Places to visit in Madagascar

Shrouded in mystery, Madagascar’s distance from the African continent has played to its advantage when it comes to its weird and wonderful wildlife. Our specialists have walked the country’s forests and visited its white-sand beaches to identify where to go and what to see on your Madagascar holiday. In the high montane rainforests of Andasibe National Park, long-limbed indris swing and call from high in the canopy, while guided walks through the dry deciduous forests of Anjajavy Private Nature Reserve give you a chance to see vivid frogs and chameleons of all sizes. You might even glimpse the elusive fossa — Madagascar’s chief predator. Mix in a stay on the sleepy island of Île Sainte-Marie, where humpback whales come to calve between June and September.

Book a safari holiday to Madagascar and experience one of the world's most unique islands. Isolated from the rest of the world, there were no large predators; here wildlife evolved on its own distinct path. Of Madagascar’s 200,000 species, more than 80% are endemic.
