Trekking in Parc National d'Andringitra, Madagascar

An amazing country

This is a very full trip and full of interest from the scenery to the wildlife to the people. There is a lot of time spent sitting on the coach, more I think than is spent walking, but looking out at Madagasgar rolling past was never without interest. The accommodation is quite reasonable especially the two nights at the beach resort which was a little paradise. I went September when the country was still needing to green up after the dry winter season but it was still amazingly beautiful and lush in places.

Happy Monsters

An amazing country and a great way to see it, but some questions around the ethical travel policy in a country where exploitation is so evident and the population so poor.

Exodus Response

We are extremely sorry that Sarah felt abandoned during the Air France air pilot strike that regrettably impacted on her group. It is the responsibility of the airline to re-protect all flights, but nonetheless, our aviation team worked hard to intervene in this instance to confirm that our clients were re-protected and were able to return home as quickly as possible. We have received very good feedback from other Exodus clients whose journeys were affected by the strike and we are disappointed that Sarah’s experience was not so positive. We have spoken to all Exodus staff members who were on duty this weekend and it is unclear who Sarah contacted, but we are very sorry that Sarah’s group fell ill at the hotel that Air France accommodated them at; our aviation manager has raised this with our account manager at Air France. An Exodus staff member has recently returned from this trip without raising any ethical concerns, but we will review this set-up to ensure that this tour is running in line with our Responsible Tourism policy. We hope that Sarah has some great memories of her trip overall - Exodus Customer Services

Trekking in Madagascar

A breathtaking trip, with the perfect balance of stunning scenery, fascinating wildlife, cultural experiences and wonderful people! Madagascar is a truly unique country with incredibly warm and welcoming people; this two-week itinerary gave a really good glimpse into what makes it so special. I literally loved every second of it.

TREKKING IN MADAGASCAR

I kind of expected to be 'wowed' by the wildlife, the baobabs (one of the reasons I had wanted to visit Madagascar for so many years), the landscapes and the whole experience, but it was the ability of our guide Armel to provide opportunities to get us close to local people in various situations (e.g. an unscheduled visit to the zebu market) that really stood out for me as the highlight of the trip.

TREKKING IN MADAGASCAR

An interesting and absorbing holiday. A sound introduction to Madagascar in just over 2 weeks. Trekking, towns and a beach to finish off. Landscape takes you through endless terraces of the central highlands, rainforest, Dolomite -like mountains of Andringitra and, desert canyon lands of Isalo. Ultimately the Lemurs have it though.  Accommodation fine (not luxurious) for Africa and excellent local tour leader.

TREKKING IN MADAGASCAR

This was an excellent trip with a good balancing of hiking and doing some touristy things, with absolutely stunning scenery, amazing unique wildlife, and lovely people. It is properly graded with a couple of definite C walking days but otherwise B walks. Note the mattresses provided for camping were too thin so if you have room for a thermorest, bring it. Lunches on many days were simply what we could buy in a supermarket, so bring a penknife and spork. And if you have time, a couple of extra days on the beach at the end are well worth it.

TREKKING IN MADAGASCAR

Not for the faint hearted or unfit, strenuous long days, worth it to get to the remote locations to meet the people and wildlife.  Guaranteed to see a variety of lemurs.
