Overview & Highlights

Experience some of Madagascar’s most spectacular protected areas & view unique wildlife in a diverse range of habitats.

These escorted tours are led by highly experienced, internationally praised, professional Malagasy wildlife expert guides.

You will be able to see many species of lemur, including the two largest, Indri and Diademed sifaka and some of the smallest (various Mouse lemur species); endemic birds including Mesites, Couas and Vangas; reptiles such as chameleons and leaf-tailed geckos and a huge array of endemic plants, stunning Baobab trees (two species) and tropical Orchids.

In locations where there are trails of varying grading, the services of two park guides are enlisted to take care of participants: one for those preferring a more moderate pace, and one for those who require a slower pace.

The itinerary includes stop on the coast at Ifaty, bordered by spiny bush habitat, where you have the opportunity to snorkel. Transportation throughout the itinerary is in comfortable 4-wheel drive vehicles.

Accommodation is always in the best available lodges or hotels at each of the locations in the itinerary (please bear in mind accommodation can be basic but will be clean and comfortable).

  • Woolly, Dwarf and Mouse lemurs during night walks

“Madagascar is at the top of every wildlife lovers’ wish list (including mine!). The endemic flora and fauna found here is incredible. From endearing Lemurs to tiny frogs and stunning marine life, a holiday to Madagascar is one of the greatest natural history experiences on planet Earth!”

Please note that participants require a reasonable level of fitness in order to complete this tour. There are some long drives, albeit through varied and interesting countryside. You will need to be able to walk on some arduous, uneven or hilly terrain in certain parks, for at least 3 – 4 hours. (Notably Ranomafana).

Group size: minimum 6- maximum 8.
