hotels. We offer you the opportunity to dive into the heart of our extraordinary culture.

As you walk through our local markets and talk to the merchants, you will quickly learn that bargaining is a true art. It is a fun way to interact with the vendors using humor as a weapon.

Welcome to the country where the people speak in song. From one city to another, from one region to another, you will feel the difference between the rhythms of the music. Our guides will not fail to tell you various anecdotes on the music of the country.


City exploration

What is it?

To discover all the facets of a country rich in history, culture and traditions, it is also interesting to explore its major cities.

Between the rhythm of Antananarivo, the calm of Antsirabe and the seaside atmosphere of Tulear, you will not have time to get bored.

Although most trips to Madagascar are based on classic routes such as the National 7, the experiences we offer will take you far beyond that.

The big cities, in spite of the sounds, have their charm. A form of harmonious melody that will certainly make you vibrate.

Each place has its own particularities, but Cannel’s Tour will select those that offer the best attractions.


Community discovering

What is it?

The population of Madagascar is mainly of Asian and African origin. It should be noted that this phenomenon of mixing is not isolated since these populations are also at the origin of the settlement of the surrounding islands such as the Comoros and Reunion.

Today, the Republic of Madagascar has 26 million inhabitants who are divided into 18 different ethnic communities plus some communities resulting from more recent immigration. The Malagasy community of Afro-Asian origin represents 98% of the population.

The two most important ethnic groups in number are the Merina (25%) and the Betsileo (12%). The origin of the 18 Malagasy ethnic groups is Austronesian. All studies confirm that the Malagasy people are of Austronesian origin and mainly from Insulinde.

From the genetic point of view, a common and unique DNA has been located within the different Malagasy ethnic groups, although they are geographically distant and endogamous. The Malagasy language is composed of 90% Austronesian vocabulary. Finally, the Malagasy present physical characteristics common to all the population of this sanctuary island.

Thus, during your trip with Cannel’s Tour, you will have the opportunity to learn a little more about these different communities as original as each other.


Wildlife adventure

What is it?

One of the wildest expeditions of the island remains the western part, a real exclusivity!

On the way, we will take the time to discover the Highlands and to make an incursion on the Indian Ocean by train…

From Tana, we leave the Highlands to join the Far-West by going down the Tsiribihina river in a dugout. Water birds observation, Bemaraha gorges, natural pools and meetings with the Malagasy people are on the program.

Then, by 4×4, we reach the baobab alley and the “Tsingys of Bemaraha”, with its limestone peaks sharpened by erosion. We now follow the west coast and its beaches, lagoons, turquoise waters and villages of Vezo fishermen. We then return inland and hike in the park to the ruiniform massif of Isalo and then in the granite foothills of Andringitra.

By the bush train we reach the East and penetrate a radically different tropical universe which leads us to the Indian Ocean and the famous Pangalanes canal, adjacent. Back to the plateaus by the Zafimaniry country during a hike between culture, handicrafts and villages classified as heritage of humanity before returning to Tana: a total adventure !


Homestay experience

What is it?

Have you ever stayed with a local when traveling to the other side of the world?

With Cannel’s Tour, you will have the opportunity to live this great experience. Several friendly Malagasy families will be happy to immerse you in their daily life by explaining their rhythm of life, but also by making you participate in the various tasks they usually accomplish.

Moreover, the Home Stay experience is also accompanied by the cooking session, a fun activity that consists in teaching you how to cook an emblematic Malagasy dish such as “Ravitoto sy henakisoa” or “Romazava”.
