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

Conquering the Grand Tsingy

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

Be prepared for the long traveling days and the risk of an upset stomach (take supplies of Imodium and rehydration sachets). Saying that, the rewards are an abundance of wildlife and amazing landscapes that are unique and a once in a lifetime experience.

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

The tour did visit a local wildlife sanctuary and our tour leader did find out of the way places in small villages to purchase food and gifts.

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

Fantastic. Our Tour Leader was very knowledgeable and looked after the group very well. The trip is filled with a varied and extremely interesting itinerary that includes amazing landscapes and unique wildlife.

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

Singing around the campfire with the porters and impressive landscape in Isalo

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

Dress warm for Peak Boby. Mosquitos are not a problem in July. This is a very busy itinerary, I loved it but for those wanting relaxation or time to themselves this is not the trip for you. Tana is not a great place, if you have extra days don't spend them in Tana

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

Yes. Locals were used as porters and in Ifaty a local group provided entertainment in the Hotel

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

Excellent. It was very well organised, made the most of the time available (which made for a very busy schedule). I was pleasantly surprised by the varying landscape
