  • Go behind the scenes with super chef Mariette and watch her prepare your meal, a fusion of local fare and French culinary art in Haute Ville
  • Uncover all the wildlife and botanicals unique to the island of Madagascar with a super guide who can point out the best spots to photograph
  • Indulge in a private picnic while watching different lemur species frolic in the towering trees above
  • Sleep under the stars in a tree tent on a private island and be surrounded by unspoilt beaches just outside Saint Luce peninsula
  • Enjoy sumptuous meals prepared in French style using the freshest and finest Madagascar produce during your stay in all the camps
  • Witness the awesome spectacle of Humpback whales breaching, powering themselves high into the cobalt sky
