Ideal for someone who wishes to explore off-the-beaten tracks
Arrive in the lively Malagasy city of Antananarivo, take an ox-cart transfer to your hotel, fly over to one of the many islands such as Nose Be and Ille Saint Marie to enjoy the beautiful beaches. Take a trip to Mahajanga and search for the many types of lemurs (Western Woolly Lemur, Fat-tailed Dwarf Lemur, Mouse Lemur), experience the rainforests and waterfalls and search for the Humpback whale.
WHEN TO GO:
Avoid February and March as this is the rainy season. Rest of the year temperatures are warm and pleasant. Baby lemur season during October and November, whale season during July and August.
