New Madagascar tour part of 2018 line-up of adventure trips 10 per cent earlybird discount off all 2018 tours until August 15, 2017

One of the world’s most exotic and mysterious islands, Madagascar, will play host to a new, guided motorbike tour in 2018, with Extreme Bike Tours unveiling the 15-day adventure as one of eight tours the company will offer around the world next year.

To mark the release of its 2018 range of rides, Extreme Bike Tours is offering a 10 per cent earlybird discount on all its eight tours next year, if booked by August 15, 2017.

Departing June 23, 2018, the all-inclusive, 2000km motorcycle expedition across Madagascar – the world’s fourth largest island – will be Extreme Bike Tours’ first-ever foray on the tropical island to cater for growing numbers of two-wheeled travellers keen to explore new horizons.

Other trips Extreme Bike Tours will offer in 2018 include rides in Cuba, Bhutan, Mongolia, Rajasthan in India, the Indian Himalayas and two adventures in Sri Lanka.

East of Africa in the Indian Ocean and not yet affected by mass tourism, Madagascar is a spectacular island country boasting huge volcanoes, mountains, canyons and waterfalls, dense jungle and the island’s famous mascot, ring-tailed lemurs.  Because of its isolation, 90 per cent of all plant and animal species on Madagascar are found nowhere else in the world.

The island’s special mystique made it famous in 2005 via the animated comedy film, ‘Madagascar’, featuring King Julien as King of the Lemurs. The hit movie was followed by sequels in 2008, 2012 and 2014.

While showcasing Madagascar’s natural gems, Extreme Bike Tours’ first tour across the island will also take riders across a landscape of lush valleys, rice paddies, coffee and vanilla plantations, sleepy, seaside hamlets and traditional, hill-top villages where hand-pulled rickshaws are still used. Guests will also enjoy the warm hospitality of the local Malagasy people.

The 14-night tour begins and ends in the capital, Antananarivo, with guests spending between six and eight hours a day riding either Africa Twin Motorbikes or Honda Transalp bikes across the island. The itinerary includes a canoe ride on the Pangalanes River, a night at the Lemur Forest Camp with a nocturnal tour of the park, the island’s stunning beaches, a ride amongst Madagascar’s famous, prehistoric baobab trees with their massive, cylindrical trunks, and a chance to enjoy delicious, local cuisine.

Any of Extreme Bike Tours’ 2018 tours booked by August 15, 2017, will attract a 10 per cent discount. If booked by this date, the fully supported Madagascar tour on June 23, 2018, costs US$4725 for riders and US$3915 for pillion passengers, including hotel and cabin accommodation along the route, all meals on the tour, fuel and motorbike hire, an internal flight in Madagascar and local transfers.  Flights to Madagascar are extra. After August 15, 2017, the tour is priced from US$5250 for riders and US$4350 for pillion passengers.
