Travel to Madagascar

This island nation, sitting just off the coast of Africa, is known for its unique flora and fauna.  It is a land that is ruled by lemurs, but 90% of the plants and animals found on this large island cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. This makes it a unique exploration opportunity for those who love a good adventure. Its isolation has helped Madagascar to earn the nickname of the “Eight Continent.”

You’ll find the landscapes are quite spectacular in Madagascar. Because of its unique development, the parks of this island are the perfect attraction. You’ll find unique rock formations in Ankarana, mountains to climb in Andringitra, and impressive canyons in Isalo. The Avenue of the Baobabs, the unique trees of the island, are another popular attraction to see.

Many travelers visit Madagascar from September thru November, taking advantage of the cooler and dry months of Winter. The monsoon season is February and March, but that is also the best time to visit the island to see its flowering orchids. For a unique way to experience the seasons, consider booking a tour of the Tsiribinhina River, allowing you to camp and cook under the stars.

As one might expect on an island, there are resorts available to cater to your every need. The tropical climate, gentle waters, and gradual shelving make it the perfect destination for a peaceful afternoon of complete relaxation.

Madagascar can offer you a rustic adventure, a relaxing resort opportunity, or your own perfect itinerary. It is an island that is just as unique as your needs, making it a wonderful holiday opportunity.
