Madagascar Rainforest, Culture and Beach

Inspirational natural wonders holiday to Madagascar

See most of the iconic lemur species on this holiday, as well as Madagascar's beautiful rainforests, spiny forests and tsiny rock formations, all whilst getting to grips with the cultures of the island. You will have three stops in three vastly different landscapes. Activities will range from day and night walks in the forests, city tours of scenic Antananarivo, boat trips, visits to local villages, sundowners amongst ancient baobabs, birdwatching and time relaxing on the beach.

You will encounter a staggering amount of endemic fauna and flora from lemur species, such a Indri and Verreaux's Sifakas, to octopus trees, chameleons, hairy crabs and Madagascar's largest predator - the rare and elusive fossa.
