Highlights of our “languid” safari beach trip

it’s easy… we fly in and out,  stay at authentic bushcamps and discover 5 forest ecosystems through guided walks and 4×4 drives. There isn’t a better way to explore this remote tropical island.

We spend the first 4 nights 3 km from Ifotaka on the banks of the Mandrare River. Camping under tamarind trees on the site of an old colonial sisal plantation.  Discover the endemic wildlife of Madagascar with early morning and late afternoon guided walks (avoiding the heat of the midday sun!). Night walks are good for spotting reptiles and nocturnal lemur. Visit local markets and learn about the Antandroy with a tour to discover their ceremonies and traditions. Food is excellent with lobster, fish, steaks and croissants!

Moving on to Manafiafy Beach & Rainforest Lodge for 4 nights living beside the rain forest and the Indian Ocean. An amazing spot, perfect for birding trips into the mangroves, canoeing, snorkeling and picnic lunches. Explore nearby islands by boat and climbs the 15ft whale observation tower.

Best time to go

  • October and November – the weather is pleasant but not too hot, the jacarandas are flowering, and the lemurs have babies… always fun to see.
