    Madagascar is a third world country that is not fully geared up to tourism. Therefore be prepared to expect changes to the itinerary or accommodation right up the last minute. Due to weather conditions, (rain or cyclones) whole areas can be flooded or bridges may be destroyed. Aircraft may not fly; trains are not always on time – sometimes not at all. The standard of roads and accommodation is not the same as in Europe or other developed countries. Don’t forget: You’re on holidays. The tour operator is flexible in terms of distances and timings. If you need to do some extra miles, they will be happy to arrange this for you. If you think a bit less is fine, the support car is often very close at hand.

    Please bring a sense of adventure when travelling to Madagascar. It is a developing destination and you will be cycling through remote areas where hotels, infrastructure and travel services are often basic. Be prepared to go outside your usual comfort zone and you will be richly rewarded. Discovering the real Madagascar at close hand is what this challenge is all about.

Wir sind seit gestern am Meer. Vielen Dank noch einmal für die Organisation dieser wirklich ganz fantastischen Reise. Ich war ja anfangs ein bisschen skeptisch ob das so spannend ist hier. Aber du hattest nicht zu viel versprochen. Madagaskar ist überwältigend. Offen gesagt: Eine bessere Betreuung kann ich mir nicht vorstellen.

We have been at the sea since yesterday. Thank you again for organising this really fantastic trip. At first, I was a bit skeptical if that was so exciting here. But you did not promise too much. Madagascar is overwhelming. Frankly, I can not imagine better care.)
