Winds pick up between May and September, so we compensate for this by booking accommodation on the leeward side of the islands in pleasantly protected positions. It’s warm and not too humid, making it a pleasant climate for wildlife watching. You can see Aldabra giant tortoise, Seychelles black parrot, and a variety of curious plant species such as the jellyfish tree and the highly prized coco de mer.
From reefs, rainforests and red-ruffed lemurs to beaches, baobabs and bushy-tailed aye ayes, Madagascar has it all. The incredible fauna and flora is matched by landscapes of incredible diversity – trek from lush rainforests to rocky, desert moonscapes, absorbing a world of unusual and unique creatures, from lumbering, googly-eyed chameleons to giant jumping rats and lolloping lemurs. Biodiversity in Madagascar is extraordinary, with nearly 15,000 endemic plants. Balance adventure with leisurely comfort - miles of footprint-free sand with swaying palms beckon… spend wistful days lounging in a hammock with a good book as you soak up the scenery in languid style.
