How to choose his trekking trip ?
The trekking that we offer in Madagascar doesn’t represent in any way a sporting feat. However, it is important to choose well your trip who is perfectly adapted to your expectation and your physical and mental abilities.
Apart from the difficulties related to hiking activity, you must take into account the climate and seasonal factors (hot, cold, rain) and the remoteness notion. In Madagascar, the altitude notion doesn’t exist because no summit is located above 2800m above sea level.
