Madagascar tailor made holiday, Reef and Rainforest
Brilliant, eye opening, once in a lifetime experience...Seeing and hearing the Indri in Andasibe was breathtaking and our guide was brilliant. (more)Anita Chapman
This was an absolutely superb adventure, great people, amazing wildlife, stunning scenery. (more)Claudia Biedert
Excellent...Seeing lemurs in the wild was the most memorable part. (more)Hilary Wilson
From 2980 - 3650 including UK flights
Small group holidays to Madagascar
The most fantastic holiday we have experienced and totally different from any location we have been to. The tour company was first class in every respect...Be prepared for poverty, humble experiences, lack of electricity but don't let this put anyone off going to this wonderful country. (more)George Bannister
As I expected not 'comfortable' but an amazing experience (more)Jean Maclean
Seeing five out of six possible types of lemur in the first National Park we visited...Excellent. (more)Gill Berry
From 2195 excluding flights
Southern Madagascar holidays, Lemurs, baobabs & beaches
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of the holiday was visiting the National Parks in Madagascar. Tips? Beware of the tour description because it's deceiving. For example, day 4 of my tour was described as: "We will set off early this morning towards Antsirabe (via Tana)... Once in Tana, the journey takes approximately 3+ hours on a good, windy road." Well, the reality is that the road has sections in such bad condition that the car could go no faster than 10 miles per hour,... (more)Alex Carballo-Dieguez
From 1695 excluding flights
Trekking holiday in Madagascar
Memorable parts? Singing around the campfire with the porters and impressive landscape in Isalo Tips? Dress warm for Peak Boby. Mosquitos are not a problem in July. This is a very busy itinerary, I loved it but for those wanting relaxation or time to themselves this is not the trip for you. Tana is not a great place, if you have extra days don't spend them in Tana Local benefits? Yes. Locals were used as porters and in Ifaty a local group provided entertainment in the Hotel Overall...

Madagascar wildlife holiday
A fabulous destination which requires time, patience and determination to achieve the best experience. Probably the best wildlife experience outside East Africa or Galapagos. (more)Clive Porter
It was a unique experience which we thoroughly enjoyed (more)Tui Couch
From 3990 - 4560 including UK flights
Madagascar school building project
Memorable parts? Going somewhere so completely different, being looked after by friendly, funny, knowledgeable and entertaining local staff. Sharing an experience like that with total strangers who become friends for life. Meeting the kids who will directly benefit from the work you are doing. Hosting a party and dinner for the village. Cramming all of us and all our kit into a truck for hours. The list is endless. Tips? Get in touch with the other volunteers in your group before... (more)Alexis Liming
From 595 excluding flights
Madagascar charity volunteer programme
Memorable parts? Wow, where do you start? That first lemur you spot after trekking for miles through a remote forest. The warm welcome from the local people and all the kids waving to you every day. Having so many laughs each day. Meeting so many different and interesting people and feeling like you have a second family by the end of it. The sense of achievement as you see the school you're building start to take shape. The food is so good, the scenery is breathtaking, the sun rises stunning,... (more)Travis Armstrong
From 2000 excluding flights
Marine conservation holiday in Madagascar
Was the best thing ive ever done in my life...and if i could afford it i would go straight back (more)Charlie Panayi
The most memorable part of the holiday was meeting people and scuba diving/snorkelling...It was fantastic! (more)Amy Hall
The whole trip was simply amazing!...Firstly the camp is set in the most beautiful place, and on a good night the stars are unbelievable. I've never seen so many! Must have seen at least 5 shooting stars a night as well as the cosmos! (more)Daniel Williams
From 1900 excluding flights
Madagascar holidays, island adventure
Madagascar proved such an outstanding destination that it almost seems unfair to single out particular highlights...Ace. We loved it from first to last. We covered a great deal of ground and saw so much for the first time. (more)Maggie Wood
The 7 hour night trek (two hours in pirogue up river each way) to look at Madagascar wildlife in the rainforest, most of which in pouring rain, with a very good guide was the highlight. (more)Ann Monk
From 3860 excluding flights
Madagascar rafting expedition
We canoed for two days, negotiated rapids and camped at night on the sandy banks beside the river. The locals were intrigued by these strange foreigners who chose to sleep in tents rather than a hotel but readily came to our rescue when our cooking pots sank to the bottom of the river! (more)Rosemary Llewellin
Most obviously just the many people we met. Everybody says it but it really is true, what a lovely lovely bunch of people to have had the privilege to meet. On the wildlife front, I think the spitting cobra trumped even the komodo dragons! (more)Hayley Fagg
From 1950 excluding flights
Trekking and rafting expedition in Madagascar
Excellent... witnessing the Indri lemurs calling to each other in the trees in front of us and rafting the river rapids were probably my top two memories (more)Kerry Abbiss
Everything, perhaps taking the freight train at 2am alongside mountains of bananas. From the point of landing to our sad farewells it was an unforgettable adventure...Unforgettable. (more)David Phillips
From 1595 excluding flights
Lemur conservation project in Madagascar
Memorable parts? The very first morning at Saint Luce, we were up pre-dawn and walked down to the estuary. There several pirogues took us across the lagoon to the mangrove waterways and then back again. The round trip was about 3 hours, initially mainly silent except for bird identification, the sunrise added to the atmosphere. Part of the mystery and beauty of Madagascar was revealed on that memorable morning. Tips? Read every bit of information sent out by the agent about ten times... (more)Alison Anderson
From 600 excluding flights
Madagascar holidays, The lost continent
A once in a lifetime experience to a country of extremes that will change rapidly and much of the wildlife and unique plants is about to disappear for good! Go while it's still there! (more)Garry Crompton
I highly recommend Madagascar as a holiday destination...Seeing lemurs, chameleons, birds, other creatures, the landscape (more)Janka LACKOVA
The leader was fantastic, an enthusiastic, knowledgeable man with great people skills. He had a love of his country that shone through. It was educational and I enjoyed it very much. (more)Linda Brightwell
From 2399 - 2799 including UK flights
Highlights of Madagascar holiday, tailor made
Memorable parts? The whale watching. Tips? To plan in advance, especially in high season, because we had problems finding the flights to choose an area to visit (North-West, North-East or South..) as the country is big and moving around is not that practical: passing three times in Tana and having to spend three nights there was really a waste of time and it's not worth it. Local benefits? We travelled around, we dined in local restaurants, we bought local products, we used... (more)Cesare Maraglio
From 1700 excluding flights
Madagascar holiday, Lemurs, canals & mountains
Memorable parts? Canoe trip and seeing lemurs Tips? Itinerary is too ambitious. Be prepared for a lot of driving on very bad roads - on most travel days you will spend over 8 hours driving with only a break for lunch. Local benefits? Employed local guides and supported conservation activities in national parks Overall rating? Itinerary was too ambitious. Travel times vastly underestimated, most travel days we spent over 8 hours driving. Due to the state of roads and... (more)Lorraine Anthony
