Safaris in Madagascar
are unlike any other African destination in Africa. Split from the super-continent, Gondwana, in prehistoric times, with it, it bought no large predators, allowing it to become a magnificent biodiversity hotspot, where the native plants and animals could evolve in relative isolation.
With no real threat to humans, and a completely different, yet beautifully diverse terrain to mainland Africa, the experience is bound to be different. There is no need for safari vehicles, so most of your safari experience will be on foot. This means you can gain a really close insight into the land and enjoy a more ‘hands-on’ experience as there is nothing separating you from the wildlife and natural wonders. We feel this makes you more involved with your experience and is great for families with young children, keeping them active during the day and entertained with all the wonderful wildlife!
On the beach, you will have time to relax, go snorkelling, take part in water-sports or just drink cocktails by the pool. Anjajavy is one of our favourite beach destinations in Madagascar. Only accessible by air, this stunning beach is also a nature reserve and plays home to a whole host of wildlife, including Coqueral's sifakas and love birds.
Between destinations, travel will usually be by four wheel drive vehicle and sometimes by small plane. Transfers are comfortable and clean, but bear in mind the roads can be quite bumpy at times! Your guides, naturalists and drivers are all experienced, trained, knowledgeable and willing to share their expertise with you.
