The Land of Lemurs

Visit Madagascar

Great for: Unique wildlife, hiking, beach, water sports, cultural tours

Madagascar is the crown jewel of Africa’s untouched destinations. Tricky logistics and a general air of mystery around the island means that it’s often overlooked by holidaymakers. However, steadfast travellers who venture here will be rewarded with once-in-a-lifetime experiences and rare wildlife sightings in unreal settings.

The island’s northern region is a favourite for those who want to explore Madagascar’s vibrant, warm waters. Westward, adventure awaits in Tsingy Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve, with its needle-sharp limestone outcrops and the nearby Avenue of the Baobabs. To the southeast, the rainforests enchant avid hikers – or anyone looking to come face to face with lemurs.
