My partner and I are going to Madagascar in August. We have the air tickets already. I have been in touch with two or three agencies and their prices are a bit too high for us (we already paid a fortune for the air tickets).
We have about 20 days and want to go to Andasibe, Tsingy (with a river trip), Kirindy and the Alley of Baobabs and then finish with 3-4 days on Saint Marie. We don't mind camping whenever possible and do not need posh hotels (although hot water is a must!)
For this we have been quoted around 1800 EUR each. Is it reasonable? Would it be better to just rent a car with a guide without the whole package? Any recommendations of a rental place/ a guide that doesn't cost arm and leg? We don't really want to join a group tour....
Any advice would be appreciated since it would be our first time there.
Thanks a lot!
