For discerning travellers wishing to experience Madagascar's incomparable diversity in comfort, this sample itinerary is an excellent choice. To understand the island's widely constrasting ecotypes, the trick lies in visiting one location in each of its three chief climatic/floristic zones. This itinerary begins with a trip to the sub-desert South, where the exclusive Mandrare River Camp is well positioned to enable guests to experience the 'Spiny Desert' and to see its iconic wildlife.
Afterwards, experience the complete opposite with a trip to the great rainforests of the wild Masoala Peninsula in the humid North-east. Here, guests stay in 'treehouse' tented bungalows in Masoala Forest Lodge, fronted by a deserted beach and backed by verdant coastal rainforest. Day and night walks in these rainforests are sure to reveal wonderful and rare wildlife unique to the Malagasy rainforests.
Complete the overview with a visit to Anjajavy Le Lodge, which, being as remote as the previous two properties, is located on a discreet peninsula on
the sunny West coast, accessibe only by means of light aircraft transfers. Anjajavy protects a large tract of West Malagasy tropical dry deciduous forest, brimming with rare and endangered wildlife.
At all three locations, accommodation and hospitality are of an impeccable standard, and all are reached by means of light aircraft transfers. The trip can be done from May to early December and as it is a sample itinerary, we'll be more than happy to tailor it to suit individual requirements and special interests.
