Fantastic! Guide very helpful and knowledgable. Activities full on with down time to rest at the end. A beautiful place and in the short I was there, I managed to see a range of landscapes and participate in a wide range of activities.”

The tour was just amazing. It was great to spend these days in Madagascar. I learned a lot about the nature, landscape, culture and the people who live there. Our guide, Armel, has a wide knowledge about Madagascar and all the animals and plants, which he shared with us. It was always very interesting to listen to his words and we were welcome to ask all our questions. Armel leaded the tour just perfectly. He showed us all sites of Madagascar and was very funny all the time. His short briefings every evening were very helpful.

The tour itself was a perfect mixture between activities and freetime. We hiked a lot, climbed on rocks and went to caves and we were able to spent the last two days just at the beach. It was the perfect finish for our tour. Everything was well organised and I would recommend this tour to everybody.”

Land of Lemurs
Meet Madagascar's unique wildlife

Madagascar has the highest bio diversity on the planet with an incredible 95% of the species unique to the island, including over 50 types of lemurs - the island's star attraction. The brilliant national parks spread out across the island offer ample opportunity to see this amazing wildlife from the mountainous Isalo National Park to the Special Reserve of Andasibe.

With an incredible bio-diversity, startling range of endemic species, miles of tropical coastline and swathes of pristine jungle and cloudforests, Madagascar has plenty of natural attractions and here are some of our favourites:

Indri lemur in Madagascar - On The Go Tours
Natural diversity

Andasibe-Mantadia National Park

Home of the sacred Indri, the largest lemurs on earth, whose mesmerising call can be heard periodically throughout the day, the Andasibe-Mantadia National Park is an extraordinarily diverse region and a big hit with guests to the country. In addition to the various species of lemur that dwell within the park, explorers may also get the chance to witness some fascinating reptiles such as geckos, chameleons and boas as well as over a hundred different types of bird.

Lemur research centre

Ranomafana National Park

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Ranomafana National Park boasts the most important field research centre in Madagascar, dedicated to the complete understanding of lemurs, several species of which reside within the park. If the rampant wildlife in the park isn’t enough to tickle your interest, the varying elevation of the park means that the landscape is as diverse as it is stunning as cloudforest runs down into turbulent white water surrounded by lowland vegetation.

Isalo National Park - Madagascar - On The Go Tours
Jurassic wonder

Isalo National Park

While this park has a number of beautiful animals worth seeing, the real attraction of this park is its fascinating Jurassic sandstone formations that have been shaped and eroded from years of rain and wind. Yet, that’s not all this park has to offer. The grounds are peppered with caverns, gorges and waterfalls, making the scenery of the park some of the most exhilarating in the entire country. With a year-round warm and dry climate, there is never a bad time to check out this national gem.

Antananarivo - Madagascar - On The Go Tours
Colourful capital

Antananarivo

This thriving and colourful capital city has centuries of intriguing history, complemented by the scattering of gorgeous colonial buildings that line its streets. Antananarivo, or Tana as it’s known locally, is home to a number of attractions, which make a visit to this city well worth the rather strenuous effort required to navigate its chaotic streets. These include the Zome Market, the Royal Hill of Ambohimanga and the Prime Minister’s Palace.

Ifaty - Madagascar - On The Go Tours
Beach bliss

Ifaty

With perfect golden sands that gently shift with the ebb and flow of the tide, which, in turn, sparkles in the endless sunshine, Ifaty is one of the premier destinations in the entire country for those seeking the ultimate Madagascan beach experience. The shore is often lined with narrow wooden fishing boats, giving the town an authentic feel without making it seem too industrial. The crystal clear water is also filled with dozens of different fish, making it perfect for snorkelling.
