Madagascar Holidays

A holiday to Madagascar promises a host of natural wonders.

Cast adrift in isolation for over 80 million years, the world's fourth largest island boasts an astonishing range of bio-diversity found almost nowhere else on earth. Largely off the beaten track even today, this is a deeply rewarding destination that few have had the pleasure of discovering.

Deep in the heart of the famous national parks you’ll find unique wildlife from lemurs and giant chameleons to over 300 species of bird. The scenery is no less varied from lush rainforests and rice terraces, to desert like plains dotted with soaring Baobab trees.

To complete the picture, you’ll discover beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters teeming with marine life. With so much to offer, Madagascar is sure to capture your heart!
