Madagascar Tours and Trips
If you have are planning to go on holiday to Madagascar, the first thing you should know is that it is like nowhere else on earth. Most of the reasons why are due to its sheer isolation.
Madagascar drifted apart from the African continent around 165 million years ago, meaning that its plant and animal life and finely tuned ecosystem have evolved away from external influences – in other words not much at all.
The 4th largest island in the world, with 18 different tribes, mountains, savanna grasslands, white sandy beaches, dramatic rain forests and vast quantities of animals and plants that cannot be found anywhere else in the world, Madagascar is a vacation destination still waiting to be explored.
The authenticity of Madagascar is not in the large predators of the savanna plains of Kenya and Tanzania, or the King of the jungle in Kruger. It is in what can simply be described as the unique endemic qualities of both the flora and fauna, and it is often the smaller, not the large species that bring about the most satisfaction to the open-minded traveler to Madagascar.
