Madagascar is situated 400 kilometres/240 miles off the south east coast of Africa and is the fourth largest island in the world. Its principal attractions will appeal to nature lovers and beach fans on a Madagascar vacation.

It is the one of the most biologically diverse countries anywhere with an interior resplendent in its variety from grassy plateaus to volcanoes, rainforests and natural reserves. Its 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 capital is Antanarivo the capital, is a lively city and offers some interesting shopping in its markets  when travelling to Madagascar. The city of Antsirabe was founded by Norwegians in 1856 and is the only place in Madagascar which has a European flavour.

Starting with nature, there are a number of places offering exotic scenery and animal and bird life. The Ranomafana National Park is the most visited and consists of dense rainforests. The wildlife is abundant. The Andasibe Special Reserve contains the Indri Indri, lemurs, chameleons and exotic birds plus dazzling displays of orchids. The Isalo National Park is spectacular with a backdrop of huge towering mountains many of which have eroded and being sandstone reflect immensely beautiful colours. Again one can see lemurs plus birds, lizards and snakes.

Madagascar’s other attraction, beaches can be found on small islands off its coast. One of the best known is Nosy Be Beach, a veritable tropical paradise with a range of mountains in the background and with deserted beaches and crystal clear water offering the ability to snorkel or scuba dive. Another is St. Marie beach which again offers white sand beach plus coral reefs. It is here you can view Humpback whales. A unique feature is a Pirates Cemetery.

If you are looking for an "off the beaten track" destination, then one of our Madagascar tours is a great choice.
