Wildlife holidays in Madagascar

Tell me about Madagascar …

Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world. It lies off the coast of east Africa, across the Mozambique Channel, and straddles the Tropic of Capricorn.

Madagascar enjoys an extensive network of protected areas, most of which are open to visitors. The park fees incurred on a tour in Madagascar go towards maintaining reserves, with some economic benefits to local people ensuring that Madagascar’s tourist industry provides a good incentive to conserve its valuable ecology.

Its exceptional biodiversity and the disturbingly fast pace of environmental destruction make Madagascar a world conservation priority.

Our Madagascar specialist recommends..

"Our ‘Madagascar’s Lemurs’ holiday is our most popular tour, and goes in search of the vast array of lemurs, birds and the other unique wildlife inhabiting the rainforests, dry forests, and spiny desert of this incredible island"

Difficult to further improve.


The accommodation was generally of very high quality…the local guide (Desire Rajery) was extremely good at spotting wildlife. He was also very efficient at organising the trip and was very helpful. The British guide was always cheerful, kind, helpful and enthusiastic. Good knowledge or local wildlife.
Desire spent four hours and walked 10km on our penultimate day to find a Parsons Chameleon for us, a call way beyond his duty and we thank him so much for that. Roland our guide in Isalo also deserved a special mention for his friendliness and efforts to find wildlife for us. Also our guide in Perenty, Maurice, did all he could to find wildlife and make our holiday such a pleasurable one.
