What you'll do

Madagascar is home to some of the Earth’s most unique flora and fauna—from chattering, wide-eyed lemurs leaping through the rainforest to the majestic baobab trees that dot the landscape. Cameras in hand, we’ll delve into the island nation’s distinctly dazzling ecosystems, training our eyes to see interesting angles and our ears to hear the haunting, shrill call of the world’s largest lemur. In the company of a world-renowned travel photographer and a local expert in Malagasy ecology and biology, we’ll paddle along a river in pirogue canoes, ascend to the top of a vast “stone forest,” and venture into the depths of the rainforest at night—all to catch a glimpse (and good snapshot) of these charismatic creatures and unique landscapes. Whether you’re a seasoned semi-professional or a budding amateur, you can expect to learn new photographic storytelling tips and techniques each day. While our focus will be photography, the true magic of the trip will come from outside of our cameras—the flash of a tail in the branches above, a long chat with a group of local vendors, or the stoic near-smile of a slowly passing chameleon. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Antananarivo are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
