Not far from the city center, about 5 km away, stands the Ambositra Palace. Building faithfully reproducing the plans of the previous Rova destroyed a few centuries earlier, it attracts a large number of visitors. Just like them, one can discover during a visit of the site the house of the king, baptized Tranovola, as well as that of its advisers. In addition, this hill offers a breathtaking view of the vast rice paddies that seem to extend as far as the eye can see.
Go hiking in the country Zafimaniry
Apart from its abundant rice fields, Ambositra is also famous for its handicrafts, and mainly for Zafimaniry art. A car ride to the village of Antoetra will allow you to admire the undeniable talent of Zafimaniry for finely working wood. These decorations with unusual geometric patterns beautifully adorn the furniture, the wooden elements of the houses, and even the kitchen utensils. A long hike in the company of a professional guide allows to discover the sites a little more difficult to access. You can admire the flora and fauna of the surrounding primary forests at your own pace, and taste the passage to the simple joys of the bivouac.
