Madagascar adventure vacations travel guide
2 minute summary
Once the preserve of wildlife documentary makers and fearless explorers, Madagascar’s uncharted rivers, dense forests and surreal limestone and sandstone rockscapes are now opening their doors – just a crack – to adventurous travelers. The word ‘vacation’ seems inappropriate; there may be a tour leader, an itinerary and an airport pickup, but as soon as you strap your backpack on and head off up the mountain, clamber onto your canoe, or clip yourself onto a harness, halfway up a limestone pinnacle – you suddenly realise that anything could happen. And it may be days before you encounter other tourists. Adventure has many faces on this near-mythical island. You might be meeting remote communities whose lifestyles have changed little over centuries. Or taking a night walk to hear the strange sounds of the nocturnal forest. Or descending into the deep valleys and gorges in search of hidden waterfalls. Let our Madagascar adventure vacations travel guide help you craft your own island adventure.
