  • Explore Mitsinjo Forest – a privately-owned reserve that’s giving back to the local community and promoting conservation – on a guided night walk where you’ll be lucky to catch glimpse of nocturnal species likes endemic butterflies and lemurs.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Although anyone with a good level of fitness should be able to partake in this itinerary, there are several challenging aspects: guided day walks through the many national parks can be hot and humid. Please ensure you bring sturdy walking shoes and comfortable clothes.
  • Road conditions in Madagascar are also notoriously poor. This means some of the driving days will be long as well as bumpy.
  • Sometimes you’ve got to rough it to get amongst it. Some accommodation inside the national parks is basic and may not have the creature comforts of hotels in bigger towns and cities. Be prepared for no wi-fi or air conditioning. But also for charming, tucked away locations you won’t quite believe are real.

Astrid · Traveled October 2023
This is an amazing trip, where you will learn more about wildlife, nature and local life by visiting national parks and villages. Some travel days are quite long, but this allows to see a lot of the countryside. The landscapes are very diverse so there's always something interesting to see along the way. If you don't like spending time on a bus, this trip is not for you, but otherwise this is a fantastic trip.

An excellent trip to discover beautiful Madagascar. There is a lot of great walks in forests, fields, etc... to discover life in the countryside and of course great wildlife (lemurs, chameleons, frogs, ...). The walks are not difficult but a minimum of stamina is required. Barnabas was an excellent leader, knowledgeable, always enthusiastic and he contributed greatly to the success of this tour.
