Description of Madagascar trekking and rafting expedition
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel Ė but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. Itís easy to tick off the big sights independently Ė but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.
We cater for both vegetarians and vegans.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur local agent on this trip will give you a personal and knowledgeable insight of the region. We are very active in reforestation and in 2008 raised funds for 230,000 trees to be planted. For every client booked on any Madagascar trips, we finance one tree per day per client. We have just received our certificate that in 2010 our trips (many of these through rt.com) funded the planting of 400 trees.
It is principally wildlife tourism that brings people to Madagascar and by using local businesses and services we can inject much needed capital into the local economy. On this expedition we are following a responsible camping procedure which leaves no negative evidence of our presence. We stay in small towns and villages interacting with the locals. By supporting the conservation of the rainforest, we can encourage the authorities to recognise the potential of wildlife tourism and photographic safaris, ensuring the protection of this unique environment.
You will be issued with instructions as to how you can help to preserve the environment and we hope that you will follow our advice to help make a difference.
PeopleOur local staff accompanying this expedition will give you a real sense of Madagascan culture. We pay all staff fair wages and treat everybody on the trip, including staff, with equal respect and we expect you to do the same.
