Description of Madagascar adventure holiday, off road explorer

This Madagascar adventure tour leads you on an expedition across the world’s fourth largest island and one of Africa’s most fascinating destinations. You’ll be accompanied by a small group of likeminded travellers as well as expert tour leaders and local guides.

Despite the country’s size, we won’t make use of local domestic flights because they are largely unreliable. Instead, we’ll take things slowly, travelling by 4WD from Madagascar’s verdant highlands to the wild landscapes of the west coast. From here we’ll make our way from Morondava to Tulear using remote coastal tracks. In this little visited part of the country, we’ll meet some of the local tribal people, including the Mikea hunter-gatherers and the Vezo fishermen.

We will also visit some of the country’s better known attractions, including Isalo National Park and Ranomafana National Park as well as taking the time to walk through the countryside and meet the Malagasy people.

Responsible tourism

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.


We have a strict environmental policy to make sure that the environments we visit are not damaged or spoilt in any way. Our “Leave No Trace” ethic is applied to this trip and as tour operators, it is something we are careful to promote. Your guide on this trip will have been trained to uphold this policy and all clients are fully briefed on appropriate/responsible behaviour whilst in wilderness areas.

We are very aware of the economic, ecological and ethical impact tourism can have on ancient cultures and fragile environments. We realise that taking clients through this region can have a negative impact on the environment if not handled responsibly and as such, on all of our trips we go to great lengths to minimise the negative and accentuate the positive - after all, there are also many good things that the traveller can bring.

By keeping the group size to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites we visit – particularly important as this trip visits some delicate ecosystems.


In Madagascar we use local ground handlers - this means that all the operational costs go directly into the local economy and helps to improve employment opportunities in remote regions. By incorporating homestays, locally owned hotels, family run restaurants and the services of guides and drivers into our itineraries, we ensure that money you spend on your trip goes directly into the local economy and local communities benefit from tourism.

In order to facilitate an enduring support structure for the communities we visit, and to show a commitment to these values, in January 2009 we set up a charitable foundation through which we can directly channel funds to both existing NGOs and our own development projects. In addition to organising ethically sensitive tours, having our own charitable foundation allows us to raise money – through the cost of our tours, charity trips and fund raising events – which can then be used to fund various projects in education, sanitation, reforestations and a number of other important issues facing developing communities.
