Rainbow Tours has released a series of new Madagascar itineraries including a group tour led by destination expert Daniel Austin, plus a new tailor-made trip focusing on birding. The operator has also announced a conservation initiative with the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust for any Madagascar bookings made this month and next.
The expert-led Madagascar Wildlife Discover Tour showcases the widest range of habitats, from Marojejy National park in the north-eastern rainforests to Anakao in the south-western ‘spiny desert’. The 18-day tour runs from October 27 – November 13, 2016 and costs 4,585 per person including flights; transport and guiding throughout; accommodation; and meals and excursions as outlined in the itinerary. The maximum group size for the tour is 12.
Meanwhile, following the popularity of Madagascar Wildlife Discovery Tours, the operator has introduced four departure dates for 2016. The 18-day tour is priced at £3,995 per person, with 2016 departures scheduled for September 3-21, September 17 – October 4, September 22 – October 9 and October 9 - 25.
The company has also redesigned its Birding & Wildlife Tailor-Made Tour, which caters to travellers keen to discover the country’s wide variety of endemic bird species. Accompanied by one of Madagascar’s top birding and wildlife specialist guides, the tour goes on the trail of rare species such as the Bernier’s teal, Madagascar pond heron, Madagascar white ibis, the Brown mesite and Yellow-browed oxylabes, as well as dozens of other species of wetland and rainforest birds.
Prices for the 19-day tour lead in at £4,990 per person, based on two adults travelling together and sharing a twin or double room. In support of the preservation of Madagascar’s wildlife and the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, the operator will also adopt a ring-tailed lemur for every Madagascar booking made with the operator this summer.
