Tailor-made Madagascar holidays

If you’re thinking about a holiday in Madagascar you’re probably keen on wildlife and want to see the unique lemurs (the only place in the world they exist), or perhaps you’re looking for an unusual luxury beach holiday with a touch of wildlife and nature too. We can tailor-make a Madagascar holiday to be exactly what you want.

We had a special eye to eye experience with an indri and baby - after a long climb we emerged opposite an indri sitting in the top of a tree. After about 5 minutes a little black bundle of fur uncurled itself from its mother's abdomen.

Special things to do and see in Madagascar

Madagascar is the only places to see lemurs, but in addition it’s excellent for unusual flora (baobabs and other spiny forest species), strange spiky limestone formations called tsingy, fabulous beaches and fascinating culture. Read about some of the wonderful things you can see and do in Madagscar.

When to go to Madagascar

The best time to come to Madagascar is from about April to December, avoiding the monsoon months of January to March. For general wildlife, we’d recommend June to October, but birders would be better off in November or December if you can cope with the heat.
