Trip report: Madagascar, the Eighth Continent (Oct 2007) by Tropical Birding

Guided by Josh Engel.

Madagascar ranks among the world’s ultimate birding and natural history destinations. With over 100 endemic bird species and five endemic families, even the most traveled of world birders is guaranteed a large number of lifers. Add to this the remarkable lemurs, chameleons, geckos and bizarre plants and you have a tour unparalleled in unique fauna and flora. This year’s tour was phenomenal; we cleaned up in the northwest and southwest and did extremely well in the east. Our new Marojejy extension visited one of the most remote and seldom visited national parks in the country. We were welcomed to the park by the incredible Helmet Vanga, and spent three days soaking in the peace and splendor of this unspoiled wilderness.
