A groom-to-be had a fascinating proposal: he wanted to surprise his bride with a romantic honeymoon trip to Madagascar. The challenge for our travel consultant was to find the most romantic locations in this far flung, exotic, yet still wild destination. This itinerary could inspire your own romantic journey.
Luxury Romantic Honeymoon: Madagascar
Biking the Gardens of Versailles
Versailles is a gigantic parklike estate with a number of lesser-known residences and follies galore. Pedal the grounds with your expert guide to discover Marie Antoinette’s get-away from her life at Versailles, a “farm” where she retreated with her closest ladies in waiting. We can also arrange a picnic or excursion into the village for lunch.

Couture & Pose
Provide your measurements and answer a questionnaire in advance and we’ll have your one-of-a-kind garment created by an up-and-coming designer. Meet the designer in his or her atelier as your garment is fitted for its debut. In two days your couture will be in your room along with a hair and makeup team. Strut your stuff from graffiti-filled alleyways to romantic Eiffel Tower locations as a professional photographer captures each perfect pose.
Hiking to the Canyon des Singes & Piscine Naturelle
Embark on a hike through the Canyon des Singes (Canyon of Monkeys) to discover ring-tailed lemurs and Sifaka lemurs. Continue to the Piscine Naturelle where a natural stone cave overlooks a crystal-clear waterfall.
Journey to the top of a spectacular mountain, enjoy a mouthwatering meal, sip a cocktail, watch the breathtaking sunset and gaze at the stars in the southern skies.
Pass traditional fishing villages as you ride along the edge of the Indian Ocean, through splendid sandy dunes and arid expanses while discovering the unique flora (and perhaps even fauna) of the region.
You’ll need your expert local guide and the inside access provided by TCS World Travel to visit this tiny oft-closed museum, which features exhibits on local culture, an elephant bird egg and other oddities, including an ancient mask with real human teeth.
Discover the magnificent sea life in this unspoiled paradise, which can include encounters with whale sharks on their migrations.
Take a guided expedition to the village of Ampangorina where the women embroider tablecloths and the men produce woodcarvings. Meet the artists and watch them work while learning about their lives.
Explore the Nature Reserve
Join your private guide to explore the trails of the private nature reserve of Anjajavy, which hosts more than 1,800 species of plants, many found only in Madagascar.
Take to the sea on a fully skippered catamaran to discover hidden coves, secret coral reefs and deserted beaches.
