Reasons to Visit Madagascar

    Madagascar is fringed by stunning coastline and tiny islands. The beaches of Madagascar are beautiful, untouched and undeveloped. Here turquoise waters meet white sandy shores and they are the perfect place to relax after an adventurous time exploring the mainland and its magnificent wildlife.

    Beaches
  • Birds

    The birdlife is remarkable on Madagascar with chances of seeing over 100 endemic species. The coua family, vanga family and Madagascar red fody are to name but a few. With striking plumage and sweet song they are a special feature of this diverse island.

    Birds
  • Chameleons & Frogs

    Over 90% of Madagascar’s chameleons and frogs are endemic and are found all over the country. They range from giants like the Parson’s chameleon that can reach 60cms to some the size of a fingernail, and found in every colour under the sun the variation that can be seen is staggering.

    Lemurs are the star attraction in Madagascar, and their endearing behaviour and abundant energy will keep everyone entertained. From the largest indri and its haunting eerie cry, to the smallest nocturnal mouse lemur with its huge amber eyes make each species so unique and fascinating.

    The rainforests of Madagascar are a real treasure trove of exceptional and unique flora and fauna. Here you will easily find lemurs, chameleons and frogs hidden away and the diversity of species found here is overwhelming. All exploring is done on foot on the trails that weave through the forest.

The Islands & Beaches of Madagascar

Madagascar

Madagascar is fringed by a number of beautiful islands.

Nosy Be is the best known, a relatively developed place with a number of boutique hotels. Though you can find quiet corners of Nosy Be, we prefer the sleepier islands such as Ile Sainte Marie on the east coast, Nosy Komba off northern Madagascar, or the private islands of Tsarabanjina and Nosy Iranja.

Deserted beaches

On these islands it is easy to Madagascar’s Islands find deserted beaches with soft sand and clear water. Ghost crabs scuttle across the sand and - particularly in the north - frigate birds can be seen soaring overhead. Many of the islands have villages on or nearby and you become accustomed to the daily sight of dhows sailing past, filled with thatching palms, grain and cows until they float just inches above the water. In villages breadfruit trees shade bamboo huts and zebu cattle graze in the fields.

Activities

The islands are perfect for relaxing after the adventurous experience of Madagascar’s rainforests. Flights go regularly from Antananarivo to Ile Sainte Marie while even more fly to Nosy Be, from where boats reach Nosy Komba, Tsarabanjina and Nosy Iranja. Once on the islands, days can be spent snorkelling and diving, pottering around on a bicycle or just lying on the beach.
