Explore the Unique Heritage of this Enchanting Land!
October 4-19, 2014
We invite you to join us as we explore
the natural heritage and unique wildlife of
Madagascar in 2013! This 16-day expedition
offers travel enthusiasts an exceptional opportunity
to become acquainted with the fauna
and flora of Madagascar.
Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the
world, isolated from the African continent for
30 million years. It is home to at least 12,000
plants—a high percentage that are unique to the
country. Ninety-five percent of the lemurs and
reptiles, 80 percent of the flowering plants,
98 percent of the palms, and more than
100 birds are found nowhere else.
Leading this tour will be Herilala Jonah,
a superb Madagascar naturalist, who has led
many Madagascar expeditions for us.
The itinerary includes:
- Antananarivo & the Lemur Park. Visit
the capital city of Madagascar and this private
reserve established in 2001 for lemur education
- Perinet Reserve, in the eastern rain forests.
Look for the largest of the lemurs, the indri,
noted for its ear-shattering cries and agility in
traveling through the rain forest canopy. Explore
the moist forest with trees covered in epiphytes,
ferns, and large lianas with bamboo below.
- Berenty Reserve, an internationally
acclaimed wildlife reserve in the semi-arid
south. Enjoy the unique spiny desert plus a
profusion of ring-tailed lemurs, sifakas, lepilemurs,
and flying foxes.
- Isalo National Park, an extraordinary landscape
in the southwest with arid sandstone
ridges sculpted by wind and water, with lemurs
and endemic plants.
- Morondava & the Avenue of the
Baobabs, an iconic landscape near the coast
in western Madagascar, soon to be a national
We hope you will join us for this adventure,
