Durrell Wildlife Expedition Madagascar, Aldabra & the outer Seychelles

With Durrell and Martin Thompson
Durrell Wildlife Expedition Madagascar, Aldabra & the outer Seychelles Durrell Wildlife Expedition Madagascar, Aldabra & the outer Seychelles

These remarkable places with their unique wildlife will occupy much of our time on this, the fifth and possibly most exciting expedition in association with the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. We will explore these inaccessible island chains and the blue vastness of the Indian Ocean to discover the wildlife and charms of remote islands and distant shores.

We have again chartered MS Island Sky for which travels regularly in these waters and is the perfect small, expedition ship for this area. Using the zodiacs and an experienced Expedition Team, we will land on empty beaches, tuck into small ports and have an excellent base from which to explore in comfort and style.

There will be time for walking in two of the major national parks of Madagascar, each having different wildlife and terrain from the other, as well as swimming and snorkelling in clear blue waters. Aldabra and its associated islands and atolls are simply astonishing both for their variety of endemic species above and below the water, the sheer brilliance of the colours and the sense of remoteness and peace.

Embarking in Dar es Salaam we set sail for Madagascar, via the mountainous volcanic island of Anjouan with its steep forest-clad hillsides, we have 4 days in Madagascar before sailing through the outer coral island archipelagos of the Seychelles to finish in Mahe.
