1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We loved the canoeing and camping part of our trip, and the amazing hikes. The people, the animals and the scenery in Madagascar are so special and unique, it feels like a million miles away from normal life.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take clothes for all seasons! We went in the early-spring season, and it ranged from being very chilly (especially in the evenings) to very hot in Tsarasoa and the drier regions. Also, take some gifts for the local people and children. We took pens and football items, and they went down very well. Go with a relaxed and embracing attitude - the pace of life is very different in Madagascar.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We visited some areas with reforestation projects, and felt that we were supporting tourism generally in what has been a very difficult time for Madagascar in terms of visitor numbers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We had an outstanding vacation, which was seamlessly organised and delivered by the vacation provider. Our guide Hery, could not have been better and his boundless enthusiasm and passion for the country made our trip even more special.
