Our Essential Madagascar Birding tours provide the budget conscious birder with a fantastic opportunity for observing the highlights of this magical island’s incredible birds and wildlife. On these tours we will visit three of Madagascar's core critical habitats; namely the deciduous woodlands of Ankarafantsika, the dry spiny forest around Ifaty, and the moist eastern rainforests of Analamazaotra and Mantadia, all of which hold an exceptional diversity of endemic birds and lemurs.

We stand excellent chances of finding all 5 of the island's endemic bird families, as well as up to 10 different lemur species, including the awesome Indri. Some of the expected highlights of this tour include Subdesert and White-breasted Mesites, Long-tailed and Pitta-like Ground Rollers, stunning Schlegel's and Velvet Asities, Blue Coua, Sickle-billed and Van Dam's Vangas, and the ubiquitous Cuckoo Roller.
