Traveling with PRIORI

PRIORI wants to show all possible aspects of Madagascar to the visitors. Because Madagascar is an island with very many and quite different life-areas. PRIORI wants to open doors for the travelers, would like to manage contacts to colleagues of your profession and would like to get you into conversations with the population. We promote 'ecotourisme': trips, which care about ecology and the human nature. We would like that the visitors and the visited get something out of it. As a result in the course of the past years many contacts between travelers and traveled have been created and continue still up to today. Of course, we attach also a high value to reliability and a good preparation of your trip. Since we are permanently on the site, we know exactly the atmosphere of Madagascar and are able to react quickly to unforeseen events as well as we can arrange special-wishes.

The trips are entirely conceived in the country. The net value added remains in Madagascar.

The PRIORI-team would like to show you the sunbathed palms, but the shadows under them as well.

Project management

PRIORI organizes also seminars and workshops for international organizations in Madagascar, produces studies and assessments for projects within the development-cooperation.

The whole production including the cutting of this film of 30 minutes was executed in Madagascar. 1997, the film "Under the southern cross" was produced, a documentary about the traditional sailing boats on the west coast of Madagascar. 1998, PRIORI produced a film for the Swiss relief organization MIVA.
