Rental Fleet & Rates

Our fleet in Madagascar consists of the Nissan Double Cab and Nissan X-Trail. The Double Cab is brand new and with increased clearance and bigger wheels, able to beat any terrain. The X-Trail is our smaller 4x4. This vehicle is the best value for money if you are only planning to cruise down the RN7or the Northern route towards Nose Be and Diego Suarez.

We own all our vehicles and never subcontract from third parties. Each car is serviced at our own workshop after every trip. In the unlikely event that you have a break down, rest assured that we offer 24/7 roadside assistance and have a replacement vehicle ready.

Add some adventure with camping gear

Whether you are on a budget, love the outdoors, or just don't want to have to book your accommodation ahead of time: road tripping in Madagascar with a full set of camping gear in the back of the car gives you a great sense of flexibility.We can equip the Nissan Double Cab with a rooftop tent or you hire a Quechua dome tent. Both comes with a full set of quality camp gear, consisting of a mattress, sleeping bag, headlights, cooking equipment, chairs and table. The costs are € 20 / day for the roof top tent or € 3 per person / per day for the dome tent. 

As opposed to our other road trip destinations, accommodation is really cheap in Madagascar. Nevertheless, camp gear does come in handy, in particular during the peak season ( July-Sept), when many of the most popular lodges along the RN7 are fully booked, and reserving ahead of time is required. Camping possibilities are limited at the west coast.
Keep in mind that camping possibilities are less widespread in Madagascar than compared to our other destinations. You are not allowed to take your car into the Natural Parks. You leave your car behind at the entrance gate and continue by foot. In case you want to go camping at a public campsite inside a National Park, you arrange a porter, and he carries your ground tent and equipment. Wild camping is not a sensible thing to do if you are only with the two of you. We do organise bush camping safaris ( with rooftop tents) into the remote Makay and Southern Madagascar ( Fort Dauphin), but you need to go with a driver. 
Therefore, we find you are more versatile and get better value for money if you rent the dome tent with camp gear. But the choice is up to you.
