A Madagascar safari is a unique experience – even within the contact of a myriad of memorable experiences in Africa. Over the years we’ve noticed that there are some common misconceptions about Madagascar which I’d like to address. Madagascar is not for everyone… if you really like good quality accommodation, expect a holiday to unfold exactly as the brochure says and have difficulty coping with change, then perhaps a Madagascar safari is not for you.
However if you have a spirit of adventure. Welcome the unexpected, and are willing to accept some irritations and rustic conditions. Then Madagascar with its pristine flora and extra-ordinary wildlife, could be the perfect holiday for you. We recommend that you visit at least two, and preferably three, of its distinct climatic and floral zones to get the most out of Madagascar.
Unlike many countries in Southern Africa, there really isn’t that much choice in terms of accommodation in Madagascar. Except in the beach resorts of Nosy Be and Ile Sainte Marie. The accommodation is reasonable but usually not of a very high standard. Even a so-called five star resort is not to be compared with a five star hotel elsewhere in Africa. Or the Indian Ocean Islands. We try to tell it as it is in our proposals. So that there are no surprises when you are on your Madagscar safari. So read our comments thoroughly!
