Madagascar is one of the world’s great natural wonderlands—it’s long known to be one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet! The island is famed for its vanilla (and maybe a cartoon or two!), but on this tour you will veer off the beaten path to explore and discover some of the island nation’s pristine wilderness via kayak and on foot.
Paddle mangrove swamps and enjoy rainforest walks. Spot lemurs, chameleons and abundant birdlife, before ending with a few days on a perfect Indian Ocean beach. Madagascar is a “must-see-now!” country and this trip is a great way to do it.
Days 1-2: Travelling from the verdant capital city of Antananarivo to Fort Dauphin, on the island's southeast coast
Days 3-5: Virtually non-stop paddling: in the conservation habitat of the St. Luce Reserve and to off-the-beaten-track Belaveno, a town with rich indigenous history
Days 6-9: Kayaking and relaxing on Manafiafy Beach, blanketed by soft white sand and thatched-roof huts, with endless options for more adventures
Days 10-11: Returning to Antananarivo via Fort Dauphin
