Starting and ending in Antananarivo, the "Madagascar Adventure" tour is a guided trekking and hiking trip that takes 21 days. You will travel through Tsiroanomandidy, Manambolo River, Antsirabe and 11 other destinations in Madagascar. "Madagascar Adventure" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A complete exploration of the enigmatic island 'continent' of Madagascar. Discover the diverse wildlife and ecology of Madagascar on this unique multi-activity tour. Madagascar is the world’s fourth largest island and about the size of France. Isolated from Africa millions of years ago it has evolved an incredibly rich ecology and landscape that is as bizarre as it is unique. Home to one of the richest ecosystems on earth, you will be in awe of its quirky lemurs and endemic varieties of Baobab trees. Madagascar is "home" to nearly one-quarter of all the flowering plants in Africa. It also boasts ninety percent of the known species of lemur and half the world's population of chameleons. Marvel at the diverse landscapes, from lush tropical rainforest to semi arid and jagged limestone pinnacles. The local people, who are descendants of seafarers from the Indian Ocean, are proudly distinct from the peoples of continental Africa and are unfailingly polite and hospitable. We explore the spectacular collection of the island’s national parks on this itinerary including the UNESCO World Heritage site of Tsingy de Bemaraha.
