As any Madagascar tour begins with the choice of means of travel, what is your initial choice:

  • Car or minibus for easy national roads, with family or friends,
  • 4WD on national roads as well as on tracks,
  • Plane for reaching the place of the tour more quickly (Tuléar, Fort-Dauphin, Diego-Suarez, Majunga, Morondava, Ile Sainte-Marie, …),
  • Or Quad for day trips, for example,
  • And even the zebu carts for authenticity in the trip, a meeting with the Malagasy farmers,
  • Or mountain biking for sports enthusiasts.
