Where is it?
What is the best time of year to go?
The climate of Madagascar is tropical, and this largely determines when you take your trip. From November to March is the summer, otherwise known as the wet season which is hot with variable rainfall. The dry season is mainly dry and mild and falls between April and October.
February and March are the cyclone season, so it is best to avoid these unless you want to see the orchids, which flower in February. April and May shows the vegetation off to its best after the rainy season and the coldest winter months are when the animals are least active.
The best months to visit are October and November; the weather is pleasant but not too hot, the jacarandas are flowering, and the lemurs have babies which are always fun to see.
For birding the eastern rainforest is best from mid September to January whilst the other areas are good all year round.
How to get there
By international flights to Antananarivo and back again. We will take care of all arrangements during the entire time you're in Madagascar.
Tips and Notes
The section in southern Madagascar requires an adventurous spirit because of the long distances and dirt roads.
The journey itself is compensated for by the everchanging landscapes, cultures, handicrafts and the different tribes and fauna and flora found live in Madagascar.
