Madagascar, situated off the south-east coast of Africa, is the fourth largest island in the world (587,000 sq. km.) and one of the planet’s most sublime bio-diversity hot-spots. It’s easily accessible from anywhere in southern Africa. Madagascar split from the Indian peninsula around 88 million years ago thus allowing native plants and animals to evolve in isolation.

It’s famed for its unique wildlife of which 90% is found nowhere else on earth. It’s a place for outdoor enthusiasts (the birdlife is spectacular) and a place where you’ll find lemurs, baobabs, rainforests, hiking trails, diving and more.
