Know Before You Go

For most activities, a moderate level of exertion is required. Our itinerary includes walks and nature hikes, sometimes over uneven terrain, including some hilly areas. Madagascar’s climate varies noticeably from north to south, east to west, and from coastal to highland regions. As we travel through the island, expect it to be warm, with temperatures ranging from the 70sºF to low 80sºF during the day and dipping into the 60sºF in the early mornings and evenings. Slightly cooler temperatures are likely at higher elevations, including Antananarivo. Berenty, in the southeast, is drier than the rest of the island and can be very hot, with temperatures during the day reaching into the 90sºF.
