I was able to see so many things, ranging from reptiles, to amphibians, to birds, to mammals (the different lemurs were amazing), to insects and different plants, including the baobab trees! Everything was wonderful! Our guides assisted me in seeing the different creatures, and when I wanted help, to photograph them. Our accommodations were very nice and comfortable. We visited both the eastern rainforests and the arid south/southwestern part of the country. It was a nice study in contrasts.

The universal fantasy of biologists all the world over is to witness the sheer brilliance of Madagascar's biodiversity. I can think of none other than Tropical Herping to take you on this adventure of a lifetime. Not only will they find you invisible and infinitesimal creatures, they will give you an unforgettably joyful experience and you will come home with a portfolio of fantastic images.

A photo tour with Tropical Herping is actually as unique as the fauna in Madagascar is. Going on photo safari with the TH team is much more than “taking pictures” of animals. It is about learning techniques of how to truly reflect the beauty and the characteristics of the animal in the frame of a photograph.
