1. Re: advice on itinerary needed

It's a good itinerary overall but here are a few suggestions:

- in Nosy Be, on Day 5, maybe you should visit Nosy Tanikely marine reserve and enjoy the beach over there.

- Day 7 and Day 8 are a bit rushed. I would suggest you spend two nights in Ankarana or Montagne D'Ambre and visit the Tsingy Rouge ( you planned to do it on Day 11 ) on the way from Ankarana to Montagne d'Ambre. No need to budget a full day to see the Tsingy Rouges.

Hi there,

If I were you , fly to Diego Suarez first then visit the surronded before heading to Nosy Be for relaxing, I think it will be better for you to relax on the beach after your long trip.

I agree with #1I would like to suggest you to spend one night in Amber Mountain then next day visit the park and continue to Red Tsingy; for Ankarana reserve it will be better for 2 nights.

Hva nice trip!
