The tour Culture & Wildlife Of Madagascar starts from and ends in Antananarivo. It is a wildlife safaris and game drives trip that takes 7 days taking you through Perinet Reserve, Manamboto and Antananarivo in Madagascar. Culture & Wildlife Of Madagascar is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Experience the traditional lifestyle along the backwaters of the little known Pangalanes canal, and the spectacular national parks and unique wildlife of Madagascar. The essence of Madagascar is the unique wildlife, fabulous rainforests and stunning coast. Until you visit, you cannot imagine that the Malagasy people could be so welcoming. All of these attributes, and more, come together on this wonderful trip. From the dry Central Highlands, we pass through lush rainforest and small village communities where tropical fruits and terraced fields set the scene, to reach coastal fishing villages where nets and Travellers' palms abound. We have both day and night walks in the forest to view colourful chameleons, to observe numerous species of lemurs, and to enjoy the rich forest habitat. Our simple lodges are in the midst of rainforest reserves that are home to lemurs that will delight you with their curiosity and gentleness. On the wild east coast, surf rolls onto white-sand beaches lined with coconut palms that protect both the fishing villages and the expansive fresh water lakes beyond. The villagers here are fishermen, taking fish from both the sea and the pristine lakes. We travel by boat on a series of lakes and along narrow canals, known as The Pangalanes, to reach our lake-side beach hotel. Set in the forest, the hotel is our base for exploring the lakes and villages by boat or on foot. You will be privileged to discover areas far from the tourist trails, and which offers amazing experiences in this remarkable country.

“I traveled with my 16-year-old son after finding a great airfare to Madagascar. I chose this excursion due to it fitting our air schedule perfectly. Our guide was fantastic and the trip provided great access to lemurs and chameleons which were high on our list to see. Our driver was excellent and spoke English well and was well versed in knowledge of his country. We traveled during the summer cool season which was dryer and made life much more comfortable. Fantastic trip for a father and son to make memories.”

“We had the most amazing time whilst in Madagascar, everything was perfect. Our guide was excellent, as were all of the guides who we encountered at various places. The accommodation was great, whilst it was basic it was clean and tidy and the views we had at the National Park and in the Pangalanes was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.”
