Group Size
Limited to 10 Travelers
A very important feature of our Madagascar safari is the small group size, as nature travel is best experienced with fewer people, in order to enhance intimate encounters with wildlife and nature.

Take this trip on a private basis, traveling exclusively with your immediate family, multi-generational family or group of friends. Click here for details and pricing.

Physical Requirements
Moderate to Difficult
In order to participate fully in this adventure, guests must be able to hike unassisted for at least 3 miles in a single stretch along dirt trails, up and down steep and sometimes slippery slopes, over or around tree roots that protrude from the trail, up and down tall steps cut into the paths, and occasionally off-trail and into the brush over wet leaves, tree roots and through hanging vines to see wildlife. The group may do multiple hikes during a day, and total distances may exceed 5 miles. Travelers must be comfortable crossing a sturdy bridge over a gorge, walking through sand and into knee-deep water to climb into and out of a boat with assistance, and walking along wooden boardwalks without a railing. All guests must be able to climb stairs unassisted.

Throughout the itinerary we will travel with more than one guide, allowing us to divide the group by varying physical ability level, to accommodate those who prefer more or less demanding hikes. But in all cases, guests must meet the minimum physical requirements as explained here.

Days are often long, as mornings typically start before daybreak with dinner served after sundown. All wildlife-viewing activities happen on foot and require a combination of endurance, balance and a good view of the trail underfoot. Trekking poles can be very helpful, enhancing stability, and we will provide them to anyone who wishes at any point during the trip. Most hikes are considered moderate with regard to exertion level, though some are more difficult, particularly in the rain forests where terrain can be especially rugged and/or slippery. While our longest excursions can last up to four hours, we move at a leisurely pace, interspersing many stops to view wildlife in the trees around us with bursts of more moderate exertion as we trek between wildlife sightings. While all activities are optional, those who can walk longer distances on more strenuous trails will gain the most from this trip and may see more wildlife species that reside deeper within the forest. Longer and more difficult hikes may be offered in certain areas when time permits, though guests have the option of whether or not to seek that extra challenge, since we are able to split the group according to different physical abilities. 

Our private chartered flights utilize unpressurized turbo-prop aircraft that may fly as high as 10,000 feet. Elevations can reach 4,700 feet above sea level during our excursions. Temperatures can be quite cold in some areas, especially during the months of July and August, while heat in other areas can demand greater exertion, particularly on September through November departures. Some roads are winding, and guests prone to motion sickness are advised to carry medication for such conditions. Other roads may have potholes, creating rough driving conditions and possibly causing you to bounce in your seat.

On custom or private departures with smaller groups, our ability to accommodate varying levels of physical abilities or interests is limited, since these trips are staffed with a single Expedition Leader who may be assisted, pending availability, by local guides.
Important Information About This Trip
Madagascar’s varied ecosystems offer a range of nature encounters. We will hike in rain forests (which can be hot and humid), take boat rides to view wildlife, and we may have the chance to snorkel, for those who desire. Participation in all physical activities is optional. 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 African 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. Changes to the itinerary may occur in order to take advantage of conditions unique to the season and/or to accommodate unexpected internal chartered flight schedule changes; therefore, itineraries may on occasion need to be rerouted or redesigned without notice.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
You must arrive in Antananarivo, Madagascar by 3 pm on Day 1 for a 7 pm welcome dinner. You are free to depart Antananarivo any time after 2 pm on the final day (Day 13).

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 800-543-8917.
