Madagascar Family Holidays

Explore this diverse, exciting and adventure-packed island as a family, combining quirky endemic wildlife with unspoilt tropical beaches. In the forests of Andasibe, spot lemurs and chameleons as you explore on foot, before searching for haunted tombs in the mangroves of remote southern Madagascar. Finish on the beach, where you can snorkel, swim, kayak and sail, surrounded by an array of colourful marine life.

Ideas for a Family Holiday in Madagascar

  • Snorkel over historical shipwrecks off the coast of Ile St Marie
  • Search for pirate graves and elusive aye-ayes, before making bows and arrows and going on a bug-hunt on a Madagascar family adventure
  • Charter a skippered yacht and island-hop along Madagascar’s north-western coast
  • Get up close to lemurs on a forest walk through one of the many national parks that dot the country
  • Set out on a night walk, spotting chameleons, tenrecs and other nocturnal animals by torchlight

Advice from Our Family Experts

“Madagascar is wonderful for families because there is almost nothing poisonous or dangerous – kids can wander freely without too much concern. And all the activities mean that at the end of the day, they are shattered, leaving parents with some alone time to enjoy a glass of wine.”
