Location of Adventure
Madagascar, Africa
Group Size Limit
Approximately 10 Travelers
A very important feature of our Madagascar safari is the small group size, as African safaris are best experienced with fewer travelers in order to enhance intimate encounters with wildlife and nature.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Internal charter flights as noted, accommodations, all meals from dinner on Day 1 to lunch on final day, non-alcoholic drinks with meals and in vehicles, services of NHA Expedition Leader, local guides, local drivers, and lodge staff, some gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1, permits and entrance fees, and all taxes.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of trip (Antananarivo, Madagascar), alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees, optional activities, items of a personal nature (laundry, massage, phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes, optional travel insurance, and required medical evacuation insurance.
Physical Requirements
This expedition is suited for anyone in good physical health with a willing and adventurous attitude. Please note that most of the required walking activities are considered moderate in terms of exertion level. However, those who can walk longer distances on more strenuous trails will gain the most from this trip. In order to participate in all activities, and thus have the best chance of seeing the greatest amount of wildlife, guests should be able to walk at least two miles, up and down steep and sometimes slippery surfaces, over uneven ground, in hot and humid conditions at approximately 4,500 feet above sea level. More difficult optional hikes of up to eight miles may be offered in certain areas when time permits. Guests must be able to climb stairs and walk on wooden boardwalks in the lodges, and be able to climb into and out of boats. Some of the roads we drive over are winding, and guests who are prone to motion-sickness are recommended to carry medication for such conditions. Other roads may be potholed, creating rough driving conditions or causing you to bounce in your seat. Safari accommodations and vehicles are not heated and several of our adventures take place during the winter months in Africa, so it is critical that travelers come prepared. We suggest that if you have any questions whatsoever regarding your physical suitability for this trip, you should contact our office for further details on the exact physical requirements of their specific itinerary, as well as speaking with your personal physician for his or her opinion. Collapsible trekking poles may a helpful aid for hikes.
Important Information About This Trip
Madagascar’s varied ecosystems offer a range of natural encounters. We will walk in the rainforests (which can be hot and humid), take wildlife viewing boat rides and may even have the chance to snorkel (for those who desire). Participation in all physical activities is not mandatory. We ask our guests to understand that the accommodations in Madagascar are not, collectively, of the standard that may be found in other, more established safari countries. Some lodgings are relatively luxurious while others are plain but clean and comfortable. In all cases, we have selected the best accommodation available at each location. On these trips changes to the itinerary may occur in order to take advantage of conditions unique to the season and/or accommodate unexpected internal charter flight schedule changes; therefore, itineraries need to be rerouted or redesigned without notice.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for our guests' safety. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we request that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We will add the cost of a medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, contact number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
Getting There & Getting Home
You must arrive in Antananarivo, Madagascar by 5 pm on Day 1 for a 7 pm welcome dinner. We encourage you to arrive a day early to be well-rested for our early start on Day 2. You are free to depart Antananarivo after 3 pm on the final day. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917.
