The world’s fourth largest island, Madagascar is situated just off the east coast of Africa, home to an wealth of unique flora and fauna.
Madagascar’s tropical climate, sun-kissed beaches, friendly locals and diversity of wildlife and flora make it a must-see destination for travellers and wildlife-enthusiasts alike.
Few countries on the planet can match Madagascar’s biodiversity – over 70% of the 250,000 wildlife species on the island are found nowhere else in the world, while it’s estimated that 90% of the plant-life on the island is also native to the country.
We swam with turtles, kayaked through mangroves, relaxed for hours on unspoilt white-sand beach, dined on magnificent French-style cuisine, and constantly gazed up -- trying to spot the curious creatures that called down to us from the thick canopy of trees above.
