Overview

We have been researching the best national parks and wildlife sanctuaries in Madagascar for several years now. We have always known that the best time to visit is during the months of October and November, but we also wanted to 'factor in' the reliability of the infamous Air Madagascar airline network and focus on the most wildlife rich overland route possible; as the 'jewel in the crown' of our proposed small group tour. This classic road journey, takes us to some the best Lemur habitat in the whole of the country; with visits to iconic parks such as, Andasibe, Mantadia, Ranomafana, Anja (Anjaha), Isalo national park, Zombitse Forest and the Spiny Forest of Ifata. Our group limit of just 6 clients (no other company 'goes' this low) is based on Allan's experience with a group when he travelled in October 2018. Companies who organise groups of more than 8 clients are directly affecting the quality of their clients trip - large groups DO NOT WORK in Madagascar!
