One normally thinks of Africa when talking about going on safari, but in fact, a Madagascar Safari is something very special too – simply different!
Here, one is looking for lemurs (over 70 different species including sifakas), fossas (a cat- like, carnivorous animal) and then we start looking at the smaller species, such as a multitude of chameleons, brightly coloured frogs, moths and butterflies and of course, amazing birdlife. It is like stepping into a biology lesson, with wall to wall interest!
Perinet and Mantadia are wonderful areas to go on safari and this can be added to the coast which is simply sublime – with great boutique lodges, Robinson Crusoe style resorts and catamaran boats to charter that can take you island hopping. Do consider Madagascar as an alternative – you will be sorry if you don’t!
