We had wonderful days. Each day different with experience of culture, landscape and wildlife. Madagascar is a wonderful country.
The holiday exceeded our expectations. Travelling with our guide/driver through the incredible landscapes and differing tribes we learnt so much about the culture as well as enjoying some wonderful wildlife experiences.
Sinead was incredibly helpful, understanding, quick to provide answers and provided for us a superb itinerary.
Our guide/driver's knowledge was impressive and he (Harry) was able to talk about wildlife, landscape, geology, history and culture. The guides at the reserves were good.
Social & Environmental Responsibility:
We understand that our local agent puts part of their fees back in to the community. Obviously the hotels and local guides are supported by our visit. Certainly were it not for visits then the reserves would be under threat.
The places you stayed
Convenient, quiet and safe from the bedlam of Tana.
A lovely location with superb food. Very comfortable room and our whale trip was great. The quad bike journey was a well worth while adventure!
Lovely location, food was good. Cabin though was cold and damp (it was in the valley side which did not get sun).
This was a comfortable stay. The lodge was well laid out and spacious. We were away from the beach so backed on to the road which was noisy at times. The food was good and we felt relaxed here.
A needs must stay. The lodge was comfortable and the food good
Setam is very convenient for the reserve so we had a couple of days of limited driving which was nice. The lodge was comfortable and the food good.
A beautiful hotel. Lovely location. Fantastic lodge and lounge/restaurant. Food was good although given owned by a Frenchman we expected better food (and coffee). We were very comfortable here.
Ifaty, west coast
Our beach side lodge was very comfortable with great views over the sea. The meals were good and in a comfortable location.
A real star! A bit of a pain to get to however well worth it as once through the doors a real haven of peace. The room was very comfortable and sitting by the pool in the afternoon very relaxing. The meal was good (no choice) in very elegant surroundings. A lovely end to our holiday before setting off home
