Costa Rica Traverse

The Coast to Coast Team ran a first rate operation. Would I do it again? Yes! I would have turned around on the beach and set off to do the full traverse right there and then.

Madagascar Adventure

Madagascar is the world’s fourth largest island and about the size of France. Isolated from Africa millions of years ago it has evolved an incredibly rich ecology and landscape that is as bizarre as it is unique. Home to one of the richest ecosystems on earth, you will be in awe of its quirky lemurs and endemic varieties of Baobab trees. Madagascar is "home" to nearly one-quarter of all the flowering plants in Africa. It also boasts ninety percent of the known species of lemur and half the world's population of chameleons. Marvel at the diverse landscapes, from lush tropical rainforest to semi arid and jagged limestone pinnacles. The local people, who are descendants of seafarers from the Indian Ocean, are proudly distinct from the peoples of continental Africa and are unfailingly polite and hospitable. We explore the spectacular collection of the island’s national parks on this itinerary including the UNESCO World Heritage site of Tsingy de Bemaraha.

traveller reviews

My recent trip was really great. I enjoyed the whole experience and was very pleased with the overall composition of the itinerary and the organisation. Our main guide was excellent and made the whole trip very smooth. He was very good at getting everything organised as required as we went along, and was also very knowledgeable about all aspects of the flora and fauna and always prepared to explain it. A great variety of terrain and the food was good and the accommodation better than expected. I was also very impressed with the overall smooth organisation from booking until we finished.
