A Wildlife and Cultural Expedition with Roger Williams

Trip Level

The trip is Level 2+, Easy to Moderate. It features day hikes in national parks, with accommodations that range from city hotels to basic wildlife lodges. You should be fit, healthy, and ready for adventure because the walking trails in Madagascar’s parks can be quite slippery and muddy and temperatures can be extreme. Several of the travel days involve long drives and road conditions can be rough.

A Special Note About Travel in Madagascar
Traveling in Madagascar is always an adventure! Changes and delays are all part of the experience. We will make every effort to follow the Detailed Itinerary as described, but please note it may be rearranged due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, including internal flights that are often subject to delay, cancellation, and last-minute schedule changes. In addition, travelers should be aware that there is a scarcity of medical facilities outside of Antananarivo and they may not be up to international standards. A spirit of adventure and a flexible, cooperative attitude are musts. Your reward is an unparalleled experience of one of the world’s most intriguing countries and its fascinating wildlife.


There is great variation in climate due to elevation and wind conditions. Our departure is set for the dry season, but there is still a high probability that we will encounter rain and muddy road conditions at some point on our trip. The equatorial sun is very strong and it is important to be prepared for hot weather and bring proper sun protection. With some variation, daily temperatures typically range from the low 60s to the high 80s.
