The "Unique Madagascar" trip starts and ends in Antananarivo. It is a wildlife safaris and game drives tour that takes 11 days taking you through Antananarivo, Ranomafana National Park, Andringitra National Park and 4 other destinations in Madagascar. "Unique Madagascar" is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Explore the spectacular national parks and unique wildlife of Madagascar. The Island of Madagascar is synonymous with the exotic, if not the quirky. Separated from Africa millions of years ago with the break up of Gondwana, Madagascar has its own unique cargo of endemic plants and animals. Lemurs have occupied most mammal ecological niches of the forests and spectacular chameleons are iconic reptiles. The vegetation varies from arid Spiny Forest in the south to tropical rainforest in the north and east. We explore the spectacular collection of the island's national parks, taking in the full diversity of the land and animals, including the Isalo, Andringitra and Ranomafana National Parks. Our daily wildlife adventures contrast with the comfort of pleasant hotels and tented accommodation, combining the best of local style and French colonial charm.

Overall an enjoyable trip as we were fortunate to see a number of Lemurs and the weather was good. Surprised that we did not see a lot of the endemic plants on this trip and not much bird life.
