COVID Protocols

Embark on a Madagascar wildlife tour with Naturalist Journeys to discover an island so isolated from the rest of the world, that every land mammal is endemic and nearly half the birds are, too — wow! Search for endearing lemurs, bizarre chameleons, otherworldly flora, and so much more. Madagascar is one of the world’s greatest destinations for birdwatchers and naturalists, alike; a Madagascar birding and wildlife tour is truly an experience of a lifetime.

Our Madagascar nature tours focus on birding, general wildlife, and natural history. We also offer other exciting African wildlife tours and African wildlife safaris.

Guided Group Tours

Group travel is rewarding and fun! With more eyes you see more species. Travel Planners of Naturalist Journeys and Caligo Ventures have been creating memorable journeys for 40+ years. We offer you small-group birding and nature tours, limited to just 8-10 persons led by expert guides. Learn and explore with like-minded people, enjoy local food and culture, and immerse yourself in birding and nature.

Conservation Corner

We value conservation – it is at the heart of our work. All Naturalist Journeys’ tours support local conservation projects. Browse the links below to learn more about positive local work to save and conserve the wildlife and landscapes we visit.

Asity Madagascar
Asity Madagascar works with local communities to preserve, manage, and protect key ecosystems as habitat for threatened and endangered species of birds and wildlife.

Deforestation is one of the biggest threats birds and mammals of Madagascar face. Rosewood and ebony are two key tree species targeted by illegal logging operations, which are driven by international demand, extreme poverty in country, and government corruption. The country is currently under an international embargo by the Standing Committee of Convention on International Trade and Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

Illegal Wildlife Trade
The illicit wildlife trade particularly impacts lemurs, chameleons, snakes, lizards, tortoises, and other charismatic species in Madagascar. TRAFFIC works to stem the trade.
