Family Madagascar

If your children love the movie Madagascar, they will REALLY love a Madagascar family holiday. This truly original African island destination is home to the perfect family-friendly combination of beaches, beasties, baobab trees and bizarre landscapes to explore, and our Africa experts can tailor-make the perfect trip to keep your diminutive David Attenboroughs on tenterhooks throughout

Our portfolio of additional services, such as fast track check-in and security at the airport, and lounge access (even if you're flying economy) are supplemented by exclusive Sharky & George fun packs for younger children that are ideal for keeping them interested on long flights and transfers with games and quizzes so they learn about the destination as they go.

So what are the big attractions on any Madagascar family holidays? First, the wacky wildlife that puts the 'mad' in Madagascar, including first and foremost the more than one hundred species of lemurs, which are - along with 90% of species - endemic to the island. The children will love ticking off the varieties as they travel around the island, especially when they spot ring-tailed lemurs like King Julien XIII, one of the funniest characters from the Madagascar movies, and Verreaux's Sifaka lemurs renowned for their funky 'dancing'. The colour-shifting chameleons will be another hit.

Next up are the weird and wonderful landscapes that play host to the island's wildlife and which are every bit as extraordinary. The children will be wowed by the enormous baobab trees - known locally as 'upside down trees' because they seem to be oddly inverted - and the tsingy landscape of razor-sharp rocks that look like rows of serrated teeth in places like Bemaraha National Park. Best of all, though, are the powder soft sandy beaches that encircle Madagascar and its satellite island idylls. We will always try to factor in some time on the beach at the end of the trip for you and the children to swim and snorkel in some of the clearest water anywhere in the world.
