Introduction

This 12 night itinerary will give visitors a glimpse into the rich tapestry of places, spaces, history, cultures and extraordinary yet iconic creatures that make Madagascar so intriguing to visit.


The capital, Antananarivo, or Tana, is home to several million people and is a heady blend of first world modernism, aging French colonial elegance and colourful Malagasy hustle and bustle. You will explore rain forests and deceptively empty arid areas finishing up in a little patch of paradise, complete with lemurs (of course!) and mangroves on the south western coast.


Getting around in Madagascar can be bit of an adventure making this kind of trip ideal to sit back, relax, hand yourself over to someone else and truly absorb the essence of the country, its wonderful people and fascinating wildlife. You will see that we have included a night in Fort Dauphin and a night in Tana at the end - this is because the Air Madagascar flight schedules change constantly we do not want to run the risk of you missing a flight!
