Seeing rural Madagascar by bike Reviewed Tour: Cycle Madagascar

“This was an exciting trip, with varied scenery, and the lemurs don't disappoint! Madagascar is an intriguing country with rural life lived without much western influence. The population were universally friendly. This trip is fairly new and as such not as slickly run as other established trips elsewhere, but it's great nonetheless and Armel is very committed to sorting the fine detail. Good hotels, good food, good beer - A great choice - book it!”

“An astounding country to visit. The scenery was spectacular and various. The people very friendly and of course the wildlife unique.”
Madagascar Moments! Reviewed Tour: Cycle Madagascar
5 - Excellent
“What a fantastic trip. The country is just amazing with constantly changing scenery that was quite unexpected. The people took great delight in cheering us on and were only too happy to have their photos taken with the mad white people cycling in the heat of the day. The cycling was varied, undulations they call it, I call it hills! But the downhill was worth every uphill. One day was mainly off road so that was quite a challenge but very enjoyable. The hotels were brilliant, always had hot water and really nice rooms - much better than I anticipated. Also having 2 nights at several places was great. The seafood at Ifaty was fantastic as were the cocktails! The trip was graded as moderate when I booked but changed to moderate/challenging which is what I felt it was - but a great achievement finishing it in one piece. Madagascar is truly a wonderful country and still relatively undiscovered by tourists so cycling is the best way to really see it.”
Finding King Julian! Reviewed Tour: Cycle Madagascar
5 - Excellent
“It was with some trepidation that I booked to go on the inaugural Madagascar cycle tour, but with only a couple of hiccups, I can quite honestly say this has been the best Exodus cycle tour I have been on. (My 4th). Madagascar is a country of such stunning natural beauty it will surely take your breath away. The trip had plenty of variety with 8 days of cycling & 2 superb days of trekking in 2 totally different National parks - the first Ranomafana - a lush jungle rainforest where everything smells damp & earthy & then Isalo Nat park which was in complete contrast with it's stunning rock formations & canyons & beautiful rich red hues of colour. Both were home to wild lemurs & having them join us for lunch at Isalo was the icing on the cake. They are cheeky & naughty & won't miss an opportunity to steal food. No two days of cycling were ever the same - the landscape constantly changes from beautiful valleys with terraced rice paddies & fields of assorted crops, colourful, noisy villages where the children fall about laughing hysterically at these white people riding bikes! Some real "off road" riding on dirt roads/tracks. Long stretches of road disappearing for miles in front of you, magestic rock formations & the hills! Madagascar is not flat & some days I'm sure we spent as much time going up as we did coming down! The gradients are not too bad though and on our lovely new bikes were easily manageable.”
Fascinating experience Reviewed Tour: Trekking in Madagascar
4 - Very Good
“The trip was a great experience. Madagascar is very different to anywhere else I've been in Africa. The tourist industry is less developed, which in itself added to the 'adventure'. This does mean that there was no alternative to eating in the hotels along the way. We covered a lot of ground, which leads to long hours in the bus, but there is lots to look at along the way, and it's the only way to see all the different locations that we visited. The unmade road to Andringita National Park was an experience in itself - in 4x4 jeeps, with planks on top, in case they are needed (and they were) to enable us to cross basic wooden bridges. We saw less wildlife than I had hoped, but never had the dispiriting experience of seeing nothing!”

Madagascar - Travel Highlights and Travel Tips

A famous island, situated within the Indian Ocean, a trip to Madagascar will make you come close to lush natural landscapes, diverse animal life and a rich cultural heritage. Although it is estimated that the majority (above 90%) of Madagascar's forests have been eradicated, travelers can still take excursions through the forests that remain and maybe even spot the famous ring tailed lemur! Check out these lush forests if you are planning a holiday to Madagascar, and you may find out the inspiration behind the animated movie. 

Travel Highlights

  • Go kayaking and fishing. Travelers can schedule kayaking tours led by guides. This is a popular way to see a good portion of Madagascar. Also, it is a great place for deep-sea fishing. Get away from the crowded beaches and go after some King Mackerel!
  • Plan a wildlife excursions. What better way to get a taste of the wildlife home to Madagascar? Although some of the roads have been for too long unattended, you may get a chance to spot a lemur, an animal endemic to Madagascar.
  • See the Baobab trees. This grove of mystical Baobab trees are sometimes over 800 years old, and beyond worthy of being caught on camera.

Travel Tips

  • For a good meal on a budget, check out some of the local marketplaces. A simple yet satisfying dish of chicken and rice with a vegetable side can be purchased for cheap.
  • Check out some local and informative podcasts. It's always surprising how much can be learned by tuning into a local’s podcast. This is a great way to get the inside scoop on the country you're visiting.
  • Be conscious of how you dress and be careful not to ‘flaunt’ your possessions.
  • Another way of not standing out is to pay for things with smaller bills. Doing so when you're out to eat or buying some souvenirs is a good way to not display exuberant wealth.
