Masoala National Park
The Masoala Peninsula is one of the largest areas of virgin rainforest in Madagascar, and it contains the most unclassified species of animal – probably! There is a national park here that protects some of it, and this can only be reached by boat; it s a fairly exclusive location. The forest is constantly changing due to the opposing forces of deforestation and conservation, so you are quite likely to be in a unique position to see something that will never be the same again.
It is possible to explore the coastal waters, mangroves, coral reefs and rivers of the park by canoe; snorkelling and guided forest walks come as part of the package on these trips, and it is common to see humpback whale in the bay.
