Is this trip right for you
  • Although anyone with a good level of fitness should be able to partake in this trip, there are several challenging guided day walks through the many national parks, which can be hot and humid. Please ensure you bring sturdy hiking or trail shoes and comfortable clothes.
  • Road conditions in Madagascar are notoriously very poor and unmaintained. Due to government inaction and yearly monsoons, conditions can be terrible and a level of patience is required. Most of the driving days on this trip will be long and bumpy.
  • Sometimes, you’ve got to rough it to get among it! Some accommodation is basic and may not have the creature comforts of hotels in bigger towns and cities. Be prepared for no wi-fi or air conditioning.
