There are plenty of opportunities to photograph numerous chameleons and frogs, while in the arid sandstone area of Isalo National Park, troops of ring-tailed lemurs bound around the rocks and cliffs. Ifaty's spiny forest boasts some exceptional birdlife, unusual flora and chameleons.
Kirindy's dry-deciduous forest is the only location to spot endemic nocturnal species, most notably the fosa (Madagascar's largest carnivore), the giant jumping rat and Madame Berthe's mouse lemur, the world's smallest primate.
Throughout the tour, Chris will offer tuition and guidance on wildlife and landscape photography while out 'in the field', and there will be opportunities to discuss various photographic techniques. The small group size allows for some personalised tuition, ideal whether you are starting out in the world of wildlife photography, or looking to improve your skills.
