Madagascar Wildlife & beach holidays

Madagascar is blessed with abundant wildlife and plantlife, with about 80% unique to the island. On this, the world’s fourth largest island, you’ll see species you’ll encounter nowhere else on earth.

Rather like the Galapagos Islands, life on this remote spot, which broke away from the mainland some 160 million years ago, has evolved in its own way, largely free from outside influences. There are very few large predators, one reason for the sheer abundance of wildlife. You’ll find dozens of species of chameleon, frog, bat, butterfly and snake, and the animal with which Madagascar is most strongly linked, the lemur, with over 100 species and subspecies on the island.

This diversity is mirrored by the flora, including thousands of exotic orchids. As well as rainforests, there are steep canyons, stunning rock formations, mountains, lakes and valleys. All this makes Madagascar a prime destination for nature lovers. But that’s not all. There are superb beaches, excellent dive sites, opportunities for watersports, boat trips and rock climbing.

As the island is so large getting around can be something of a challenge, but there is an extensive network of flights linking different regions to make covering large distances easier.
