Madagascar Lemurs, Rivers and Tsingy with Hilary Bradt
20 July - 2 August 2013
- Visit the wildlife rich Andasibe and see the iconic lemurs
- Explore the little visited and remarkably untouched Tsingy of Bemaraha National Park
- Try to spot a fosa in Kirindy Forest
- Embark upon a river cruise along Tsiribhina
Here’s what Hilary has to say about the trip:
"I’m thrilled to be returning to Madagascar in 2013 as Special Guest of Steppes Discovery. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been to the Great Red Island but it must be well over 30. It’s somewhere you never tire of; there is always something new to see, or old favourite sites to revisit."
Hilary Bradt is the founder of Bradt Travel Guides. She broadcasts and writes about the joys and perils of travelling in Madagascar and other developing countries.

Here’s what Philip Briggs has to say about the trip:
"Ethiopia's immense scenery, wealth of endemic wildlife and singular cultures mark it out as the most unique country in Africa, and it's exciting to be revisiting it on an itinerary that combines its most impressive historical site, the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, with excellent opportunities to observe the likes of Ethiopian wolf, gelada monkey and Walia ibex along with hundreds of bird species."
Philip Briggs has visited more than two dozen African countries. He first visited Ethiopia in 1994, to research the first edition of the Bradt guide, and has travelled there extensively since, accompanied by his wife, the travel photographer Ariadne Van Zandbergen.
