Unearth the unique treasures of Madagascar on this in-depth adventure.
Take an in-depth journey into Madagascar and learn what makes this island nation so incredible. Madagascar's wildlife has developed in isolation for millions of years, and the vast majority is endemic to the island as a result. There are 33 species of lemur and you'll have an opportunity to meet them as you travel the country visiting remote national parks, pristine beaches, winding rivers and towns and cities with a culture all their own.
Wander around 800-year-old trees along the Avenue of the Baobabs.
Cross the Big Tsingy via suspended bridge.
Float down the meandering Manambolo River on a morning canoe trip.
Stay in a cottage deep within the Ranomafana National Park, surrounded by lush rainforest and countless species of flora and fauna.
See how many species of lemur you can spot in Isalo, Andasibe and Ranomafana national parks (there are 33 different types!).
Chill out at laidback Anakao – this Malagasy seaside village will provide you with plenty of R&R after a massive Madagascar adventure.
A good level of fitness is required for this trip, there are treks and camping and long journey it is a long trip so we recommend being in good physical condition to get the most out of your trip.
There are two nights of river camping on this tour. There are no bathroom facilities and it will not be possible to shower for three days, though water is available for washing.
It takes a while to see all this trip has to offer, and some of the places we visit are remote, so you need to be able to manage long travel days and bumpy roads.
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 wifi or air conditioning, but also for charming, tucked away locations you won’t quite believe are real.
The visible vertical drop at the Big Tsingy can be quite intimidating especially for those with vertigo.
This itinerary includes a canoe ride along the Manambolo River.

For this reason, we do recommend booking any international departures until departure day.
