Reviews & Testimonials: Madagascar

We're always keen to hear feedback from our clients about their holidays. Here's a selection of some of the lovely things clients have said about Madagascar:

Princess Bora - really wonderful hotel, amazingly friendly and attentive staff, great excursion options and really comfortable yet relaxed accommodation.

The boat trip down the Pangalanes Canal was incredible, one of the many and wildly different highlights of the trip.

Bush House - stunning location!

Lokanga Boutique Hotel - was lovely, an amazing location, incredible views and a beautiful room.

Tsarabanjina - was the most comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable experience. They really have nailed it with the aura and atmosphere of the place, so relaxed yet still luxurious. Our bungalow was perfect, the sea dreamily turquoise and warm, and it was the most brilliant way to finish our time in Madagascar.

I would recommend Madagascar to anyone who cares to listen. Thank you guys for sorting out such an amazing trip, it really was everything that I hoped it would be.

Many thanks for your kind welcome back, and I'm delighted to be able to say we all had a truly fabulous time, managing to see such an amazing variety of sights and being increasingly cosseted in unaccustomed luxury. We all benefitted from having the full three weeks and have returned thoroughly relaxed by a much needed holiday.

The itinerary worked out really well overal. Every one of our party was full of praises for the way everything had been organised, and Original Travel's reputation has been well and truly boosted, so I'm very pleased to pass on sincere thanks to you from all of us.

Madagascar was brilliant, and I don't think that we could have enjoyed it more.

Where do I start? Perhaps the appropriate place is the guides that we had. Not only were they helpful and informative, but they were nice lads whose company we really enjoyed.

Vakona Lodge was a good place to start. In fact the itinerary was excellent - well done you. OK, it was a bit damp in the rooms, but it was in the middle of a rainforest, so that has to be expected. The food was good too.

We saw plenty of lemurs in the forest, which was great.

Up to Forest Lodge in Joffreville, the food was nice at the, and it was pretty relaxing. We had a great time in the Amber mountains looking for chameleons the size of a toe nail clipping - and finding them!

But the star of the holiday was the diving off Tsarabanjina. I think we must have done 10 dives or so, and were always out on our own - no other dive schools within 50 nautical miles. Great coral gardens, and so many fish. We didn't see the sharks that I think we would have seen in Mozambique, but really loved it. The hotel was great too - good food, superb service, and lovely rooms. A good recommendation - thank you very much.

So, a great success. Very many thanks to all at Original Travel!
