We are often asked whether there is any advantage travelling with a small group, versus travelling by yourselves. For Madagascar, travelling alone can be tricky in many ways. Language can be a problem, especially if you haven't a good grasp of French. Domestic travel by road can be time consuming and if just fro one or two people, quite expensive, as you will probably need x 4x4 (4WD) vehicle for many areas of the island, and they are costly to hire. Self drive is even more problematic.
We can organise travel for one or more people without joining a group. We always recommend that we organise most of the tour in advance to ensure guaranteed transport and accommodation (it is not unheard of that foreigners who have booked on a website arrive and find absolutely record of their booking - whether they have paid in advance or not). Using a tour operator who has decades of experience makes sure that your tour will go smoothly.
Our group tours are always accompanied by experienced English speaking professional guides. We select them not only on their many years of experience, but because of their specialist knowledge (particularly for natural history), They add incredible value to your experience. These guides are also available for individual travellers, as well as for small groups, they add a small cost to your tour, but add soo much !!!
