Embark on a voyage of discovery to Madagascar, an island country whose unique flora and fauna, amazing scenery and fascinating cultures make it one of the world’s most extraordinary destinations.

You will take in an incredible diversity of landscapes, from the arid plains of Isalo National Park with its dramatic sandstone rocks, to the lush rainforests of Andasibe. Here you will have the opportunity to meet some of the country’s most iconic creatures – including the impressive Indri lemur – and discover endemic plants with the help of knowledgeable guides.

This itinerary concludes with a five-night stay on an enchanting private island off the coast of Nosy Be, where you will stay in a thatched bungalow with uninterrupted sea views. With fine white sands, exceptional corals and turquoise waters literally at your doorstep, there are few finer ways to end an adventure in Madagascar.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
