Madagascar: Evolution Gone Wild

We are thrilled to be returning to Madagascar! This large island is remarkable in so many ways. Since separating from the east coast of Africa more than 60 million years ago, its animal and plant life has followed an independent course of evolution, allowing an array of unique and frankly weird life forms to develop here.

We’ll visit some of the best wildlife reserves in the country in search of the many species of lemur, those unusual primates found only in Madagascar. In daylight, we should observe a variety including Brown Lemur, Black-and-white Ruffed Lemur, Ring-tailed Lemur, Verreaux’s Sifaka, and the largest of all – the magical Indri. We’ll also look for some of the dwarf and mouse lemurs at night and for other unusual mammals. Over a third of the bird species found here are endemic, including such uncanny species as the Sickle-billed Vanga, Long-tailed Ground-Roller, and stunning Blue Coua. We’ll watch for wonderful chameleons, geckos, and skinks as well as frogs, some of which flaunt their gaudy colours in broad daylight. Many plants too will entertain us with their bizarre forms!

On our past tours we’ve managed to see some 17 species of lemur, a large percentage of the endemic birds, many of the chameleons, and much more. If observing unusual animals and plants is something you might enjoy, then you’ll want to join us on this special, small group departure.

This tour may be conveniently paired with our “Best of the Cape” tour; please ask about our special pricing for joining these two tours.
