Undoubtedly one of the world’s most fascinating destinations Madagascar is a country few know much about and has a timeless quality that makes it fascinating to adventurous travellers who like going off the beaten track. Lying off the east coast of Africa in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and home to some of the weirdest and most wonderful creatures on earth, it is one of only a handful of official Biodiversity Hotspots of the world with an enviable list of wildlife wonders for safari travellers.
This evolutionary melting pot is home to endearing lemurs, dazzling reptiles and remarkable birdlife. It offers one of the most rewarding wildlife experiences in the world, from singing Indri, dancing Sifaka and Ring-tailed Lemurs, all providing astounding up close and personal primate experiences, and its coastline is ideal for scuba, surf and snorkelling, in warm tropical waters along sun-kissed beaches.
For those who’ve been to Africa before and are now looking for a new exotic and exciting destination to explore away from the crowds, Madagascar is a must-see destination.
