Separated from Africa millions of years ago, Madagascar is the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean with its palm-fringed beaches, spiny forests and limestone labyrinths.

A nature lover’s dream, it shelters a plethora of unique species including the giant indri, lemurs, sifakas and the aye-aye. Madagascar was also a historic meeting point between Africa and Asia, with a rich blend of Indonesian and African cultures. The country has very limited infrastructure for tourism, so even seasoned travellers may find the country’s services and accommodation challenging at times. However, that’s all part of the adventure!
