Our Story

Madagascar Classic Collection was founded in 2007 by Edward Tucker Brown with the opening of the Mandrare River Camp as the first high-standard

all-inclusive camp in Madagascar.

With the general demand from international markets increasing, we started our ground handling service in Madagascar in 2008. Shortly afterwards we opened Manafiafy Beach & Rainforest Lodge in order to expand our unique product range and offer our customers the possibility of visiting a unique beach oasis in southern Madagascar.


Madagascar Classic Collection is a British company based in Antananarivo Madagascar. Nevertheless, we are particularly proud that over 90% of our employees are Malagasy. We attach great importance to the training and development of our Malagasy employees, in order to give them the opportunity to take up management positions in our company instead of hiring foreign employees.


Our Services

Our sales office in the capital, Antananarivo, is where all reservations are taken and our attentive staff are on hand to meet our guests at the airport and ensure that all services run smoothly. Since Madagascar is one of the most remote and challenging destinations, all of our staff have travelled and visited the various routes and hotels themselves. This enables us to guarantee customers an outstanding and pleasantly travel experience. 

Madagascar Classic Collection is a unique collection of two high-class lodges and camps in Madagascar, as well as an expert ground handler and tailor-made, safari specialist tour operator in Madagascar.

We take care of the organisation and booking of all domestic flights, whether private charter around the island or scheduled. 

Whether a short shuttleservice or a daydrive through Madagascars remote nature, we can organize the requested vehicle at any time.

We are happy to handle the booking of all accommodations during the trip, taking into account the special needs and requirements of our clients.

We create extraordinary tailor-made round trips according to the customers wishes and individual needs. 

Our tour guides are not only passionate, but also reliable, extremely experienced and speak fluently English.

An english-speaking contact person can be reached at any time by telephone or Whatsapp.


In a fragile environment, with traditional cultures and values, eco-tourism is an essential tool to sustainably manage our impact.

Mandrare River Camp and Manafiafy Beach and Rainforest Lodge are fully solar-powered, drawing all electricity and hot water needs from the sun. This helps us contribute to the environment by reducing our carbon footprint and not adding to the pressure of deforestation in Madagascar.

Madagascar Classic Collection makes an ongoing contribution to community projects that help local schools rebuild vital roads and protect local forests through community levies and fees. By working closely with and involving the local population in our areas, we aim to promote environmental protection and strengthen and revive pride in local traditions, culture and the environment.
