About Madagascar

Madagascar is unspoiled and spectacular. Abundant in nature and wildlife and set just off the coast of Africa – east of Mozambique, west of Mauritius – this remote island is alluring to adventurers and nature lovers alike. It is balmy year-round with a few rainy months from mid-December to end March.

Conservation is essential in protecting the rare and exquisite wildlife and wildernesses from population growth, deforestation, overfishing and poaching. We select accommodation and activity partners who are equally dedicated to helping preserve the surrounding nature and wildlife, as well as empowering local communities.
