Birding Tour Madagascar: The Remote North 2017



Our Birding Tour Madagascar: The Remote North is good for serious listers who may have already done the basics of Madagascar; the standard Madagascar trips that most birding companies do allow one to see perhaps 80 % of the endemics given almost a month (including extensions), but visits to more remote sites is needed to “get” the others. The main such site is visited on this trip, allowing birders to connect with some of the rarest, most range-restricted, and endangered species on the planet. These include Madagascan Pochard, Madagascan Serpent Eagle, Slender-billed Flufftail, and Red Owl. Not only is the birding spectacular, but so too is the scenery and the variety in the fauna and flora that one picks up along the way. The trip, however, is quite strenuous and the camping fairly basic. But the birds available soon make one forget about the lack of common luxuries. However, it is better to join our standard tours if you want proper accommodation and want to see a great deal of what Madagascar has to offer – this trip is for those who want to get closer to “cleaning up”.

We also offer trips to other remote sites within the massive island of Madagascar to search for Tsingy Wood Rail (at Bekopaka) and for Sakalava Rail (at Lake Kinkony). Please contact us for details.

This tour can be combined with our Birding Tour Comoros and Mayotte 2017.

What our clients say

We’ve been on several birding trips, both local and international, with Mike and highly recommend him as a guide. Mike does a great job not only because he has a sharp eye, but also because his hearing and memory of bird songs and calls is outstanding. Mike is always prepared and knowledgeable about the location, habitat, and wildlife. His enthusiasm is great and his concern for his clients is even greater. I have never seen anyone do a better job of making sure everyone on the trip sees the birds. Most of us have experienced the frustration of just not being able to see a particular bird, usually one that everyone else sees. Mike will help you with that–he either gets it in the scope or he provides a clear description of the bird’s location, doing everything humanly possible to be sure birders at all levels get to see the bird. No matter what happens, Mike maintains unflappable good humor. We have been pleased with the extensive background material Mike provides, enhancing our enjoyment of the trip. Birding with Mike is fun AND rewarding. We very much want to go on more trips with him.
