Madagascar: Island of Lemurs              

The itinerary for this 12 day adventure to Madagascar is designed to provide the best opportunities to see and photograph Lemurs in the wild and marvel at the incredible range of other wildlife in this amazing large and diverse country. We concentrate on two prime locations that are home to many species of Lemur, and offer an optional 5 day extension to Kenya’s Masai Mara

Madagascar may be only a few hundred kilometres from Africa but it is like another world. Indeed it is far enough from the mainland that, over millions of years of evolution, the plants and animals have evolved into some of the strangest on the planet with over 80% being found nowhere else on Earth. There over 70 species of lemur - unique to the island - and even amongst these species there is a great diversity including the Aye-aye, the Sifakas and the Indri. In this biodiversity hotspot many species of birds, reptiles, insects, amphibians and flora are also endemic to the island. On this tour we concentrate on Berenty Private Nature Reserve famous for the “dancing” Verreaux's Sifaka and Andasibe-Mantadia National Park where the Indri may be seen.
