Why Madagascar?

The Island of a thousand facets: in the East, an exuberant tropical forest source of life; on its highlands, the serenity of its rice fields; rather to the west, the mystery of its karst peaks of Tsingy; head to the north, perfumed paradisiac islands of Ylang-ylang; all along its coast, the simplicity of its villages of sinners and wherever you go, the Malagasy welcome you with a smile and great kindness.

A jewel of nature: the Big Island is a real "hotspot" of biodiversity.

A very singular richness, all the lemurs are endemic, the majority of the birds do not exist anywhere other than Madagascar ... 90% of the plants on the Island are unique: citing only the baobabs and the orchids.

An authentic destination: Its population is a complex mosaic unified around a genuinely Malagasy value system. And his culture is as original as it is engaging.

From the moment we arrived in the country until the day we left

I wanted to thank you, Olive and Detours Madagascar, for all of the hard work you put into organizing our recent trip to Madagascar.

From the moment we arrived in the country until the day we left, it was clear that no detail had been overlooked. You made sure that our time in Madagascar was as enjoyable and memorable as possible.

We truly appreciate everything you did make this trip a success. All of your hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed and I'm so grateful for everything you did.

Thank you again for all of your hard work and for making this trip so special.

Malagasy Mosaic

We were attracted by marvellous nature, climate and kind people.

We had very good time in Madagascar. We had super guide Harison who knows his work perfectly. Due to Harison we learned much about  Madagaskar.

Harison took good care of us. He is inteligent, smart and he made a good humour. Always was funny.

All the hotels were very good. When one of us had a health problem he got help from La Bella Donna personel and was cured in one day. They cooked a magic tea.

Our local guides Patrick, Roxy and Pedro were kind, professional. All the trips were organized as per our request.

We were attracted by marvellous nature, climate and kind people.

We have advised our friends to visit Madagaskar. If any of them decide to visit you they will get all contacts from us. Our daughter and his husband planning to visit Madagaskar next spring already.

Once again thank you and who knows perhaps someday we will come back.

Cynthia and Harison, thank you for our marvellous trip.

Best regards to all DETOURS MADAGASKAR team
