Tailor Made Luxury Holidays to Madagascar

A luxury holiday to Madagascar is both wonderful and unique – it truly is the most overwhelming and wonderful country. Perfect for a couple or family holiday alike – a Madagascar luxury holiday is an explorer’s dream!

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. Call us now to design the perfect luxury holiday to Madagascar for you!

Madagascar Family Safaris

A Madagascar family holiday offers a really different and unique family experience. Whilst the country does not offer the concentrations or magnificent large animals that a traditional African luxury bespoke safari does, it does offer the most amazing holiday imaginable! One needs to be focused, as being the fourth largest island in the world, travel can be long, although we tend to use the local airline where possible.
