Madagascar

About the event

Your itinerary unfolds in Antananarivo where you’ll delve into Madagascar's rich textile heritage at

a Lamba Mena workshop. You’ll discover the intricate art of weaving with silk spun exclusively by

endemic silkworms and spiders. You’ll jet to Toliara where evening greets you with a performance

at a bustling performing arts school. You’ll venture into a 500-hectare mangrove forest, with a

naturopath who’ll unveil the secrets of over 50 endemic healing plants and their applications.

You’ll immerse yourself in the cultural tapestry of the south at a soiree of Kilalaky (music &

dance) and partake with locals in the celebration where the melodies are plucked on a one-string

guitar called a kabosy. You’ll visit a spirulina facility dedicated to producing a variety that has

been proven to prevent malaria! You’ll embark on an eco-walk at a sacred lake whose name

translates to "the lake where there are no dolphins." Everyday, this sacred body of water

mysteriously changes from a milky white hue to turquoise blue! If you’re lucky you might catch a

glimpse of the migrant flamingos there too! On this walk you’ll also encounter a 500 year old

baobab, called “Grandmother” who offers a tangible link to the past. You’re invited to hug her and

connect to the wisdom and resilience embedded in her time-worn bark.

Each stop is a thread that weaves together the culture, nature, and the remarkable stories of the

Malagasy people. The journey culminates with a boat ride to Madagascar's unofficial "Vista of No

Return.” On this ride, you’ll encounter whales and their calves as they prep to head back north

after giving birth in Madagascar’s tranquil reefs.

And as you approach the Vista of No Return, its shores reveal a resemblance to the Maldives -

tranquil, pristine and turquoise waters. It is on this sacred island that locals gather annually to

commemorate the courage and sacrifice of Malagasy freedom fighters who bravely stood

against, and often perished while combating slavery. This visit not only offers a glimpse into the

painful past but also reflects on the resilience and spirit of those who fought for freedom.

Are you as excited as I am?!
