Nous avons voyagé avec KIJANA TOURS dans le Nord et étions impressionnés par la beauté des sites comme les "tsingy rouges" or the three bays where the beaches cut and remain intact. Diego is an airy and pleasant city, we walk through the streets of the city with ease. But the highlights were the meeting of cocoa and vanilla planters. A trip really to do ! Less
