Discover Wildlife In Madagascar 17 days

  • Private tour

This trip is one of our best because it combines the best of West and South Malagasy. You will enjoy the culture of Malagasy manners without time constraints. It brings together discoveries, adventures, beautiful beaches and trekking that familiarize you with the landscapes of the West, and allows you a smooth circuit in our seaside stays. From the lagoons of Ifaty to the Tsingy.

We do not take the same route on the way back so that you can see as many sites as possible during your stay: this is the spirit that inspires us when we build a circuit. Often, the return of a tour is done by plane to reach the capital. In addition to a significant financial impact on the cost of stay, Air transport also has a negative ecological impact on our planet. In addition, the road conditions make it easier to take the plane to avoid long and fatiguing stops.
