Madagascar, the large island in the Indian Ocean, lies about 600 kilometres off the African coast. Only a few flying hours separate it from the mainland of the black continent. And yet Madagascar is a completely different Africa with its unique natural wonders, its extreme biodiversity and its fascinating culture. The island has a lot to offer and has been the Mecca of ecotourism for animal, nature and photo enthusiastic travelers for years. As a Madagascar tour operator, we specialize in traveling to this fourth largest island in the world. We place the highest value on sustainable tourism, and on travel and photography in harmony with Madagascar’s nature and environment. We are involved in our own projects on the island in order to leave behind as positive a footprint as possible. It is particularly important for us to work together well and to treat the Malagasy population and our employees with respect – Tanalahorizon is a big family, not just a team.

Benefit from our experience


With over 24 years of travel experience, we ensure that your personal holiday in Madagascar will be an unforgettably beautiful and exciting experience. No matter if in a group, with friends or as a couple: We have the right thing for everyone and are happy to help you with the individual planning of your perfect Madagascar trip. Our team consists of experts in all areas that affect our trips: Photographers, biologists, veterinarians and very important: Our local Malagasy guides who know their country like the back of their hand. Many of our trips are planned as group trips, but can also be adapted to your wishes and requirements with fewer people. Our group trips in Madagascar are conducted with a maximum of 10 people, who are divided into several small groups in all national parks. Thus nothing stands in the way of the intensive nature experience also in a group. Our journeys on Madagascar are offered with both German and English tour guides. Fly once really there, where the pepper grows!

Travel at the right time

When planning, please always bear in mind that Madagascar has a distinct seasonality. Not all animal and plant species can be found in all seasons, or travel during the rainy season is not possible in all areas of the island. We will be happy to help you choose the right time and destination for your dream trip to Madagascar. Just take a look at our classic tours, photo tours and safaris, adventure and explorer tours!
