Reforestation in the Makay
The aim of this ‘conservation through exploration’ trip is to educate, inspire, and raise both awareness and funds in support of critical reforestation programmes. This exploratory mobile camping adventure into the Makay promises to be a unique adventure: raw, invigorating, and unlike anything else in Madagascar.
Madagascar is an immensely rewarding, challenging and transformative destination, no matter where you choose to visit. Peeling back the country’s layers, the Makay stands out as a terra incognita: even within Madagascar, few people have heard of this extraordinary mountain range. Spreading over a staggering 4,000 square kilometres, the Makay is formed by the eroded remains of large crystalline rock massifs, and is home to unique landscapes and stunning biodiversity.
In May 2019, NWS Founder & CEO Will Bolsover travelled deep into the heart of the Makay alongside Evrard Wendenbaum, co-founder of the environmental organisation Naturevolution. Joining them were Vanity Fair’s Michelle Jana Chan, cinematic storytellers Untitled Film Works, an assorted conglomeration of scientists, and a crack team of Madagascar’s most experienced guides. Watch the video below to get a glimpse into the Makay.
