About the challenge

From canyons and gorges to bush-covered plains and dense forests, rocky ridges and the summit of the island’s highest accessible mountain peak, this is a unique and highly varied trek steeped in natural beauty. Our route takes us through the sandstone rock gorges of Isalo National Park, home to ring-tailed lemurs, before heading east to the valleys and ridges of Andringitra National Park, where our goal is Pic Boby (2658m), Madagascar’s second-highest mountain.

Madagascar is an adventurous destination, with rough roads making travelling distances long. The rewards more than make up for the efforts of seeing the country – this is a truly unforgettable trek.

After completing this stunning trek, you’ll then get the unique opportunity to visit a WaterAid project and see first- hand how the money you raise can make a difference. All the money raised for this trip will be restricted to funding WaterAid projects in Madagascar.
