There are plenty of other reasons to go to Madagascar, and most of them are only found in Madagascar.

As a result of the island’s long isolation from neighboring continents, Madagascar is home to an abundance of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth.  Approximately 90 percent of all plant and animal species found in Madagascar are endemic. Most famous are the lemurs (a type of primate), the carnivorous fossa (a cat-like mammal)  and many, many birds. This distinctive ecology has led some to refer to Madagascar as the “8th continent”.

The type of people who travel to beautiful Madagascar are those who appreciate anything different, unique and unusual.  Nature, outdoors and soft adventure lovers. It’s a photographers and videographers dream;  the images they capture prompt people to ask: “where is that?”.  Malagasy infrastructure isn’t sophisticated, but clean and comfortable accommodation is available. Madagascar is the world’s 4th largest island but has few roads, redefining off road driving! You can go from rainforest to desert in just 185 miles, but it may take all day to get there! . Divers will revel in the choice of sites, from underwater ‘cathedrals’ to shipwrecks, and will relish the chance to see stingrays, whale sharks and reef sharks. Snorkelers will encounter turtles and marvel at the rainbow of colors of corals and fish.
