Birding Tour Madagascar: The Remote North 2018



5 % discount for all 2018 Madagascar tours if booked before the end of June 2018
All domestic flights are included in the price.

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 2018.

What our clients say

Australia and Barry Davies: When I found out it was Barry Davies that was leading the trip, I was thrilled as I had been in contact with him years ago when I was with Jaeger Tours, at the recommendations of a number of my friends that had travelled with him, so we knew each other! He was extraordinary – knew his stuff in and out about OZ and its flora and fauna and was great with the participants. We did Cairns & Darwin then an extension to Perth & Tasmania. Not sure how you would pick a favourite place from that. Each region is different and of course getting to see different parts of the country is something that I would have thought one would want to do if doing OZ. I would have loved to have seen more butterflies, mammals and reptiles than we did, but maybe that requires different locations and more time in the field. We did however get Platypus and Echidna. Butterflies are pretty much restricted to the north east. Timing for birds is tough as there is so much movement amongst them depending upon food sources, but I would have said we did pretty well. While obviously we wanted to see all we could, it was not the end of the world if we missed anything, and a huge list was not our goal. We were there in the dry season, I would hate to think what it would be like in the wet season, as a number of places/routes would have been under water, especially in the Darwin region. Accommodations on the whole were very good – I loved the different lodgings, many of which we had to do our own breakfast, with kitchen facilities in the cabins. The country is huge, and with very few people, less than SA!, so some of the locations there was little choices, especially for a large group, but Barry did great in getting what he did. At each region we had to get a bus, there were 14 of us – these varied between great to OK, as the on the extension we had to have one with a trailer.
