Ruthless RN5, Madagascar

an epic self-drive on the world's most dangerous road

When the journey is as, if not more exciting than the destination; you are in Madagascar. The drive through Route No. 5 (aka RN5) is a painstakingly curated expedition, that will allow you to live the real Madagascar experience that only the locals know! The RN5 is regarded as one of the most dangerous roads in the world which runs alongside the Indian Ocean and includes river crossings, deep sand, slippery red clay, steep gradients and rocks. The short segment of this route was part of the popular show - Grand Tour, hosted by the famous trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. As per Jeremy “The Madagascar Special was the Grand Tour's toughest trip yet”. What we intend to do is to drive even further into the RN5 making this expedition a one of its kind.
