Madagascar
Holidays and Tours

At Undiscovered Destinations we offer small group tours and tailor made holidays that take in the very best of Madagascar.

The island continent of Madagascar is a unique part of Africa, where the normal rules don’t seem to apply. For instance, much of its wildlife is found nowhere else on the planet and many of its people look more Asian than African.

Additionally, Madagascar is also one of the poorest countries in Africa. For this reason our tours often include a visit to a local charity project alongside the normal tour. Furthermore, it must be remembered that standards are not always what you would expect in the west however the welcome you will receive is equally important.

We have a wide range of group tours and tailormade holidays available to Madagascar. Our travel experts have firsthand knowledge of Madagascar and for this reason we explore the spectacular natural rock formations at Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park and Tsingy D’Ankarana. In fact, these are hidden gems that few other operators take the trouble to visit.

A hike through the moonscape of Isalo National Park and the spectacular valleys of Andringitra National Park are particularly recommended. Similarly, if rainforest is your thing, then you must trek through jungles of pristine Marojejy National Park. Here you can search for the critically endangered lemurs, notably the hauntingly beautiful pure white Silky Sifaka. In addition meet the friendly and welcoming Malagasy people. Surely one of the highlights of any visit to the island.

In a word, Madagascar is certainly an adventure. Let us take you there on one of our holidays. You will experience an incredible journey through a truly unique part of the world.

I was very happy with the trip. I especially enjoyed the small activities (wood workers shop, embroidery workshop, etc.)that made it feel like we were doing something on driving days. The guide, Danhy, really made the trip excellent.

Why visit Madagascar?

If your interests lie in natural history or anthropology Madagascar’s intensity is exquisite and almost overwhelming.  In this unique island nation isolation has nurtured wildlife found nowhere else on Earth.

However it manages to maintain a human cultural reserve as rich as any in mainland Africa.  If there is a destination that transcends travel bucket-list hyperbole, Madagascar is surely a strong contender.  Go now.

Madagascar

The island of Madagascar occupies a unique place, both culturally and geographically within Africa. It was separated from the mainland millions of years ago and as a result its fauna has developed very differently from the rest of the continent’s wildlife.

It is home to countless species found nowhere else on earth.

Its people are an intriguing mix of Malay and African ancestry, with complex patterns of beliefs and an unusual history. On this trip we take in the very best of this enigmatic and alluring land.

Our journey takes us to the little visited Tsingy de Bemaraha Reserve, recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site on account of its amazing rock formations. It was virtually unknown to the outside world until twenty years ago. In addition, few other tour operators take the trouble to reach this area. It is without a doubt one of the highlights of Madagascar.

National Parks

We visit superb national parks, including the bizarre moonscape of Isalo and the lush rainforests of Ranomafana. These parks are home to countless species of lemurs including the rare golden bamboo lemur, only discovered by scientists in 1986.

Our tours include Andasibe, one of the best places in Madagascar to see the curious indri. This is the largest species of lemur and with this in mind, we spend time taking walks through the forest in search of the Indri and other endemic wildlife.

Finally, we spend time at Ifaty on the coast which is a relaxing end to the trip. After that, if you have more time to spare why not extend your stay by the beach with our Mikea Forest Beach Extension. Maybe try one of our other extensions to either the pristine forest of Anjozorobe or go tropical on the East Coast with our Pangalanes Wildlife Experience.

Madagascar is unlike anywhere else on earth. Join us to experience its diverse charms on a trip that will challenge what you thought you knew about Africa.
