Highlights of Madagascar (DMHM)
Wild landscapes, village culture, beaches—Madagascar might be an island but there’s nothing small about it. For those who like to get remote, this isolated island is packed with wildlife, landscapes and people you’ll find nowhere else. (And everybody loves lemurs!) You’ll get to embrace local life but still have time to relax at the beach. Best of all, there’s always a local CEO there to lead the way and provide a link to the unusual and extraordinary.
Highlights: Search for lemurs and unique wildlife, learn about endemic flora and fauna in world-famous national parks, visit local artisan workshops, lounge on the beautiful beaches, savour dinner with a local family
