Madagascar Holidays

Madagascar Tours for Adventure and Wildlife

The Pioneer team and our local partners have a deep knowledge and understanding of Madagascar. Without doubt it’s our favourite destination! We are in awe of its human culture, a unique mix of african, asian and arabic ethnicity,  the country’s stunning geography and incredibly high level of biodiversity,  virtually unrivalled anywhere in the world due to its separation from the African mainland for millions of years. Such is our passion for everything Malagasy, we love developing itineraries for holidays to Madagascar.  Having operated here for 10 years, we have developed an unrivalled range of trips to Madagascar from wildlife and nature trips to adventure, trekking, climbing, kayaking, rafting, cycling and photographic tours.

Whether you are looking for a family adventure holiday in Madagascar or you are a solo traveller or couple wanting to join some like-minded individuals on a small group trip or are looking for a more relaxed guided wildlife adventure you can trust Pioneer Expeditions to deliver the perfect Madagascar trip.

Our range of Madagascar small group trips generally run with between 2 and 8 persons (plus guide, driver and porters if camping or kayaking/rafting) .  And many of our trips can be run with  just  2 people  or can be tailormade to meet your interests, preferences and dates. Please ask us to provide further details on our tailormade travel services. The best time to visit Madagascar is from March to December but it should be noted that the climate varies between regions and this should also be taken into consideration when planning a trip. We are happy to provide further details as required.
