Private Madagascar tour
Description of Private Madagascar tour
There's no better way to find out more about Madagascar other than this private 16 day tour. You'll experience everything from the exotic wildlife and golden sand beaches of Anakao to the semi-arid highlands of the south and the dramatic canyons of Isalo National Park.
Exploring in the company of a personal guide and driver allows you to learn as you travel as well as opening up an array of answers to any questions you might have along the way.
Meeting Malagasy communities, on their level, is another important part of making the most of Madagascar with opportunities to understand the country's conservation initiatives adding to a truly unique experience.
Rounding off this 16 day tailor made tour with two full days at the beach is a brilliant way to unwind and remember all of your adventures. However, this is your holiday so please feel free to suggest a pace and itinerary that you think would suit you best.
PlanetThe environment and sustainability is high on our list of concerns. We take pride in the achievement of a healthy balance between environment, local people and YOU, the tourist.
We do not encourage or promote any unethical business or wildlife activities. As an example, Madagascar is a place where people may want to visit places where people can touch lemurs – we never include this in any of the tours we offer as we learned that these lemurs are not always treated well and that they will never be released into the wild. Moreover, their babies will also remain captive for their whole lives. We tell our clients that they should not touch animals as it is not ethical practice.
Our wildlife safaris or tours are run by experienced locals who rely on the National Parks for their livelihoods, and operate in the respect of local and international wildlife standards. Visits to nature reserves and national parks are popular among holidaymakers to Madagascar. We give instructions to both our clients and guides on how to minimise impact on environment disturbance to the wildlife.
We ask people to travel light and not to take plastic material with them if possible. We also encourage them to eat at least once a day outside their hotel in order to support local businesses.
We ensure that the hotels that we choosing for our holidays are doing something good for the environment, from recycling through growing their own fruits and vegetables to using solar power.
To ensure environmental awareness of our clients we provide them with detailed environmental information about places they visit, and how they can help.
PeopleResponsible tourism satisfies these social needs through contact with local people, and takes us further up the ladder to self-actualisation and realisation through creative activities, knowledge and exploration.
Our mission is to bring tourists closer to local people, their traditions, customs and beliefs. We provide many opportunities for our clients to experience what is the ‘real’ country.
We encourage and include many local projects in our itineraries. For example, in Madagascar we offer the chance to be part of a locally run project to stay in the village with locals and help them with their everyday activities.
As James Beard once said “Food is our common ground, a universal experience.” Therefore, we encourage our clients to try to learn how to cook local dishes by interacting with local people. While touring, we suggest to them that they can visit local art museums, see local performances and respect local people and they beliefs.
Ambalavoa visit: Ambalavoa is a fascinating little town in the central highlands, south of Fianarantsoa. The town is known for its paper-making, silk making and wines. When visiting this places we encourage that you buy local products to support local comunities.
