One of the world’s most mysterious countries is the island state of Madagascar. It’s home to dozens of endemic species, one-of-a-kind landscapes, and lots of photo opportunities. So, I’m extremely excited to announce a Madagascar photography tour in August 2020. And, better yet the wonderful @alajode will be co-leading with me!
This going to be a brilliant trip and will fall in our “VIP Scouting Trip” Category.
Start/End City: Antananarivo, Madagascar
Dates: August 15, 2020 – August 26, 2020
Max Group Size: 5 participants
Activity Level: Minimal. Short hikes/walks
What’s A VIP Scouting Trip to Madagascar
Essentially, the designation for a VIP scouting trip is applied to trips where our goal is exploring new photography locations. Some of these places might be fairly iconic photo spots such as Baobab Alley, but we’ll also devote significant time to exploration and discovery.
These trips are also smaller group size than normal.
In general, these trips aren’t necessarily for “new locations” just that more time is spent location scouting rather than just hitting up the classic photo spots.

Ready to Book?
To reserve your space on the tour, you’ll need to place a deposit of 700 Euros. Full payment is due 60 days before the departure date.
**Note** If the photography trip to Madagascar is sold out, please send me an email to brendanvanson at gmail dot com to join the waiting list.
The price of the trip is based on double occupancy. Essentially what that mean is that if you book solo you’ll be matched up with a roommate of the same gender for the trip. Obviously, if you book as a pair, you’ll share your own private accommodation.
However, if you book solo, you can pay a “single supplement” to have private accommodation alone for the trip. The price of a single supplement on this trip is €800. Of course, if you’re travelling solo, that’s optional.
