Where the lemurs live.

In March 2020, we’re off to Ethiopia and Madagascar on an R. Crusoe Hosted Journey. This one-time-only tour (March 25 to April 7) is hosted by Steve Goodman, Field Museum field biologist and winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant for his conservation work in Madagascar.

We begin in Ethiopia, where we focus on the 12th-century holy city of Lalibela, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the world’s most remarkable manmade treasures.

Then to Madagascar, which has some of the planet’s most unique and fascinating endemic flora and fauna, including lemurs, found only in Madagascar. Having lived and conducted research in Madagascar for several decades, Steve is eager to share his knowledge and experiences with us.

We spend our days in nature reserves on the island of Nosy Be and on the Madagascar mainland. There is also time to explore coral reefs and other marine environments teeming with life.

The trip culminates with a visit to Association Vahatra in Antananarivo, a Malagasy-run organization founded by Steve and his Malagasy colleagues in collaboration with the Field Museum. It is devoted to advancing scientific research on the island’s biodiversity.

Our journey promises to be an unforgettable experience. Since we will keep the group small, if you are interested in joining us, be sure to contact Jane Franklin right away at jfranklin@rcrusoe.com or call 888-490-8019. We expect this Hosted Journey to sell out quickly.
