About 50 kilometers east of Ambalavao, Ambohimahamasina is a small village off the beaten path. There are some unique ecotourism opportunities through the local FIZAM (Fizahantany Ambohimahamasina) association, which brings together French- and English-speaking guides who lead treks through the rainforest corridor linking Ranomafana and Andringitra National Parks. These treks can include stops at tiny rural villages, where visitors are welcomed to learn about traditional basket-weaving and agricultural practices, share a meal, or even spend the night. These activities are all solidarity ecotourism initiatives part of the NGO Ny Tanintsika, which seeks to improve healthcare, education, and quality of life in the region, while at the same time protecting the environment.
