Madagascar Holidays

Madagascar is legendary for its unique flora and fauna, and rightly so. This huge island arguably offers visitors the most distinctive wildlife holidays on the planet. Madagascar’s riches include unique landscapes like the tsingy of Ankarana, the spiny forests of the south and the tropical island beaches in the northwest. But for most the number one attraction of a Madagascar holiday is the lemurs, of which there are over 90 species. Innumerable other nature highlights include the world’s smallest and largest chameleons, an abundance of exquisite geckos, and over 100 types of birds found nowhere else. (See our Lemurs Facts Infographic for more insight on Madagascar's lemurs).

Tailor-made Madagascar holidays & small group tours

Our specialists can tailor-make an individual Madagascar holiday of your choice – see our suggested itineraries for ideas of what works best. Alternatively, you can sign up for one of our popular small group, in-depth wildlife tours. Either way, we will provide you with knowledgeable and experienced drivers and professional English speaking guides during your time in Madagascar.

Why book a holiday to Madagascar with Rainbow Tours?

We have the most extensive choice of holidays to Madagascar of any UK tour operator and can take you to all the highlights as well as the less visited corners. Our Madagascar team has been travelling in, writing about and arranging holidays to the country for over 15 years. Derek Schuurman, the team leader, has written and contributed to several guidebooks about Madagascar, including the authoritative Bradt Guide to Madagascar and Globtrotters Madagascar holiday guide.

We are very proud of our Madagascar programme. As well as offering the most popular wildlife reserves and beach destinations, we have pioneered Madagascar travel to lesser-known and more remote places like Anjajavy, Ifotaka, Marojejy and Masoala. We continue to explore the island so that we can enrich our choice of Madagascar holidays, whilst we continue to support worthwhile tourism and conservation enterprises, particularly in the remoter regions.

Madagascar Development Fund

We are honoured to work closely with the Madagascar Development Fund (MDF), a non-profit organisation that finances small development projects in rural areas.  If you are interested in spending the day with Brian Donaldson, the former (and last) British Ambassador to Madagascar visiting some of these projects, we would be delighted to arrange a full day trip for you to gain insights to the real Madagascar.
