Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world, situated in the Indian Ocean, to the South-East of Africa, across from Mozambique.
The terrain is varied, from a low-lying coastal area to a central plateau of tropical rainforests and cool, dry mountainous regions, much of the landscape is wild and unexplored. Madagascar’s cultural diversity is a reflection of its colonial past with the population comprising the indigenous African-Asian people, plus descendents of French colonials as well as Christians and Muslims. Madagascar provides a variety of accommodation choices to cater for all budgets as well as a range of activities to suit all tastes. While at the coast, you can relax at the beach or try scuba diving or snorkelling. The cities also provide much to explore, with their bustling markets and historical sites. Nature lovers will not want to miss the opportunity to see Madagascar’s unique flora and fauna by visiting the National Parks and tropical rainforests.
