Sometimes called “the eighth continent” for its biodiversity, Madagascar is home to 5% of all the world’s wildlife and vegetation, most of which is exclusive to the island. Madagascar’s unique flora and fauna is matched by epic landscapes of unbelievable diversity; just 200 miles can take you from desert to rainforest and everything in between.
Dazzling pearl beaches guard some of the world’s best snorkeling and diving sites, and the bustling cities of Central Madagascar are tattooed with fertile rice fields and historical monuments. From the unexplored coral reefs to the rich tapestry of the Mandrare River, you will quickly realize that this mysterious Island of Eden is one of the world’s most remarkable and best-kept secrets. Half the fun is getting to these incredible attractions.
