A logistics staff handles equipment, food and all these little things that are appreciated.

Into the garage, a group of mechanics, sheet metal workers and electricians knowledgeable, to prepare the 4×4 vehicles and minibuses that crisscross Madagascar quietly.

And also, a rigorous accounting department for the smooth running of the company.

Les Guides, drivers, assistants … more than twenty people accompanying you to help you to understand, explore and enjoy Madagascar.

It is for them – and for you – that everything is implemented in the office and garage so that you can experience a unique journey with confidence!


Malagasy Tours ; an ethics and values

The main advantage of Malagasy Tours, It is these men and women who have worked together since 1993 to prepare your trip to accompany you on roads and trails, to share evenings around the campfire to discuss of travel and share their passion for the country: Madagascar.

The sharing

A permanent contact with the population. Trying as much as possible to be close to people and events to understand them better. Exchanges between different cultures are always for the actors, privileged moments and intense and lasting memories.

The nature

It is present everywhere in Madagascar. We go to its contact in the parks and reserves, we approach the animals and we learn about the plants, flowers so particular in this region of the world.
Very concerned about ecology, conservation, biodiversity, we help from our best different projects in this direction.

The adventure

We will take you on a journey that will be done of discoveries, meetings and experiences. Adventure is not necessarily synonymous with unexpected or improvisation, is more a state of mind, a concept, an approach of the Travel with a big T.


By this term somewhat “overused” in recent years, we mean a certain quality of tourism as well say a way to travel. Ecotourism is a responsible tourism, conscious of its role in the country toward the human and natural environment.
The ecotourist is a tourist attentive, open, interested, and traveling today without ignoring tomorrow.

ATR – Malagasy Tours has the certification “Acting for Responsible Tourism”

This certification Acting for Responsible Tourism is based on a framework which aims to bring together operators wishing to work towards a more responsible tourism and sharing common values in the exercise of their professional practices based on respect, solidarity and quality.
