I simply can’t recommend Mani at “Madagascar Endemics and Resorts” highly enough. He can tailor-make your trip to Madagascar and put together the tour of your dreams! Whether you’d like to get up close and personal with lemurs, spend some time on the beach, or a day exploring Antananarivo, Mani can provide. Super fast response to emails, perfect English, and the most helpful attitude you can imagine. Madagascar is not a place to go it alone. Give yourself the peace of mind that someone is looking out for you, and only a phone call away!
Manitra was our tour guide last October 2015 and was very knowledgable on the parks and animals in Madagascar. He was also very patient and allowed plenty of time for everyone to get their photos. He was articulate and spoke English well.
Manitra is phenomenal! His attentiveness and attention to detail made our 10-day trip an exhilarating, relaxing, once in a lifetime dream. Navigating Madagascar can be tough for a tourist, so booking with Manitra is essential—he listened to everything we wanted to do and recommended the best way to accomplish as much as possible plus other gems we didn’t even know about. Everything was organized to a T and everything worked perfectly—drivers and guides were always waiting for us and always spoke clear English. We were able to go east and see lemurs and aye-ayes and then head north to relax on the beaches of Nosy Be and snorkel in the water around Nosy Tanikely. You will have a great time in Madagascar no matter what you do, but Manitra will make it the best trip you ever take! I cannot recommend him enough.
I had the privilege to have Manitra as a stand-in tour guide in Madagascar, when our main tour guide didn’t get some internal aeroplane bookings correct. He was like a breath of fresh air – enthusiastic, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the people he was guiding. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he even followed up with various requests we had made of him after our visit was over. Use this guy – you won’t be disappointed.
Manitra is a top guide He made sure I saw rare lemurs, and was a continuing source of interesting facts. Because he has visited the USA, is especially for American tourists. No detail was left to chance.
I just returned from a marvelous trip to Madagascar with Madagascar Endemics. Our guide, Manitra Andriamialisoa, planned an excellent itinerary, with good lodging and food at each setting and safe drivers. He also selected truly expert local guides to take us on searches for lemurs, chameleons, birds, etc. in each reserve and park we visited. Manitra excels as a cultural guide to his country; he is knowledgable and enthusiastic about everything. He shared his own life story which really enhanced our understanding of what it’s like to live in Madagascar. Finally, Manitra is unfailingly enthusiastic and always in good cheer. It is not easy to travel in Madagascar. Roads are bad, plane schedules randomly change with little warning, trails can be challenging, hotels often have lots of stairs but no elevators, and it is sometimes difficult for English speaking travelers to communicate with the Malagasy speople because they are more conversant in French than English. Manitra was tireless in his efforts to overcome these obstacles and ensure that we had a superb educational experience and an enjoyable visit in his country.
A small group of us traveled to Madagascar this year. The highlight was the lemurs, particularly the activity of the sifikas. It was easy to spend infinite amounts of time observing them. Madagascar is a wonderful country to visit if a diverse nature experience is desired. And the food is as diverse and wonderful as well. Manitra, our guide, is very personable and speaks excellent English. The fact he has studied in the US gives him some advantage to understanding American guests and our culture. He is also interested in photography so is sensitive to photographic moments, in fact often anticipates them, and is always willing to provide the time. Besides covering the general itinerary, there were always extra interesting stops along the way. Accommodate were comfortable, several above average. Except for the drive to Berenty from Ft. Dauphin, road conditions were better than some African countries with bathroom stops available. However, the reward of the ring tailed lemurs and the sifikas in your back yard made any temporary inconvenience worth it.
I used Madagascar Endemics and Resorts for a fantastic trip in May 2014, when I travelled to some very remote areas of Madagascar, namely the stunning area of Marojejy, the beautiful Andringitra National Park and Ranomafana. Everything went very smoothly, I didn’t have to worry about anything, it was all taken care of. And Manitra had devised an itinerary which made the most of these amazing places. it was great to travel with a local guide and Manitra was also a great driver over some very rough roads! I will definitely use his company again.
Manitra Andriamialisoa is an excellent guide – he knows Madagascar inside and out and has excellent judgement as to what you would enjoy and how difficult it is to travel to different locations. He has our highest recommendation.
If you are thinking about visiting the wonderful island of Madagascar, you NEED to book your tour with Manitra. No matter your reason for visiting Madagascar, Manitra will have you covered. He possesses a vast knowledge of the Malagasy culture, language, flora, and fauna.
Manitra was extremely helpful in every aspect of our stay in Madagascar. While every vacation has its bumps in the road, ours were barely noticeable thanks to Manitra. Our stay in Madagascar was a wonderful experience that I will remember forever, and Manitra was played a very large role in making me feel this way.
When I return to Madagascar, I will make sure to book a tour with Madagascar Endemics & Resorts.
Manitra was an amazing and accommodating tour guide. We had a specific itinerary in mind and Manitra made it work. All of our drivers and guides were excellent, and extremely knowledgeable. We had an amazing trip, and would definitely recommend Manitra to anyone looking for a guide.
Manitra really helped us make the most of our short trip to Madagascar. Hiking, seeing lemurs, walking around Tana-Manitra helped arrange it all. I would highly recommend Madagascar Endemics and Resorts to anyone traveling to Madagascar!
Nous avons eu Manitra comme guide lors d’un voyage à Madagascar en famille en 2012. Manitra a su nous faire aimer son pays, il a une très grande connaissance de la culture malgache, de la faune et la flore si extraordinaires, nous avons adoré ce voyage en grande partie grâce à notre guide sans lequel nous serions passés à côté de bien des choses sur l’ILe Rouge… Par ailleurs son français est excellent. Nous le remercions encore pour ces moments superbes.
I had an incredible trip to Madagascar thanks to Manitra! He was super helpful to my sister and I as we figured out our relatively quick trip (12 days) around Madagascar. We both wanted to see different parts of the island and Manitra made it all happen. He is the friendliest and very knowledgable. I highly recommend his services if you are looking to visit Madagascar.
I booked a 20 days photographic tour during the dry season (july/august). It was a very satisfying tour because of the following reasons: Manitra Andriamialisoa, the owner of the company, was a perfect guide; his knowledge about the history, ethnic groups and wildlife of madagascar is outstanding, his arrangements (for example the car/driver, guides in the national parks, hotels) always were lucky…and last but not least he got entertainer qualities. Therefore he respectively his company madagascar endemics resorts is a very good choice for exploring madagascar. Very recommendable!
Three friends and I first met Manitra in October 2006 when he was our guide during a private tour…We had a driver and a guide for three weeks in Mada. Manitra was the guide throughout. That trip was one of our favorites ever: and we are a very well-travelled foursome. We have been to over 135 countries–I am not boasting but I want you to understand that we are well-qualified to judge travel experiences and guides. We visited all over the island nation and fell in love with its people and its wonderful flora and fauna–especially, of course, the marvelous lemurs. Manitra was well-organized, amusing to travel with, excellent in his command of English, and very conversant with Mada’s complicated history as well as its amazing wildlife. Three of we four travelers are avid photographers and Manitra was very helpful in finding the animals and birds and the most photographic scenes. Though we have not returned to Mada since that visit, we have kept in touch with Manitra through e-mails and we know that he is constantly working to improve his guiding skills, his knowledge about the country, its geography & geology as well as the fauna and flora. We have watched him develop a professional website. We have supported his efforts to start his own company which speaks to his ambitions and dedication to bettering himself for his family and his country. I can recommend him to you with enthusiasm and without reservations.
