Join Me in Madagascar Oct-Nov, 2023!
Hello all! I am extremely excited to announce plans to finally visit my number one destination: Madagascar! I have reserved Patrick, the same guide Jon Hall used during his trip in 2022. The first leg of my journey is at capacity, but I am looking for additional travel companions for the second leg in the North and/or the third leg in the South. These trips will be very mammal focused, but of course we can also spend a short time with non-mammals. Expect full days of both diurnal and nocturnal mammal watching (including a thermal imager).
Generally, it will look something like this:
2nd leg (The North): This itinerary is set to leave Tana by plane early morning on Oct 21st and return to Tana on Nov 1st. We will largely cover the sites Jon Hall did for his Northern Madagascar trip (Marojejy, Daraina, Andrafiamena, Amber Mountain, Ankarana, Ambanja, Nosy Be, & Andamoty) with the additions of Antsohihy, and Ankarafantsika plus an additional night at Amber Mountain to increase the chances for Falanouc. Other targets include Silky, Golden-crowned & Perrier’s Sifaka, Ring-tailed Mongoose and Aye-aye. If interested I can provide a full target list.
3rd leg (The South): This itinerary is shorter and will leave Tana on Nov 2nd and return to Tana on Nov 7th both by plane. Then we will drive between Itafy, Zombitse, Tsimanampetsotsa, Berenty and Andohahela. Top targets include Grandidier’s Mongoose, Ring-tailed Lemur, and Petter’s, Hubbard’s, and White-footed Sportive Lemurs.
Please email me at email@example.com if you’re interested in the exact itinerary and pricing.
Also, it’s fast approaching but for anyone interested, a spot has opened up on Royle Safari’s Javan Rhino tour for June 1st-10th for which I will be the tour leader.
