Location of Adventure

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. 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 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 Johannesburg, South Africa by 6pm on Day 1. You will also need to book roundtrip flights between Johannesburg and Antananarivo, Madagascar, departing Johannesburg on Day 2 and returning on the final day. You will need to make your return transportation arrangements from Antananarivo, Madagascar and will be free to depart in the afternoon on the final day. There is usually one flight per day from Antananarivo to Johannesburg and it typically departs in the afternoon, allowing for connecting flights out of Johannesburg after 8pm. However, we strongly advise booking your flights to and from Madagascar in conjunction with your flights into and out of Johannesburg, as this often yields a lower fare and ensures a safe connection time. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of these programs and can arrange the most efficient and cost-effective travel.
