This exciting itinerary allows us to experience the incredible diversity of Madagascar, predominantly on foot.

We go in search of lemurs in Anja Reserve and visit Ranomafana National Park, walking through spectacular scenery in the hope of spotting endemic lemurs, including dancing sifakas.

Hotels & Camping
You will spend 8 nights in simple hotels with en suite facilities and 5 nights full service camping in very basic sites.

We use tourist class hotels throughout the trip except during the treks where we camp in the national parks. The hotels are simple but comfortable. Please note that although all the hotels are said to have reliable electricity and water, there may be instances in which you experience some gaps in supply; this is more a reflection of life in Madagascar than the standard of the hotel.

During the camping portions, we will be camping in small mobile two-person tents. The camping is full service so the tents will be erected for you.

Campsites in the parks in Madagascar usually offer only very basic facilities. You should not expect hot showers, flushing toilets and western standards of cleanliness at some of the places we stay. Some toilets may be long drops. Please come prepared. All camping equipment is provided except sleeping bags.

Single Supplement is available on request from GBP290.

These are ‘land only’ prices which require you to book your own flights and join the rest of the group on Day 1 of the trip. For more information please see Trip Notes
