A Madagascan safari is quite an experience… A chameleon the size of your forearm, a primate that sounds like a whale and the giraffe-necked weevil are but some of the oddities that will blow your mind on on the isle of Madagascar. This 225,000 square mile island off the east coast of Africa is the oldest island in the world and is home to the most incredible biodiversity, much of which is found nowhere else on earth. All safaris here are walking as you explore the various rain forests and arid woodlands in search of some of the world’s most bizarre and fascinating creatures.
Most of the plants, birds, reptiles and mammals on the island of Madagascar are to be found nowhere else on earth, making this a true biodiversity hotspot and a must see destination for those fascinated by nature and our planet. You will be able to splash in the warm tropical waters at various smaller islands and remote beach locations and we encourage you to enjoy the island at your own pace. Travel in Madagascar is easy by private charter and this is how we recommend you travel here. Planning and timing is key to a successful trip to this truly unique destination, and as we have explored this island on countless occasions, Mammoth Safaris is incredibly well placed to unlock all that Madagascar has to offer. As all the safari exploration is done on foot, we recommend you arrive with a degree of fitness to make the most of your adventure.
