About the trip

Each Madagascar trip stands with a successful logistics.

As a developing country, Madagascar has all the typical phenomena that make a trip more difficult than in other parts of the world.

This includes not only the often very bad roads and tracks, which on top of that in some areas change their course from year to year.

Signage and appropriate assistance for travelers is also almost always sought in vain.

Driving yourself is not as easy as in other African countries.

There are always people interested in Madagascar who absolutely want to rent a car to drive themselves.

Their experiences in countries like Namibia, South Africa or elsewhere lead them to the insane view that one can also reach the destination in Madagascar well as a self-driver.

Since in most cases a four-wheel drive car is required and these people have a fair command of the often not easy operation of such vehicles, the fallacy that an individual trip with a rental car is a tempting alternative is obvious



The travel days in detail

It is not for nothing that hardly anyone in Madagascar rents a car without a driver.

In addition, there are many roadside checks by uniformed people who often just want to "cash in" because something is allegedly wrong with the vehicle documents.

This is annoying and costs time and money if you do not know exactly!
And finally, you must always expect a breakdown or simply impassable routes.

Without a driver who orders help and spare parts via his cell phone, you're practically stuck!

The costs for the driver are extremely moderate and hardly make a difference in the overall price - they are included in the rental price anyway.

We employ only reliable and competent drivers who know the country and its people and, on top of that, are fluent in at least one relevant foreign language spoken by the guests.

A German speaking tour guide can join the trip for an extra charge.

The technical condition of our vehicles is a point that is particularly close to our hearts.
Comfort and safety are indispensable components of a successful trip.

Therefore, our vehicles are intensively maintained and cared for - for this, our drivers may not wash the cars every day, as do the drivers of the countless rust buckets that are on the road in the country and bring the travelers more poorly than not to their destination (or not).

We strongly advise renting a car including driver for several reasons!

While the driver can assist with hotel reservations and general logistics, it is not a tour guide who handles the complete planning and logistics of a trip.
For one thing, a driver's local and language skills are virtually irreplaceable.

Especially in remote regions, you can get lost very quickly and get into serious trouble.

No GPS will help - especially since there are no exact, detailed maps!
On the other hand, it is the rule that the roads are also trodden by herds of cattle.

In the localities or even outside, people, fowl, dogs and other inhabitants of the red island often appear in the lane.

The risk of an accident is incomparably higher than in Europe!
While it is almost normal to drive a chicken to its death or a dog to be struck on the way, you don't even stop for that.

Accidents involving people are more problematic: liability insurance in our sense does not exist.

As a white tourist, you quickly find yourself in enormous trouble in such a case.

This may mean imprisonment and immense costs!

Documents and evidence to be submitted

A document confirming that you are of legal age.
A proof of residence of less than three months (certificate of residence, invoice, ...).
A driver's license if you rent a car without a driver.
A proof of identity (passport) and that of the additional drivers.
The payment slip for the deposit of 100% of the rental price.

However, as far as the deposit and the required documents are concerned, we recommend that you send them to us by e-mail after you have made your reservation.

This way we will be able to validate and confirm them quickly.

This is also a security reason to avoid identity theft when you pick up the car.

Appeal for donations



After 10 months of total inactivity, self-employed people in the tourism industry in Madagascar are completely without income. There is no opening of the borders in sight in Madagascar and we are at the beginning of the rainy season, which is the low season, even in normal times. I have started a fundraiser for the guides and drivers I know well. From this money we will buy rice and other essentials and distribute them regularly, if possible, until the resumption of travel activities in April 2021 at the earliest. My special thanks to those who have already donated. I will start buying rice tomorrow and will begin distributing it this week.
