Madagascar - The World's "Eighth Continent"
Africa's Largest Island
Madagascar is a beautiful island, ringed by golden beaches and palm trees. With an interior resplendent in its variety from grassy plateaus to volcanoes and opaque forests and natural reserves. It's long isolation from the neighbouring continents has resulted in a unique mix of plants and animals, many found nowhere else in the world. Rich with wildlife, there are 10 different species of lemur that inhabit the island, and about half the world's 150 or so species of chameleons. The island is also a mass of unusual and colourful flowers and other flora. In terms of biodiversity alone, Madagascar really is one of a kind.
Some ecologists refer to Madagascar as the "eighth continent".
Please Note: Madagascar is not for the faint of heart. Tourism infrastructure is very limited and accommodation levels are quite basic. English is not widely spoken, French and Malagasy are the primary languages spoken on the island. You will need to have a 'go with the flow' attitude to fully enjoy and appreciate this unique land.
