If you follow this blog for a while, you’ll know I travel quite a bit to many “off the beaten track” destinations. Also, you’ll probably know that Madagascar is one of my favourite places in the world and after going there in 2013, leading a group of photographers for 10 days, it’s time for another photography trip to this wonderful place.
I’ve teamed up with the great team at Country Holidays to put together an exciting trip to this lesser traveled part of Africa. We’ll explore the interesting capital of Antananarivo and the former hill station of Antsirabe, before boarding a boat on the Tsiribihina River, making our way towards the sea for 3 days, photographing the landscapes and the people who make a living along the river. We will then head towards the famous Baobab Avenue where we will photograph these imposing trees against spectacular sunsets and night skies (this photograph was taken at the Baobab Avenue on a clear evening). Also, if you ask any of the previous participants in this tour, you will find out that one of the highlights of the trip was the delicious food, which is all included on all days.
This trip is really one of those “once in a lifetime” experiences, although once you go there, you always want to go back. From a photography point of view, it’s one of the most interesting places I’ve photographed. If you want to have a look at the images I posted before they are all here.
For the complete details for this trip (including schedule, prices etc.) have a look on the Country Holidays website.
