The Explorations Company, where no two journeys have ever been the same

For any Francophile, Madagascar is a wonderful melting pot. The result is a sort of Franco-African laissez-faire that completely suits this highly individual country which is populated by people who are incredibly friendly, big-hearted, courteous and kind.

The capital, Tana, is an interesting city with a melange of local and French architecture. In the north of the country, think pristine beaches with gorgeous lodges and hotels (from Robinson Crusoe chic to Relais et Chateaux), private catamarans complete with skipper and cook, so that one can simply relax and snorkel or fish with a guide each day on their Madagascar luxury holiday.

Amazing wildlife, from over 70 species of lemur to tomato frogs; kayaking around the Masoala Peninsula – which houses three marine parks and a huge rainforest; African-style tented camps on a beautiful river with superb walking and guiding; incredible tsingys – sand or limestone features. Whale-watching with hydrophones. Great walking through stunning desert scenery with magnificent baobab trees and deciduous forests.

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
