Located roughly 200 miles off Africa’s east coast – the island nation of Madagascar is uniquely different than the rest of the continent. You’ll find lemurs, dense, lush rainforests with much of its flora found nowhere else on earth, including the quirky spiny forests, and arid deserts with unusual rock formations throughout. Madagascar’s menageries of weird and wonderful creatures includes the world’s biggest and smallest chameleons and over 70 species of lemur- longtailed primates endemic to the island. The Madagascan landscape is no less compelling than the resident wildlife,with terrain ranging from lush jungles and palm frimged beaches to the knife-edge karst tsingys of the Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park’s “stone forests”. Madagascar is an otherworldly paradise where visitors are offered a unique glimpse into a fantastic one-of-a kind world.
