Madagascan DMC TAMàNA Tours has partnered with Ethiopian Airlines and marketing and representation consultancy, The Adventure Connection, to create a fam trip that explores the best of Madagascar.

The itinerary is available to the UK travel trade, with only eight spaces available for operators and agents.

Departing on June 3 and returning on June 12, the itinerary explores the iconic landscapes of the west, and marine life off the islands in northern Madagascar – making the most of Ethiopian Airlines’ schedule from London, as it flies into the capital, Antananarivo, and returns from Nosy Be.

  • Learning to cook authentic Malagasy dishes with a local chef in Antananarivo.
  • Experiencing the landscape of Parc National des Tsingy de Bemaraha.
  • Taking photographs of the iconic Allée des Baobabs at sunset.
  • Seeing the birds and wildlife while canoeing on the Manambolo River.
  • Taking an ocean safari in Nosy Be to see the marine life.

There is an option to extend the trip to experience more of Madagascar.
