December 4 to 17, 2021

Journey aboard the Island Sky with biology professor Anthony Barnosky and a team of naturalists to visit spectacular marine reserves, national parks and white-sand beaches of Madagascar, Réunion and Mauritius. 

Truly unique. Geographically isolated for millions of years, Madagascar boasts a dizzying array of exotic plants and animals, 90% of which is found nowhere else on earth. Meet the natives. Observe many species of lemurs up close in their natural habitat, including the red ruffed lemur and the aye-aye, and learn about Madagascar’s dogged conservation efforts to protect these incredible animals. Unmatched beauty. Travel to the village of Chamarel on the island of Mauritius and marvel at its spectacular waterfalls and “seven-colored earth” sand dunes with their dazzling array of colors. Nature’s aquarium. Snorkel in the warm, pristine waters encircling Nosy Tanikely, a tiny, uninhabited island rimmed by sandy beaches and colorful coral beds teeming with tropical fish and giant sea turtles.
