I'm enquiring about: Magical Madagascar Honeymoon

Magical Madagascar Honeymoon


Our 'Magical Madagascar Honeymoon' takes in many of the island's signature highlights, i.e. Lemurs galore; the Madagascar rainforest experience; 'tsingy'; Baobabs, quiet and beautiful beaches, the psychedelic underwater world and of course, wonderful food and excellent hospitality. 

This sample itinerary is here to demonstrate logistics, but do bear in mind that we can tailor/amend it to suit individual requirements and special interests; it is certainly not set in stone. 

Because Ankarana National Park is not accessible from December to April due to the rainy season, we can offer this particular trip any time from May to end of November.

For honeymooners who wish to experience Madagascar's most popular protected rainforest National Park (Andasibe-Mantadia), in combination with the incredible Ankarana for its geological formations, wildlife and much more, and then enjoy some quality rest & relaxation time in barefoot luxury, this itinerary makes for an unrivalled choice.
