Madagascar Comprehensive Birding and Wildlife: Mega Birding Endemics, Lemurs, Chameleons and More

Our African partner has run more than 50 tours over the past 10 years to the world’s fourth-largest island. These three-week tours are one of the very few Madagascar tours ever to crack the magical 200 species barrier.

More Details About this Trip:

Of the two hundred species regularly recorded on the island, no fewer than one hundred and forty are endemic or near-endemic. This includes five entire families of birds endemic to the island: the ground-rollers, cuckoo-roller, mesites, Madagascar warblers, and vangas

The wonder of Madagascar extends well beyond its avifauna. Virtually every plant and animal on the island is endemic. Sadly most are threatened by continued deforestation, making Madagascar one of those “must-visit-soon” destinations. Besides the birds, we experience up to 27 lemur species (including the world-famous dancing sifakas) and other mammals from civets to strange tenrecs.
