One of our Luxury Travel Managers recently journeyed around South West and South East Madagascar by vehicle with a private guide. She returned with incredible feedback and insights:
“…a magical landscape with Zebu cattle herders, endless colourful farm stalls, terraced rice paddies, towering Baobabs, and women walking miles with hefty bags of grain on their heads…they are a special people with a distinctive culture that is evident in their smiles, food, infectious music, and deep respect for their ancestors and traditions.”
A kaleidoscope of life and colour
High points included trekking in dramatic mountain reserves, coastlines and rainforests; and seeing 11 of the 115 species of indigenous Lemurs. As well as an array of chameleons, butterflies, snakes, birds, frogs, orchids, ancient trees and plants.
“It was a feast for the senses, with each day more awe-inspiring than the last… the landscape, the wildlife and the warmth of the Malagasy culture left me with a longing for more and a desire to share my experience.”
Kim has already begun creating bespoke Madagascan journeys for some of our guests.
