My Favourite Countries

  • Madagascar

Charles moved to Isalo, where he began his training as a local park guide. After qualifying as an official independent guide, he focused on English speaking clients and since then, he has explored almost every region of Madagascar, leading several specialist groups for Steppes.

As charming as he is knowledgeable, he always maintains the best groups are the ones that ask the most questions.
