Showcasing two of the world’s most exciting wildlife destinations, this 11-day tour delivers dazzling biodiversity. It opens with five nights in Madagascar – on a tropical island surrounded by a coral reef – before flying you to two different locations in the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, one of Africa’s most rewarding big game destinations.

Madagascar is a large but relatively unexplored island in the Indian Ocean off the eastern coast of Africa. Half the size of South Africa and the fourth biggest island in the world, it rivals the Galapagos for sheer diversity of endemic species, with up to 90 percent of the fauna and flora found here thought to be unique to the island. It is most famous for its lemurs – of which there are a hundred different species – as well as six species of baobab trees found nowhere else in the world. Only about 30 000 people visit its 40 national parks every year, making it a rare destination with very low visitor numbers and extremely high biodiversity.

You will be heading from Diego Suarez to Nosy Ankao island via a helicopter transfer. Here you can snorkel straight off the beach because it is a protected marine area and the scuba diving is also excellent. There are opportunities for turtle, whale and dolphin watching as well as helicopter safaris to the mainland’s forest reserves for lemur watching. Your beachfront accommodation at Miavana Island Sanctuary takes the form of multi-bedroom villas, each complete with a well-stocked kitchenette, private swimming pool, large indoor and outdoor living spaces, and a private butler service. The resort’s spa offers a wide range of treatments and you enjoy complimentary use of bicycles and an electric buggy.

Fully recharged and refreshed, you now fly to Zambia and the South Luangwa where you have five nights at the remote and luxurious Time + Tide Chinzombo. Set on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River, Chinzombo is well-placed for epic game viewing, especially during the long June-to-October dry peak season when animals gather at the river in considerable numbers. Game drives take you in search of wildlife and you can also explore on foot with your experienced guide, offering a unique aspect to your safari experience. Your accommodation is in the form of a vacation villa in one of the most luxurious lodges in the whole country.

Day to day

The tour opens in Diego Suarez on the far northern tip of Madagascar and a helicopter transfer to Nosy Ankao, which lies off the north-eastern coast. Part of a 15000-hectare protected marine area, the island is home to Miavana Island Sanctuary, your private home for the next five nights. Your generously proportioned villa lies just a few steps away from the beach and comes complete with its own pool and kitchenette, although of course all meals are provided as well as most drinks. Also included are various shared activities & cultural tours, boat cruises, snorkelling trips, bicycle usage and forest walks & and you have the opportunity to go lemur watching on the mainland, care of a helicopter safari. There is limited Wi-Fi and phone coverage at the resort, meaning you can truly switch off and have a ‘digital detox’ in this stimulating part of the world.

A trip back to the mainland via helicopter is highly recommended as you may be able to visit the remarkable Montagne Ambre National Park. Named ‘Amber Mountain’ because of the red laterite soil and limestone pinnacles, it has incredible small game watching that includes the world’s second smallest chameleon, seven species of lemur and 77 recorded species of birds. If you are very lucky, you might see the ring-tailed mongoose and the fosa, Madagascar’s only known predator.

The nearby town of Ambanja is known for its spice and chocolate plantations, and the air is permeated with the scents of vanilla, coffee, cloves, ylang-ylang and cacao.
