Who We Are
8CE is a Malagasy ground agent and tour operator, owned and operated by women.
We offer tailored and unique experiences of the wonders of Madagascar.
Through our tours we hope to share our passion for this island and its amazing people, landscapes and wildlife.
Rojo Johnarson is the founder of 8TH CONTINENT EXPEDITIONS. She started to work as a tour guide in 2004, and became well known within the guides’ association she then joined, as the “English-speaking guide”. Guiding helped her learn more about her own country, and about people’s needs while travelling.
Why Travel With Us?
We strive to answer your inquiries quickly and completely. Most messages are answered within 48 hours.
We realize that each person has different goals in travelling. Regardless of your approach, we would be delighted to help you discover Madagascar in your own way.
We love our jobs, and we want you to have a fantastic time, and see the very best of our home island. This isn't just a job for us - it's our life and passion!
We never do things halfway! We give professional service both prior to your trip, in planning, quoting, and when you are “on the ground”. Madagascar can be a logistically challenging place to travel, but we do our best to smooth out the bumps and allow you to enjoy the best of our amazing country.
Quality and Excellent Value
We do not “sell tours”; we help you travel in the way you enjoy and can afford. We offer quality tours that are a good value for money. You only pay for what you want, and what you need. We are able to work with people of all budgets, and are happy to communicate frankly about tradeoffs between cost and luxury.
Poverty is the greatest challenge in the conservation of Madagascar’s people and wild places. Tourism provides a vital source of income for local people, and a strong rationale for the protection of the remaining forests. We also believe that showing visitors the realities of life here, both good and bad, is essential.
“Not all those who wander are lost.”
