The Lemur is a clade of strepsirrhine primates endemic to the island of Madagascar. The actually word "lemur" derives from the word lemures (ghosts or spirits) from Roman mythology, and was first used to describe the nocturnal habits and slow pace of certain creatures, which applied perfectly to the habitual primates of Madagascar. Shortly after humans arrived on the island of Madagascar some 2,000 years ago, there were some lemurs as large as a gorilla. Today, there are nearly 100 species of lemurs, and most of those species have been discovered or promoted to full species status since the 90's.

Day 2: Antananarivo - Anjajavy

Enjoy a private vehicle transfer to/from the Antananarivo International Airport.

Sit back during this short flight departing Antananarivo and arriving in Anjajavy.  The approximate travel time is 1 hour and 30 minutes. Guests must verify their weight at time of booking. Luggage restriction applicable to this flight: 20kg (44lb) per person, for checked luggage, the bag must not exceed 158cm (62 inches) in total.  You can have one piece for your carry-on, weighing maximum 6kg (13lb), it must not exceed 115cm (45 inches).

Optional (included in your stay):

At night, the forest comes alive with an entirely new set of animals, completely hidden from site during the day. Watch as nocturnal species such as mouse lemurs, sportive lemurs, dwarf lemurs, chameleons and various birds, all use the cloak of night to feed and traverse the Anjajavy Forest. Enjoy this original experience of discovering the forest and its moonlit enchantments.

All walks are along well-marked paths, and various options do not require a guide. For those wishing guide accompaniment, arrangements can be made to have a guide accompany you on your walk.

Accommodation: Anjajavy Hotel

Nestled in a nature reserve of 550 hectares,  this Relais & Châteaux property Anjajavy Hotel consists of a beautiful ensemble of rosewood villas scattered over a long fine sandy beach on the Mozambique Channel.

Day 3: Anjajavy

Optional (included in your stay):

Discover the underground world of stalagmites and stalactites in the Sakalava Cave, locally known as la grotte des Sakalava. Formed over millennia, these rock formations mutate and grow, as tiny bits of minerals are deposited by running water along the cave ceiling and floor. Tiny fruit bats (Emballonura Tiavato) and leaf nose bats (Hipposideros Comersoni) find refuge in these caves, and can be seen as you explore the caverns. A forest guide will accompany you on your excursion, and flashlights will be available to provide additional lighting in the cave.

Note: There is no access to the cave on rainy days.

Day 4: Anjajavy

Optional (Included in your stay):

Today you can set out along the Giant's Walk and Baobab Path (Balade du Geant et Chemin des Baobabs) as you venture the trail of these sacred trees to the shining star of this area: a giant 400-year-old baobab with its imposing stance over the other nearby trees. Emblems of Madagascar, the baobabs will surprise you by their great height and majesty. Their ability to slide their roots into the tsingys along the seaside and to grow and anchor their huge bodies is quite fascinating. Some of these trees are sacred for the population and receive offerings; heads of zebu, honey and various baubles. To bring you good luck, it is tradition that you should wear the traditional sarong, go round them anti-clockwise and never point a finger at them. Keep your eyes and your cameras ready along your walk, as you're likely to come across lemurs, lizards and some species of birds which are endemic to this area.

All walks offered at the hotel are along well-marked paths, and some require no guide, though you're welcome to make arrangements for one to accompany you if you would prefer.

Anjajavy Hotel holds a long and strong partnership with the non-profit organization "Ecoles du Monde", dedicated to improving Madagascar's health care and education. Opposite of the marina, Ambodro Ampasy is one of those villages which boasts a school established by Ecoles du Monde, and on a guided excursion, you'll get to visit this unique village (accessible only by boat or kayak), to meet the villagers, and visit the school. This is a very memorable, immersive experience, as you interact directly with the locals.

  • Mary R. — July 20, 2016 — Africa

    Going with Kensington Tours was a great decision. The transfers between resorts was handled very professionally and extremely smooth. I will plan my next trip to South Africa with Kensington. Money well spent!

  • Julie C. — July 20, 2016 — Africa

    I cannot stress enough how perfectly everybody and everything came together to provide us with a world class vacation!! Start to finish, so much more than we expected or anticipated!! We will definitely be contacting again to book another trip!

  • Susan B. — July 15, 2016 — Africa

    The Elewana was wonderful - awesome staff & guides, gorgeous setting! All flights and drives were on time & we had no problems at all.

  • Ulises C. — July 15, 2016 — Africa

    Our Africa trip was epic! The real test of such an eight country adventure is the logistics at transfer points. FLAWLESS. Thank you to Andrew Drummond and Kensington for guiding us.

  • Jose M. — July 15, 2016 — Africa

    Great service from the planning to the selection of options. Roudayna Hanna helped us to design one of the best trips of our life. The tour guides, Tracy in Cape Town and Mathias in Namibia, were excellent and customer-oriented.

  • Cathy C. — July 15, 2016 — Africa

    Special thanks to Augustine, our guide. He was beyond our expectations. I recommend that Kensington provides guides with a balloon ride over the Serengeti as a bonus. Thank you to everyone involved in my safari trip; I felt safe and well cared for and will recommend KT to all my friends and family.

  • Douglas H. — July 15, 2016 — Africa

    Excellent / easy family trip on very short notice. The team was awesome.

  • Philip M. — July 15, 2016 — Africa

    Our guide and driver made this a fantastic trip. We highly recommend them.

  • Alicia H. — June 30, 2016 — Africa

    Riad Salam! I cannot say enough good things about our accommodation in Fes! We loved our room with its stunning Moroccan tile work and brass chandeliers and we marveled at the gorgeous interior courtyard while enjoying breakfast each morning and relaxing by the pool each evening. Our guide in Fes, Omar, was magnificent. He knew everyone and negotiated zealously for us with each vendor. Our cooking class at Maison Bleu with Chef Zohar was very fun! We loved following Zohor around the souks, collecting ingredients and she was an excellent teacher in the kitchen. In Marrakech, we had the best time at Kasbah du Toubkal. Our guide was incredibly patient and let us lounge in the mountain sun and air for hours!

  • Patrick P. — June 30, 2016 — Africa

    Charlie, our guide, was absolutely the best! We had my wife's mom (74) and dad (75) along, and he helped them thru the rain forest and every obstacle that we encountered. Barry, our guide in the rain forest, spotted so many lemurs and chameleons, and he also helped Charlie with mom and dad. Both were a wealth of information about the animals and the island. We all really enjoyed Lemur Island, where the lemurs would hop on your shoulders. I was amazed how poor the people of Madagascar were, and how poor the roads were; but Charlie navigated thru Tana and the road to the rain forest like a pro. The hotel and lodge we stayed at were first rate, and the service from the staff was excellent! Thanks to all connected to Kensington Tours for putting together such a wonderful trip!
