Our Madagascar North Adventure vacation offers you a fantastic nature-filled Madagascar vacation option. Explore the Northern part of Madagascar, including national parks with lemurs, reserves with endemic animals and beaches with perfect sand, with Jenman Island Safaris.

See what the world’s biggest bay is about during your Madagascar North adventure vacation taking you to the extreme northern tip of the island – Diego Suarez - before continuing your adventure in one of Madagascar’s most diverse rainforests – Montagne d’Ambre. Your thrilling Madagascar vacation might include exciting sightings of night lemurs and the world’s smallest chameleons. You can also spend some of your time exploring hidden waterfalls and crater lakes!

A highlight that shouldn’t be missed on your Madagascar vacation is the Ankarana Reserve, which you will be visiting when booking this package – erosion has created a spiky stone forest landscape with underground riverbeds and caves which help to protect the region from human intrusion. Enjoy your last days of the tour on the picture-postcard-perfect sandy beaches and lemur reserves in and around Nosy Be – the big island! If you want a little something of everything – then this is the perfect Madagascar vacation for you… the Madagascar North Adventure!
