Madagascar in Style

This superb fly-safari focuses on two deluxe properties in south eastern Madagascar that provide access to an incredible range of activities, allowing you to get up close to both Madagascar's wildlife and culture. Along the way, look out for ring-tailed and sportive lemurs, chameleons, owls, geckos, flamingoes and the flying fox (Madagascar's largest bat). Finish in the beautiful sandy bay of Manafiafy where the forests and mangroves come right down to the sea.
