Madagascar is a unique place on earth - eighty percent of its flora and fauna are found nowhere else on earth. With over 30 different species of lemurs, unusual plant life, a fascinating culture of 17 distinct tribes, plus strong Indo-Malay and French influences, Madagascar is an ideal destination for the adventure traveler.
The journey starts in Antananarivo with a city tour, followed by a visit to Ambohimanga, where former Merina monarchs had their summer palaces. Our journey continues to Ranomafana, known for its thermal baths and a namesake national park, where we search for lemurs and endemic bird species in a lush rainforest.
In Isalo National Park, we encounter wildlife while exploring grassy plains and sandstone ridges (with fanciful hoodoos). En route to Berenty Reserve, explore the Antanosy tombs. In the park, wander through spiny forests, famous for their varied and abundant wildlife. See ringtail lemurs, sifakas and nocturnal lemurs - and if we're fortunate, we may see striped civets and "flying foxes"!
We wrap up our adventure with a day of bird, lemur and reptile viewing in Perinet Reserve before our return to Antananarivo.
