Join award-winning photographer Nick Garbutt to track, watch and photograph the extraordinary wildlife and habitats of Madagascar – a country like no other.

As well as tracking the island's most famous inhabitants - the charming and diverse lemurs - you will encounter an array of wildlife, all accessible and easy to see on day and night walks through spectacular forests.  There are countless opportunities to see and photograph species such as the endangered golden-crowned sifaka, the iconic fosa, beautiful diademed sifaka, secretive helmet vanga, and - if lucky - the elusive aye-aye.

Diverse habitats and fascinating cultures will add to the fabulous photographic opportunities, and once you've explored the atmospheric and varied landscapes you can relax at unique and charming accommodation. Daily sessions with Nick will enable you to pose questions you've always wanted to ask in situ and hone your photography talents.
