Madagascar

Spectacular landscapes, unique wildlife & unparalleled diving

All of our volunteer programmes in Madagascar are located just off the mainland coast, on the picturesque island of Nosy Komba. Home to weird and wonderful wildlife, unspoilt white sandy beaches, out of this world views, year-round sunshine and bright blue seas offering an impressive and largely undisturbed diving experience, this really is paradise.

Built into the steep, rocky slopes, the eco-friendly volunteer accommodation is surrounded by lush green forests that overlook a spectacular coral reef. Everyday you'll have the chance to snorkel in the azure like waters where you may encounter sea turtles, sting rays, dolphins and a whole host of diverse marine life. Not only this, but you can go lemur spotting at Lokobe National Park, enjoy spectacular views on top of Mount Passot, go whale watching and so much more.

The world’s fourth largest island, Madagascar is a vast magical land just waiting to be discovered. Rich in flora and fauna, much of which is found nowhere else on earth, the former French colony offers a beguiling range of things to see and do as well as many areas to be explored.

Our programmes start on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month throughout the year and you can choose to join us from 2-12 weeks.

Points of Interest

Madagascar was one of the last major areas on Earth to be settled by humans, making the natural beauty and ecological diversity on the island feel like a country forgotten in time. A veneration of ancestry and tradition pervades the national culture, a reverence that is reflected in the country’s architecture and it's many points of interest to visit.
