The spectacular, paradise island of Madagascar offers you an experience like no other! This exotic biodiversity hotspot is an absolute must for any inquisitive traveller, boasting some of the world’s most unusual plant and animal species.
Having broken away from India some 88 million years ago, the island of Madagascar evolved in relative isolation meaning that today, 90% of its animals and 80% of its plants are unique. Indeed, so important is this area from a biodiversity point of view that many ecologists refer to the island as the eighth continent.
Home to over 100 species of Lemur and a vast array of other fascinating animals, it is little wonder than Madagascar has become such a popular tourist destination. As well as the wildlife here, this island has a strong cultural tradition which you will discover when you meet the local tribespeople and learn all about their way of life. You’ll also discover fantastic natural features here such as stunning lakes, white sandy beaches and crystal clear seas.
