Discover Madagascar's unique wildlife, unusual scenery and stunning beaches
Madagascar is a paradise for wildlife lovers, often being described as 'a living museum' - much of its animal and plant life cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The chief attraction is the lemurs. Undeniably one of the most delightful and cute creatures, there are over 70 species spread throughout the country. This full and exciting itinerary offers the amazing opportunity to see these beautiful, yet endangered, primates.
Our journey begins with a full day spent trekking in the primary forest at Perinet, where we hope to see the rare Indri, the largest lemur, as well as some of Madagascar's unusual nocturnal wildlife. We continue south, spending a full day in the cloud forest of Ranomafana National Park, where we hope to see the rare Golden bamboo and Greater bamboo lemurs.
We will go in search of Ring-tailed lemurs in Anja Reserve before continuing to Isalo National Park, where we walk amongst amazing rock formations, visiting Monkey Canyon and the stunning natural swimming pool.
Our adventure finishes with some time on the coast, with a final day in search of wildlife in Tsimanampetsotsa National Park, and with time to snorkel, swim or just enjoy some well-earned rest.
