Holidays to Madagascar

Madagascar introduces you to staggeringly beautiful eco-systems. Located off the African coast, coral reefs and sandy beaches fringe the island, while dry deciduous forests can be found in the west, rainforests to the east and semi-desert conditions in the south.

Madagascar contains facts of epic proportions as it is home to 200,000 species of flora and fauna, 7 of the world’s 8 types of baobab trees and over half its entire gecko species here. There are over 10,000 species of plant, including 1,000 strains of orchid. 

Madagascar is probably best known for its lemur populations, of which the comical ring-tails and dancing sifakas are the most iconic. There are in fact more than 50 lemur species with more being discovered regularly.

There are stunning beaches with snow white sand, untouched coral reef and turquoise waters. The central highlands contain rounded and eroded hills, massive granite outcrops, extinct volcanoes and alluvial plains and marshes, which have been converted into irrigated rice fields. The Ihorombe Region is achingly haunting, with forested canyons and crystal clear natural pools in which to cool off after some wonderful hiking. Possibly the most bizarre region of all, the spiny desert of the southwest, should definitely be visited.
