Isolated by millions of years and miles of Indian Ocean, Madagascar's exotic wildlife, cultures, and landscapes transport the intrepid traveler into a strange and wonderful world. All of the island's mammals, most of its birds, and over eighty percent of its plants are found nowhere else on Earth, creating a nature-lover's dream. Be captivated by lemurs literally dancing across trails, gigantic baobab trees framing tropical sunsets, and brilliantly colored birds and butterflies flying among a thousand species of orchids.

Just as Madagascar is unlike anywhere else, our journey to this otherworldly destination differs from any other tour. Rather than of viewing the island's wonders only from vehicles, we get out and hike deep into the most remote mountains, river valleys, and rainforests. This is an ideal trip for active travelers who long to experience firsthand Madagascar's unparalleled nature on a once-in-a-lifetime expedition!
