Madagascar's wildlife has developed in isolation for millions of years, and the vast majority is endemic to the island as a result.

Is this trip right for you:
  • 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.
