A land of lush vegetation and lemurs.

Situated some 400km off Africa’s eastern coast, Madagascar, the world’s fourth largest island, is a spectacular, natural paradise, home to variety of breathtaking landscapes, from lush rainforests to arid deserts, and pristine beaches, to rugged, lunar-like canyons, along with a wealth of flora and fauna, 80% of which are not found anywhere else on earth.

This diverse topography allows for a wealth of adventure activities, including diving, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, kitesurfing and much more, whilst there is also plenty of opportunity for more tranquil pursuits, and for exploring the rich, and diverse culture and history of this fascinating island.

June to September is the best period to visit as the weather is dry and this coincides with the whale-watching season.

We recommend a minimum of 7 days.
