Madagascar

So close to Africa, yet so vastly different in culture, terrain and biodiversity, Madagascar is a special place; it’s like nowhere else on Earth.

Curious wildlife, rare indigenous cultures, a primitive landscape and pristine beaches make Madagascar a stand-out destination.

The lush highlands of Madagascar’s centre stand in stark contrast to the open savannah of the west and cactus forests that characterise the southern tip, and no island of its size can boast its diversity.

Home to hundreds of endemic species, including lemurs, chameleons and butterflies, the east African island is a destination for wildlife and nature enthusiasts.

Join us on an authentic experiential journey as we seek out indigenous lemurs, birds and reptiles, amongst a backdrop of verdant green hills, sparkling azure ocean and towns with a twist of French colonial style.

When to Go

Due to its size, Madagascar’s climate varies from region to region, but overall the best time to visit is between April and November, outside of the wet season. October to December is a good time for lemur spotting, while August and September are the best months for migratory birds. Expect cooler, wetter weather in the central highlands.
