- 2012-10-01 - 2014-12-31
Share the excitement of spotting Madagascar’s lemurs as a family
Few creatures can match the mini-monkey cuteness of the lemur and these small but perfectly formed primates are only found on the enchanting island of Madagascar. This fantastic holiday allows families to be immersed in Madagascar’s fascinating traditions whilst also heading out in to the rainforest in search of these adorable animals. For an African safari experience with a difference, children and adults alike will love getting so close to nature before discovering hot springs and hitting the beach.
Madagascar Family - Land of the Lemurs SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Madagascar's charmingly crowded capital, Antananarivo is a fun place to explore with its street markets, restaurants and romantic atmosphere.
The most-visited park in Madagascar, Andasibe National Park is famous for its lemurs but this tropical forest is also home to unique endemic birds such as the long-eared owl.
With the tranquillity of a small European town, Antsirabe maintains a Malagasy touch, which it reveals in its markets and traditional quarters.
Home to 13 species of lemur including the famous golden bamboo lemur, Ranomafana National Park is a haven for small mammals and birds, as well as palms, orchids and carnivorous plants.
Isalo National Park is known for its contrasting scenery of deep canyons, crazy sandstone formations and open grasslands.
The busy coastal town of Tulear is home to the fascinating Antsokay Arboretum - a botanical park devoted to the conservation of plants from southwestern Madagascar. Ifaty is a popular beach resort with good snorkelling and diving on the nearby coral reefs.
The largest city on the island, Antananarivo's French-colonial heritage is evident in its cobbled streets, impressive churches and colonial-style buildings.
Grab a window seat for bird’s eye views across the island on the way back to the capital – a fitting farewell to this amazing animal adventure.
