Description of Madagascar North Coast adventure holiday

An action packed adventure through the wild North West. You’ll trek, canoe, bike and observe wildlife before finishing your trip with a truly unique island hopping experience that includes wild camping on tropical beaches. Starting from the red highlands, this adventure will allow you to go truly off the beaten track; being guided through the remotest of villages and national parks, witnessing striking landscapes as well as spotting the enchantingly unique Madagascan wildlife.

This trip runs as a small group departure, with 13 nights accommodation in a mix of camps, bungalows, hotels and even tree huts, and it can also be tailor made, with optional extensions to take in Nosy Be island or other beaches available. Transport is by road with one internal flight with Air Madagascar, from Diego to the capital Antananarivo.

We loved the canoeing and camping part of our trip, and the amazing hikes. The people, the animals and the scenery in Madagascar are so special and unique, it feels like a million miles away from normal life. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


By supporting the conservation of the rainforest, we can encourage the authorities to recognise the potential of wildlife tourism and photographic safaris, ensuring the protection of this unique environment. You will be issued with instructions as to how you can help to preserve the environment and we hope that you will follow our advice to help make a difference.

Us, together with our local agent and his team will give you a personal and knowledgeable insight of the region. We are very active in reforestation and since 2008 has raised funds for over 1/2 million trees to be planted. For every client booked on any Madagascar trips, we finance one tree per day per client. Our clients are helping to fund a reforestation project in Italavina.

During this trip we will stay in The Litchi Tree, which is completing our sustainable development approach. The Litchi Tree water comes from the Amber Mountain waterfall and is warmed by solar energy.


Our local staff accompanying this expedition will give you a real sense of Madagascan culture. We only use Malagasy guides, pay all staff fair wages and treat everybody on the trip, including staff, with equal respect and we expect you to do the same. It is principally wildlife tourism that brings people to Madagascar and by using local businesses and services we can inject much needed capital into the local economy. On this expedition we are following a responsible camping procedure which leaves no negative evidence of our presence. We stay in small towns and villages interacting with the locals.

We have set up a tree nursery and orchard for a local school in Italavina. We are now in the process of planting (and nurturing) a well designed/equipped 100 tree orchard as well as 100 luguminous and 100 moringa Oleifera (nutrional plants) on a piece of land we have bought for the school. We plan for the first harvest of Ananambo nutritional leaves will be ready by 2014/2015 to supplement the daily diet of students.

Once the trees start growing and with the first seeds (papayas, passiflores, moringa, etc.) a small poultry operation will be launched, providing eggs and occasional meat for special school events. We employ one permanent gardener to maintain and direct student's works and are able to implement this with the support of our clients travelling to Madagascar with us (approximately 2% of the trip cost is donated to this project) and our local partner who is extremely active in reforestation of this area.
