How did you hear about "NDAO-i-Travel"?

Startling day-trip
“Cape Andavaka and Ankapaky Cave”

The company NDAO-i-Travel offers an adventure to the ends of the earth. We organize a day trip, with a guide, to discover the cave of Cap Andavaka (Tanjon 'Andavaka). You will be surprised to meet lemurs and other animals in this secret corner of Madagascar. The west coast of Fort Dauphin is good to the exploration of astonishing sandstone cliffs, as wild as the Isalo, where you can walk along in the foam of the rough sea.

The cave of Cape Andavaka is about fifty kilometers from Fort Dauphin, following the national road 13 to Ranopiso.

After 3 hours of drive, including 1 hour of track in the wild bush, we arrive at the Belay fishermen village. From here we start trekking to the beach to spot the amazing Ankapaky grotte, excavated in the cliff. To reach it we have to walk for an hour along the ocean on rocky plateaus at the sea level. The site is impressive: the roaring water rises in geysers from the crevices of the rock, the sea forms in places natural pools, the huge cavities that overlook the forest offers a view of the ocean with intense blue... A unique show like a little first morning of the world.

The eroded stone crumbles gradually, and huge blocks lie at the bottom of this vast open cave, from the top of which we see the trees growing along the steep walls with dangling roots, intertwined in original configurations. In this special microclimate it was possible to develop a rainforest vegetation with lianas and ferns, absolutely unusual in this arid area. In the pleasant coolness of the cave we continue among the rocks to the bottom, where some Ring-tailed lemurs live and from where, through an ocean door, we can go up to the cliff. By climbing the cliff, the hike ends in the vegetation adapted to the usual drought of southern Madagascar.

The scenery is guaranteed, you will enjoy visiting and a picnic and eat local seafood on the beach. The lobster of Fort Dauphin is very popular and recognized as one of the best in the world. They live in the rocks at a depth of between 0.5 and 6 meters. Also, crabs and oysters in the area are a real treat. The full tour lasts a day and requires to be organized in advance by a guide.

At your request, it is possible overnight a bivouac on the beach. We will camp at the end of the earth under a beautiful starry sky. If you prefer to have our fresh lobster, oysters, crabs, prawns or fish brought to us where we made our beach fire, we ask the local cook and we would get what us need.

Upon request, we will define a customized program with you.
