Madagascar Private Journey

Custom-Tailored Adventure in the Land of Lemurs

Overview

The island-nation of Madagascar shelters an unmatched abundance of rare plants and animals, including more than 100 species of lemur, the engaging treetop acrobats found only here. Even Madagascar’s chameleons are unique, from the huge, multi-colored Parson’s chameleon to the inch-long Brookesia micra. In this natural history paradise of unique ecosystems, we bring you a Private Journey with exclusive accommodations, charter flights, top-notch naturalist guides, and flexible activities each day, from sundowners among the baobabs to early morning bird walks and exciting night excursions into the forests. Explore the trails of the lush eastern rainforests at Andasibe, one of Madagascar’s premier reserves, home to the famous “singing” indri lemur as well as a host of birdlife and endemic flora. On Madagascar’s northwest coast, Anjajavy, a deluxe Relais & Chateaux property in its own private wildlife reserve, is a unique tropical ecosystem that shelters a multitude of wildlife, from the common brown lemur to the Coquerel’s sifaka or tiny nocturnal mouse lemur. Reptiles range from amazing native chameleons to leaf-nose bats, and the birdlife is prolific. With activities tailored to your taste, enjoy abundant lemur-viewing, night walks, sunset boat rides, snorkeling, and kayaking in the mangroves. Extend your Madagascar journey with pre- and post-trip extensions to Mandrare River Camp, set in the otherworldly spiny forest of southern Madagascar, or track mountain gorillas in Rwanda’s Parc National des Volcans.
