Get a new perspective on Africa’s wildlife in Madagascar, an island praised for its incredible biodiversity. Housing a staggering 5% of the world’s known plant and animal species (with a majority being endemic to the island), Madagascar is a nature-lover’s dream. However, the Great Red Island also offers its guests more than 3,000 miles of coastline, a rich Creole culture, and a fantastic diversity of landscape that ranges from rainforest to desert. While Madagascar is infamous for its poor roads, which make getting around challenging, the one-of-a-kind adventures it provides are well worth the effort.
- Meet Madagascar’s incredible population of endemic wildlife, including lemurs, flamingos, sifakas, chameleons, and Nile crocodiles.
- Dive into the island’s rich Creole culture by sampling its increasingly popular cuisine, which features a fantastic blend of Asian, African, and European flavors.
- Enjoy the sun and sand of some of Madagascar’s neighboring islands, including the palm-fringed beaches of Ile Sainte-Marie and the popular white sand beaches of Nosey Be.
- Unwind in some of Madagascar’s new luxury resorts, some which are nestled on their own private islands.
