amazing and packed tour with Johanna Emadisson
Save

We just came back from our trip to Madagascar (Ranomafana and Andringitra), and we had an amazing time with Johanna (lovasson@yahoo.fr).

One thing amazing about her is that, we want to hike a long tail in Andringitra and camp up there. While other tour guides try to talk us into doing easier trail and stay in a casa hotel, Johanna understand that we want something wilder, she let us know what's posible for our schedule and advise us what is best to do. She prepared foods and camping gears for us. And arranged the car to pick us up deep in a village after the camping! Otherwise it would have been a very hot and long hike back out. We even picked up a few miserable tourists on our way out.

For the trip in Ranomafana she got the best wildlife guide Emile to take us to see birds and Lemurs! He has some secret spots he know where the lemurs come very close to you!

We were amazed how Johanna can put together something within just four days (we are last minute planner!)! And on top of that, she charges very reasonably, I don't even need to bargain at all.

I recommend Johanna wholeheartedly if you are looking for a stressless tour where all detail are taken care of.

Her contact : Johanna (lovasson@yahoo.fr). Say hi to Johanna for us Ken and Ashley if anyone of you with her!

We found this guide from other people reviews in this forum. We had a good experience, and we would like to recommend. Isn't it part of what this forum is for?

I gave some specifics of our trips, what more you want to know?

Understood.

For our trip, we got a 4x4 car with driver for 10 days for 50 Euro per day (from the airport, end at the airport), and we paid another 170 euros for gas on the road.

The arrangement for 3 days camping Andringitra adds another 180 Euros including everything from tents, food, guide, porters / cook. Food are amazingly good and well presented, even we are in the middle of nowhere.

However, you would be able to save quite substantially if you arrange your own tent, and food. Guide and porters can be hired at the visitor center when you pay the entry fee. Guide is mandatory for foreigners for safety reason. Rate for both guide and porters are very cheaper. Don't remember exactly, it was like less than 10 euros per day. I would strongly suggest people to hire more porters, and tip generously, hiking up there for multiple days and carrying the supply are really really hard work.
