An often overlooked masterpiece of mother nature is a gigantic island country filled with mysterious creatures found nowhere else in the world. It’s been on our travel club’s bucket list for years and we’re beyond excited to have crafted a truly one-of-a-kind journey throughout Madagascar! Famous for its isolation off the coast of Africa allowing evolution to showcase her miracles, Madagascar is home to countless endemic species found nowhere else in the world. The most well-known are the numerous species of lemurs who have enjoyed millions of years of evolution in this unique microbiome. Join us on our brand new adventure to Magical Madagascar. *As usual, we recommend getting your deposits in ASAP because our trips (especially new ones) tend to fill up fast.

Madagascar is the world’s fourth-largest island where you will “discover an extraordinary storehouse of natural and cultural riches. Separated from Africa and Asia at the time of the dinosaurs, Madagascar’s animal life has evolved in a startling myriad of forms, with endemic species found nowhere else on earth. – Rough Guides
The East: The green corridor of Madagascar (5 Days)
Eastern Madagascar is travel the way it used to be. There is a wildness here of primordial allure, from the misty mountains of Masoala, down the huge coastline with its pounding sea and overhanging palms, to the lush waterways of the Pangalanes Lakes. Travelers often feel a constant sense of coming upon undiscovered locales, including entire national parks….” -Lonely Planet
Highlights: Peyrieras Private Farm “Madagascar Exotic”, Fortified Palace of Ambohimanga, Antananarivo (the capital), Andasibe National Park
The West: Adventureland (8 Days)
“Madagascar’s western region is filled with adventurous possibilities and it’s from here that so many iconic Madagascar images originate. From the otherworldly limestone spikes and crippled spires of the Tsingy de Bemaraha to the stomping ground of the fossa at the Réserve Forestière de Kirindy. Throw in the Allée des Baobabs and so many opportunities to go out into the wilderness and you have a region that showcases all that’s memorable about this remarkable country. Your rewards are priceless traveling epics you’ll never forget.” – Lonely Planet
-Highlights: Night Nature Walks, The Grand & Petit Tsingys, Manambolo Gorge & River, Avenue of the Baobabs
Travel Club Update: COVID-19
PhotoFly Travel Club takes our current global pandemic extremely seriously. As such, a number of our 2020 and 2021 adventures have had to be cancelled & postponed like most in our travel industry. We want nothing more than all of our members to stay healthy & happy during these trying times. We hope everyone is playing their part by social distancing as much as possible. The more people who properly follow this crucial tactic in our country, and everyone around the world, the faster we will conquer and come out stronger & better prepared when this happens again.
As of today, we remain hopeful that travel will become feasible and safe again for most travelers early next year. In fact many countries, including most of Europe, have been on the decline for months now. It’s important to acknowledge that these are mainly countries that have enacted strict social distancing measures much sooner and in a more timely manner than the USA has been able to. Good news is most of the countries on our upcoming calendar fit this description!

Enhanced Procedures & Safety Measures
As we get ready to explore the world with you again soon, our travel club has begun to implement new guidelines and practices for the “Post-Covid World”. Some of them are listed below. Safety is #1 and the ability to experience a destination without limitations due to the pandemic is #2
b. Sanitizer available at all times/ Surface Cleanings done constantly
c. Social distancing practices as much as possible & no contact health/temperature checks
d. Small Groups Only = Lower Risk. Only time will tell and we’re following the situation very carefully. Our pledge is to share nothing but scientific evidence and advice given by the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO). We will base our decisions in the coming months solely on these two sources.
We know this is going to be a difficult time for all of us, in a myriad of ways. PhotoFly Travel Club is committed to building amazing experiences for years to come. We will get through this together and come out on the other side with even more amazing trips.
We wish everyone nothing but the best navigating this crisis. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all to remain healthy and persevere until we overcome.
Much love and gratitude to all of our members,
Steve, Andrew, Catalin, Michelle, Raya, & the rest of our PhotoFly Team!
