Twelve villagers from Kivalo, in the north of Morondava, left their village in mid-November to southern Madagascar. They have visited the communities of Ranomay, about 150 km north of Toliara.
Ranomay was the final stop to an eight-day journey to eco-tourism sites managed by communities. The twelve representatives of Kivalo's ecotourism community were accompanied by WWF for an exchange field trip.
During the visit to Ranomay, Mrs. Nivo, a cooker from Kivalo, was positively marked by how the local products were prepared into succulent and original dishes. As for Dodo, a local guide in Kivalo, he has asked many questions to his colleagues from Ranomay who already have national guide agreement.
