Madagascar, the world's 4th largest island, measures 1571 km in length
and 571 km across. Located 400 kilometres off the east coast of Africa,
and is one of the most exotic and mysterious islands in the world. It is
legendary for the profusion of its wildlife and flora, 80% of which are
endemic to this island paradise. Here you will find jumping, flying,
slithering beasts that stem from Mother Natures quirky sense of humour,
which would seem more at home on some alien world. This is the only
place in the world where you can see lemurs dancing with their babies in
the wild. It has an exceptionally diverse and spectacular variety of
landscapes -  mountains, coral isles, deserts, rainforests, dazzling
beaches fringing the Indian Ocean, island archipelagos to baobab forests
and craters. All of Africa has one variety of baobab tree, for example, and
Madagascar has seven, as well as 19,000 species of plants -- a world

Madagascar is divided into 5 characteristic geographical regions. Rain
rarely falls in the Dry South, in this world of towering Baobabs and unique
spiny forests. This environment dotted with fascinating, colourfully
decorated tombs add a unique character to the area, providing much for
cultural enthusiasts as well as nature lovers.

The Far North experience starts in the town of Antsiranana, also known as
Diego Suarez. The city is located on a pictureque emerald bay scattered
with islands and fabulous sunsets. Variety epitomises this region, both in
climate and in the colourful cultures found in the town.

The Green Eastern coast of Madagascar is known for its unique and lush
rainforests which are found nowhere else in the world.

Antananarivo - the business capital of the Island, built on a series of hills
(the Highlands), is a fascinating cultural mix of architectural styles as
unique and varied as the inhabitants of this sprawling city.

The western part of Madagascar is dryer that the eastern part and
consequently deciduous forest flourish here, harbouring a wealth of rare
endemic wildlife.

For those who are looking for something new and different in a holiday, a
Madagascar holiday is for you.  Madagascar is a nature-lovers destination
where you can swim in secluded coves, snorkel and dive coral reefs,
water-ski, enjoy bird watching, take a hike, and venture out on guided
nature walks in national parks and reserves.

If you are planning a honeymoon, or a trip to celebrate a special occasion,
Madagascar will exceed your expectations. Its landscapes and reserves
will delight people with a taste for discovery and there are a handful of
places combining a beautiful location, excellent accommodation and
