This amazing adventure holiday combines the best of Madagascar's trekking with a chance to experience its great cultural and natural variety. Travelling from Tulear on the south-west coast to the capital city of Antananarivo, our first walk is within the Isalo National Park, walking amongst dramatic rock formations, open grassland and forest. A transfer then brings us to the Andringitra Mountains, for a 3-day trek and the opportunity to summit the huge granite dome of Peak Boby (2658m), Madagascar's second highest mountain. We aim to get to the summit as the sun rises - an unforgettable experience. Continuing our journey north, we enjoy the contrast of a day-walk in the decidedly lush rainforest of Ranomafana, home to medicinal plants and several species of lemurs. Our last stop is in Perinet National Park to see the amazing Indri indri lemur with their distinctive call. Craft workshop visits, colourful produce markets and village walks allow plenty of opportunity to meet the friendly people of this engaging and little-known land. Providing an unbeatable mix of trekking and sightseeing, this is a dream holiday for nature lovers.

Is this holiday for you?

This is principally a trekking and walking holiday in Madagascar. However, in order to see as much of this diverse African country as possible, it is necessary to cover quite a bit of ground. The holiday includes 3 full days of driving and 2 shorter days. On these days the driving will not be continuous and the journey will be broken with visits to interesting sites along the way. Some of the roads used to access the remote areas where we trek will be rough in parts. The walking element of this holiday is not continuous or sustained. However the walking days do provide reasonably challenging walking through a wide variety of landscape. During these treks we will encounter rain forest, open grassland and rocky canyon-lands. You should be comfortable with walking for around 6-8 hours each day over several days, mostly on good trails but occasionally over rough and sometimes steep ground. The temperatures can be hot and humid. There are four nights on the holiday that are spent camping and two in a basic dormitory style mountain gite. Otherwise the accommodation for this adventure is in comfortable hotels and lodges and this is also reflected in the overall grade of the holiday.
