Beach and Lemur Explorer • 10 Days

If you’ve seen the film ‘Madagascar’, then you’re probably well aware of the existence of many different species of lemurs on the island of Madagascar! And because we at JENMAN African Safaris realise that these unique little creatures are a popular highlight for travellers to the island, we’ve designed an 8-Day Madagascar Lemur and Beach Package. Between excursions to spot the island’s local lemur species and relaxing on the beach, you will be spoiled for choice as you make the most of your accommodation and the activities that it has to offer.

Four nights of the 8-Day Beach Package will be spent at the Vanilla Hotel – a perfectly situated accommodation on the island of Nosy Be. There you can spend days exploring nearby secluded islands, beautiful beaches and the azure waters that are home to diverse ocean wildlife. The second accommodation that you will stay in while on the Lemur and Beach Package is the Vakona Forest Lodge – situated in Madagascar Andasibe National Park. The park is renowned for being home to the island’s biggest lemurs. During the day, you can explore their habitat and see them in action. The final night of your Lemur and Beach Package will be spent in Madagascar’s capital city Antananarivo. Experience the city’s buzzing atmosphere that’s so different to the rest of the island.

Île Sainte-Marie Beach Package • 6 Days

If you’re a fan of Robinson Crusoe and losing track of time on an idyllic island, then the Madagascar Saint Marie Beach Package is just the travel package you’re looking for. Not only will you be able to spend your time relaxing on the tropical beaches of this African island, but you’ll also be able to really immerse yourself into the island’s atmosphere.

Ile Saint Marie offers the ideal destination for travellers who really want to relax, without the hustle and bustle of mainstream tourist destinations. It’s a small island near the main island of Madagascar and, despite its size, offers amazing beaches and a full range of activities to fill up the day. Live the life of Robinson Crusoe – although with a little bit of luxury and fun – and go scuba diving or snorkeling, read a good book on your favorited beach to try your hand at a spot of deep-sea fishing!
