Madagascar – Things to do

Madagascar Attractions


Discover Madagascar’s wildlife

Madagascar is famous for its incredible wildlife. Around 150,000 of the island’s 200,000 species of animals are totally unique. Given the range of habitats, there’s a cornucopia of experiences availa-ble. Take a jungle safari on the untouched Masoala peninsula, where brightly coloured birds flutter and lemurs launch themselves from tree to tree. Charter a boat and get close to humpback whales or dive in fabulous coral gardens.

Hike the Avenue of the Baobabs

This ancient row of baobabs is one of Madagascar’s most celebrated sights. Many centuries ago, this region would have been a thick forest of these distinctive deciduous trees. Today, this small sec-tion on the road between Morondava and Belon'i Tsiribihina is all that remains. The baobabs stand upwards of 30m high and can be as much as 800 years old. It’s a unique and breath taking sight that can only be reached by 4x4.

Drift away on Nosy Be

Sometimes you just need to take a little time out. Madagascar is home to some of the best beaches in Africa. Among them is Nosy Be. This tiny island is located north east of the mainland and sur-rounded on all sides by the Indian Ocean. Here you can relax on a lounger, drink in hand as the sun sets on the horizon. It’s the perfect place to reflect on life back home.
