Essence of Madagascar DMC , is a well known dmc with offices in Antanarivo and also in Nosy be . We have explored every corner of the island to concoct the best trips for our partners. We keep on discovering the best areas and places so that our offer of trips will be the most complete to offer a unique incentive program for your clients.

Some 80 million years ago Madagascar decided to break away from Africa. It has been going its own way ever since and the result is a destination quite unlike anywhere else on the planet… The first time you come face-to-face with a ring-tailed lemur you will be bewitched. Is it a strange prehistoric cat, a tree-living dog or a primitive monkey? Look into its eyes and you may understand why the name lemur is derived from the Latin for ‘spirits of the dead’.

There are 23 different species of lemur on Madagascar, and they are not alone. There are 70 different species of bird – the island is a twitcher’s paradise – not to mention two thirds of the world’s species of chameleon and over 150,000 endemic species of flora.

If you ask Essence of Madagascar to create you a tailor-made Incentive or holiday trip to Madagascar you can expect to explore wildlife reserves with fossilised forests. Expect Jurassic landscapes. Expect fantastical rock formations. Expect to find an ancient culture that includes sculpted totems and richly decorated tombs devoted to the Malagasy ‘Cult of Ancestors’.

On Madagascar, expect to step outside the world of luxury holiday hotels, and into the unexpected. But visiting Madagascar also implies meeting its people, understanding its culture and tradition....It’s even the spirit of Madagascar to make your travel a high success for your clients.
