Most of us are a little hipper to Madagascar than Marco Polo, who almost seven centuries ago called it “… one of the greatest and richest Isles of the World . . .” The country, which drifted away from Africa 60 million years ago, continues to amaze its relatively few visitors with rampant greenery, sweet beaches, reefs, forests, and exotic wildlife—80 percent of which is found nowhere else (including its 30 species of signature lemurs). This customizable journey introduces you to its natural wonders in the company of expert guides and luxury lodgings.


Ajajajvy was probably the most wonderful place I have ever stayed. Loved being surrounded by lemurs and private beaches, great food and the kindest staff.
