Madagascar

Pink and Purple skies of Madagascar with dark baobab trees

Madagascar is a unique country. Not only is it the fourth largest island on the planet it is also home to a diverse array of different species that are simply not found anywhere else. These include more than half the world’s chameleons and dozens of species of the energetic lemur.

As well as unique wildlife Madagascar is home to a wide variety of differing landscapes, offering the opportunity to experience a variety of terrains on your trip. Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve is a beautiful labyrinth of limestone, Baobab Avenue is lined with giant magnificent trees, Isalo National Park has a rugged terrain with waterfalls, ravines, cliffs and gorges, and Nosy Be is a volcanic island offering stuniing and relaxing beaches.

Unless travelling for an extended period it is unlikely that you will be able to see all that Madagascar has to offer, so it is important to decide what your interests are for your trip . We offer three group Madagascar tours that are each quite different, as they focus on exploring an individual region.

Recommended Accommodation

When is the best time of the year to visit?

The different regions in Madagascar have differing temperatures and rainfall throughout the year, so it will depend on where you are planning to visit as to when will be the best time to go. If you are looking to visit multiple regions then we recommend visiting in September or October as these months are good in most regions. These are also the months to visit if you are looking for a beach stay on the eastern coast. Whilst many are tempted by stays over the summer/Christmas period this time can be extremely hot, and there is a risk of cyclones.
