They say a picture paints a thousand words. As such, our 1000 Views of Madagascar tour could scribe a book on the colourful and character filled country that is Madagascar, an island waiting to be explored. Discover the best of Madagascar during our fascinating 12-day tour with lemurs, colourful tribes, tropical beaches, bustling markets and ever-changing scenery. The adventure begins in Tana and travels through unspoilt nature, the dense forests of Andasibe, the eroded hills of Antsirabe, Fianarantsoa, Isalo National Park, Ifaty and Tulear

Description

Tour safari through Madagascar, starting and ending in Antananarivo – 12 Days


Tour Highlights:

Antananarivo – Antananarivo is a city for walking. Some of the most interesting places and views will be chanced upon during leisurely walks – that may climb haphazardly over the hills. Tana is truly a lovely Madagascar vacation destination and spending a few days there will be a great experience!

Andasibe National Park – Topographically, the area is characterised by low hills covered by a degraded forest and dotted with a few small, attractive lakes.

Ranomafana National Park – The main tribal group in the area is the Tanala, who are known for the honey they produce, as well as for their ‘tavy’ (slash-and-burn) farming methods. Visiting the Ranomafana National Park is a great highlight of any Madagascar tour.

Fianarantsoa – The markets and the bargains that you can get in this Madagascar town on vacation are endless… Fianarantsoa is the place to go to experience Madagascar in its authentic beauty and raw lifestyle. The city has a chilly high-country feel to it and can get quite cool in the evenings. To the west of Fianarantsoa is Mt Kianjasoa (1374 m).

Isalo National Park – Park National de Isalo, also commonly known as Isalo National Park, was established in 1962 and covers 81,540 hectares of wildly eroded sandstone massif. The grassy plains are surrounded by sandstone ridges sculpted into various wild forms, and secluded in the rocks are many Sakalava Tombs.

Ifaty An ideal place for diving, snorkelling, seasonal whale watching

Reniala Park– A small reserve hosting baobabs, spiny forest and some of the largest chameleons in the world.

    We have just returned from our first ever trip to Africa and Madagascar, both trips booked through Jenman African Safaris. We have travelled a lot to many countries sometimes on our own and sometimes in small group tours and both these trips delivered beyond expecation in everyway. They delivered a 20 out of 10 experience, in every respect .On the Botswana Wild Life breakaway the guide, Ntando, driver Alex, vehicle, accommodation and inclusions of activities and game sighting were superb. Value for money I don’t think you could better ). We booked on a fully accommodated small group tour (12 in total in our group) and all terrific company for the 14 days starting and finishing in Vic Falls in Zimbabwe.

    The tour completes a circle driving down to Hwange NP in Zimbabwe (a highlight) across to Botswana and on thru to Namibia and includes so many highlights I can’t list them all. Suffice it to say that we saw more wildlife, often all at once when you came across views over waterholes, than we could possibly have imagined, the accommodation was extremely comfortable some even luxurious and the food and wonderful. We followed the Botswana adventure by flying back to Joburg(over night) and then onto Madagascar for the Jenman 1000 Views ofMadagascar 10 days package.

    We are the first of any one we know to go to Maadgascar and the expereince was wonderful in everyway. You have your own vehicle and driver/guide meet you at the airport and take you on this amazing beautiful adventure seeing not only the stunning and ever changing scenery of Magagascar from the highlands through to the rain Forest in the East and then down to the flatter spiney deserts of the south, extraordinary fauna and flora at every turn but more than that was the incredibly interesting introduction to and expereince of Malgassy people, their life and their culture. We chose to buy the Accommdation upgrade which delivered wonderful unique Hotels/Lodges , with incredibly spacious and comfortable rooms and superb food.

    Again this trip delivered so much better value for money than we could have imagined. This is a must do trip for anyone interested in travel. The Malagassy welcome tourists and have superb infrastructure for providing a safe and extremely comfortable experience while taking in all the unique scenes and experiences. We are in our late 60’s early 70’s and the trip requires a degree of fitness but having you own vehicle and guide allows for some flexibilty. We loved every minute of it. Do it while you can!

    I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Madagascar and after doing some research, decided to try Jenman Safaris as they had been recomended. The trip and service were excellent, itinerary included everything that I had hoped to see and experience. I think their consultants are really knowledgable and went the extra mile to ensure the trip was exactly what I had had in mind. Next trip is a given and I am looking forward to doing their 1000 Views of Madagascar this year, now that I have explored the North. Can’t wait to see more of this wonderful country.
