Birding Tour Madagascar: Best of Madagascar Birds and Wildlife 2018



Madagascar! Our world’s fourth-largest island is, quite simply, unique. Five bird families and five mammal families (including the lemurs) are endemic to this massive island, and half the world’s chameleons, weird and wonderful endemic plant families, and tons of other wildlife can be found here. An astonishing 120 bird species are endemic – including such exotic groups as vangas, ground rollers, cuckoo roller, couas, asities, and mesites. Lemurs vie for attention, from the tiny mouse-lemurs to the marvelous sifakas and the amazing Indri with its calls that resound through the forest. Our tour visits a range of habitats: grasslands, dry deciduous woodland, the bizarre spiny forest with its odd octopus trees (Didiera madagascariensis) and elephant’s foot trees (Pachypodium rosulatum), lush eastern rainforest, as well as lagoons and mudflats. The birds that we’ll look for include the roadrunner-like Long-tailed Ground Roller and the stunning Pitta-like, Scaly, and Rufous-headed Ground Rollers, as well as the highly-prized Subdesert Mesite, the unforgettable Giant Coua, the astounding Velvet Asity, and Madagascan Ibis, to name just a handful. We invite you to join us on a special tour to an amazing island!

This tour can be combined with either our Madagascar: 6-day Masoala Peninsula Pre-tour 2018 (12 – 17 October 2018) pre-tour, or with both pre-tours, adding our Madagascar: 7-day Northwest (Ankarafantsika/Betsiboka Delta) Pre-tour 2018 (6 – 12 October 2018), as well as with our Madagascar: 6-day Berenty Reserve Extension 2018 (31 October – 5 November 2018) for a magnificent full month Madagascar adventure. It can also be combined with our Namibia, Okavango (Botswana)and Victoria Falls (Zambia): 18-day Birding Adventure 2018 tour (2 – 19 November 2018) and, following that, with our Birding Tour Zimbabwe and Mozambique 2018 (21 November – 5 December 2018).

What our clients say

Hello Chris, and I hope your New Year is off to a good start. I’ve just returned from our custom tour with Eduardo and I want to tell you – he is a jewel! Very knowledgeable, approachable, friendly and seems to enjoy birding and helping other birders find and appreciate the birds. I have graded this tour with an “A-“. The minus is because the food was not really very good nor tasty — with the exception of the last meal which was a delightful experience. But none of that is Eduardo’s fault. His guiding, listening and decorum were beyond reproach. He could many times describe where the target bird was, rather than just pointing and scaring it away. A true gentleman and very helpful when I needed help or clarification. It would be a pleasure to go again with him. He was able to find 26 lifers for me when I expected at the most 19. Now my world list total is 7466 and counting! He is trying to work something out for me in Peru, but that’s not until May – If we can come up with a feasible itinerary. Meanwhile, know that you’re welcome to use any or all of this letter to encourage others to join your tours with Eduardo. Stay well, keep birding. I plan to, too. Kay Goodhue
