A wildlife haven like no other.

Immerse yourself in the wonders of the Lost World with the UK's leading experts on a Madagascar bespoke safari holiday.

Variously described as the Lost World, a World Apart and the Land that Time Forgot, Madagascar is, simply put, compellingly unique – something in a class of its own. What makes the world ‘s fourth largest island after Greenland, New Guinea and Borneo, strikingly different than the larger three, is an exceptionally diverse climate and consequently a startlingly contrasting range of habitat types.

A mountainous spine containing the Central Highlands, separates the permanently humid, eastern region with its luxuriant rainforests, from the almost otherworldly, semi-arid south where the original habitat, ‘spiny bush’, is justifiably described as ‘Nature’s Botanical Lunatic Asylum’.

Scenically the country is a delight : a mind -boggling smorgasbord of spectacular geological formations beckons visitors with a love for the outdoors. These include the sandstone massif of Isalo ; the 'tsingy' limestone plateaux of Ankarana and Bemaraha, and towering granitic domes of imposing mountains such as Andringitra and Marojejy. The vast majority of tourists come to Madagascar to appreciate its wildlife and flora : a long geographical isolation has resulted to a species endemicity rate in excess of 90%, meaning almost everything you will see while exploring the island, is found nowhere else. Highlights and flagship life forms include 6 of the world’s Baobab species, more than 100 species and subspecies of Lemur, more than half the world’s chameleons, and a stunning array of often weird and wonderful creatures.

We encourage our guests to experience the essence of Madagascar, which lies in its aforementioned contrasts. Doing so, can be achieved by means of exploring at least one site in each of its chief climatic and floristic zones. In addition to visiting a selection of its protected areas, some beautiful coastal sites which in some cases are offset by vibrant reef formations, make for a relaxing end to any Madagascar trip.
