Madagascar Travel

Famed for its abundant lemur population, tropical rainforests, and warm sapphire oceans, Madagascar is an island of natural treasures. Sitting off the coast of Africa, Madagascar offers an unforgettable wildlife-rich holiday experience. From scuba diving to dhow safaris, trekking through jungles, and spotting lemurs, the island is a haven for nature lovers. On the island, locals don’t use cars very often, so a lot of areas are explored by walking or using a pirogue—a traditional Malagasy boat. The country is a diamond in the rough, with some regions boasting an infrastructure geared towards tourism, while others are completely unchartered. The diverse heritage influenced by Arabs, Indians, British, French, and Chinese, is evident in the mouthwatering Malagasy cuisine.

The southern stretches of Madagascar are dominated by dry mountainous national parks, plateaus, rock limestone structures, caves, and canyons. Many people flock to this part of Madagascar to hike and explore the rugged terrain. Northern Madagascar comprises hilly regions, mangrove swamps, rainforests, white sandy beaches, and avenues of ancient baobabs. The northwest coast is a picturesque part of the island comprising deep bays, islands, and tropical island vibes.

The capital city of Madagascar is Antananarivo, where there is an international airport. Small towns scattered across the island have domestic airports that connect to the country’s main airport.
