EXCURSION TO SEE THE WATERFALL AND GEYSER

Language English, French
Cost 260 USD for tour/excursion
Capacity Group of up to 10 people
Duration 2 days

The geyser and Lily's waterfall are unique sights in Ampefy and Analavory. The best season to visit these two attractions are from January up to April because there is enough water at Lily's waterfall. You can even visit these both places from May up to December but the sight at this Lily's waterfall is less gorgeous. Anyway the sight at geyser always remains the same regardless which season you go to there.

When you have two full days in Antananarivo, I would recommend you to spend few days in the country side to admire these sights.

I would like to give you below details of the plan when you will do this tour from my services
