Escorted tours of Madagascar

Explore the wild greenery, intricate coral reefs, ancient cultures, paradise beaches, desert ecosystems, and rare wildlife on a tour of the island of Madagascar.

For nature lovers, heaven has a place on earth, and it just so happens to be the island of Madagascar. A Madagascar holiday is a must for those looking to become acquainted, or reacquainted, with colourful wildlife and intricate, ever-evolving ecosystems. The island just feels alive.

At 226,917 square miles, this Indian Ocean nation is the world’s fifth-largest island. And a fascinating, almost unbelievable array of plants and animals call Madagascar’s biodiversity havens home, from its complex coral reefs and intertwined mangrove systems to its verdant rainforests and vast plateaus.

It’s no secret that the world’s islands are lauded as biodiversity hotspots because of species evolving to survive in ultra-isolated environments, and Madagascar is no different. In fact, the African nation has more than 11,000 endemic plant species and endangered animals including the Silky Sifaka, a large white lemur, and the Ploughshare tortoise, the rarest tortoise on earth.

If you are seeking adventure, you will surely find it in Madagascar. Alternate between the breathtaking UNESCO-listed rice paddies of the high plateau and the water city of Antsirabe for impressive cultural experiences, and immerse yourself in the island’s incredible nature and wildlife in Ranomafana National Park (where the rare lemurs reside!) and the surreal desert landscapes of Isalo National Park.
