This great tour to North-East coast combines adventures, 4x4, sea navigation and the encounters. For the most enthusiastic of big thrills, but surely not ideal for everyone. The usually 3-day car journey between Toamasina and Maroantsetra can easily change into a 5-6 days adventure… however it is rather risky because the road is very dubious. The “Route Nationale 5a” which runs alongside the coast is Madagascar’s most dangerous road and is not driven by any travel agency worldwide. Only May-Dec.
