This is an experience that everyone can enjoy. Our route is almost completely paved and most nights are spent in comfortable hotels. We have thrown in plenty of rest days so that you can get the most of out your time on this amazing island. Madagascar, with its stunning geography and biological mega-diversity is the perfect place for another incredible TDA Global Cycling expedition.

Geographically isolated from the rest of the world for over 80 million years, Madagascar is certainly a world unto itself. Flora and fauna have developed independently from the rest of the planet. Animals and plants that have become extinct elsewhere live on here, the world’s 4th largest island. Even more striking is the degree of endemism (species that occur nowhere else): tenrecs, fossa, upside-down trees, giraffe-necked weevils, 33 species of lemur. This unique development has led to the island being known as the ‘8th Continent’.

The island was one of the last places on the planet to be colonized and this has resulted in a distinctive Malagasy culture. Cyclists may be given the opportunity to witness the ‘Turning the Bones” – a ceremony where villagers disinter and re-enshroud the bodies of dead relatives. At the very least they will be able to enjoy the island’s cuisine – a potent mixture of local/French/Creole/Indonesian & Indian influences – and follow that off with some flavoured rum, the island’s signature cocktail.
