Experience the magic of enchanting wildlife in a tropical island paradise. Luxury holidays in Madagascar encapsulate a range of different experiences all in one fascinating destination.

Why travel to Madagascar

This beguiling island is bursting with untamed jungle, diverse wildlife, captivating scenery and beautiful beaches. There is no doubt that you will have the best wildlife holiday here. In the east, you can experience the Andasibe National Park, home to the endangered Indri, the largest member of the Lemur Family.

Learn about the Malagasy culture and their fascinating customs in the south, and view some of the most stunning sandstone rock formations. Take a hike through the canyons of I’salo National Park, visit the spiny forests home to vast numbers of Ring-tailed Lemurs and Sifikas, or the world heritage site: Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve.


In the remote west, sit back and relax on some of the most unspoilt beaches we have come across and stay in one of Madagascar’s more luxurious lodges. Or travel up to the little-known north-east coast where a stunning private island project has revolutionised luxury travel in the country, while supporting the incredible marine life that inhabits the area.

To really explore Madagascar, prepare yourself for some long drives but remember they are worth it, although best not to try to see all at once as logistics are difficult

What our clients say

My trip to Madagascar, a place I had dreamt of visiting as a child was organised to perfection. I saw indris, ring-tailed lemurs, dancing sifakas, a pygmy lemur curled in a tree, rocky sandstone escarpments, primeval and spiny forests alongside pristine beaches. The diversity was incredible and I can never thank c+l enough for arranging this breathtaking experience.

What our clients say

I would recommend this package unconditionally. The itinerary c+l planned was perfect. The lodges were all outstanding in comfort and service. Our Ultimate guide was superb - extremely knowledgeable in all areas, excellent driver and a pleasure to be with for 10 days. We were obliged to cancel our tour last year; c+l rebooked everything for this year, avoiding cancellation fees.
