MADAGASCAR

One of the world’s last undiscovered corners, few countries on the planet match Madagascar’s biodiversity.

Madagascar is one of the world’s last undiscovered corners. This island is the fourth largest in the world and boasts unique flora and fauna and hugely diverse terrain―it truly is like nowhere else on earth! Madagascar has a tropical climate, and is surrounded by sun-kissed beaches. The locals are friendly and the wildlife and flora is incredibly diverse―making Madagascar a must-see destination for travellers and wildlife enthusiasts alike.

Few countries on the planet match Madagascar’s biodiversity. The island is situated in the Indian Ocean off the coast of southern Africa. The centre of the island is characterised by highlands. The east coast is covered in rainforest, and is home to many different types of lemurs―primates that are endemic to Madagascar. While you are visiting this area and discovering the rice plantations and local life, why not allocate some time to watching the Hira Gasy, an open-air music-dance-storytelling experience?

The western side of the island is open savannah, where you will find the Alley of the Baobabs.

The southern tip is semi-desert, ideal for dramatic walks in Isalo National Park. With many endemic species, Madagascar is a fascinating place.

The cuisine is based on rice on this island. The rice plantations on the highlands were introduced by the French, and have become the staple of every meal. Expect to find Chinese and Indian influences, mixed with local fruits, vegetables, and seafoods.

Accommodation options range from high-end lodges and hotels, to other options depending on your budgetary requirements. Let us know what your travel needs are and we will book accommodation to suit your individual wishes. Plan an Island vacation by combining your Madagascar trip with Mauritius, and travel by boat to the Seychelles. Or combine Madagsacar with South Africa, and experience these two different countries.
