    The coolest time to travel anywhere in Madagascar is during the dry cool season from May to October.

    February – Cyclones can occur.
    April / May / June – heavy downpours with sunny intervals – lemurs and reptiles are active and readily seen.
    July and August are cool and dry and perfect for a Madagascar Holiday. The whales arrive on Ile Ste Marie in July and remain until the end of August.
    September, October and November is fine and warm with the jacarandas in flower and many lemurs have their young during this time.
    December is hot with lemurs and reptiles active and wildlife viewing is good.

  • SAFARI EXTENSIONS

    After your Madagascar Island hopping, a few days on a Kenya Safari would be the ideal extension to view the Wildebeest Migration in Kenya’s Masai Mara. June to October are the best months to view this amazing spectacle and with Madagascar being in close proximity to Kenya, its just a hop across.
