"The basic gentleness of the Malagasy people leaves a lasting impression. Experiencing it first hand while there, is always very humbling."

Things To Do In Madagascar

  • Savour magical scenery and compellingly unique wildlife and get the 'rainforest experience' in Andasibe-Mantadia, Ranomafana or Masoala National Parks. 
  • Marvel at geological wonders of the ‘tsingy’ fortresses in the otherworldly Ankarana Special Reserve and Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park. 
  • Enjoy the psychedelic underwater world off Nosy Sakatia, Nosy Tanikely Marine Reserve or Nosy Tsarabanjina
  • Go whale watching off idyllic Ile Sainte Marie; around the Nosy Be archipelago or at Manafiafy
  • Explore magnificent, wildlife-rich baobab forests of Kirindy and Anjajavy Forest Reserves. 

Lemurs and other wildlife

For most holiday makers, the number one attraction is lemurs, of which there are over 100 varieties. Innumerable other highlights include the world’s smallest and largest chameleons, around 400 species of frogs and over 110 species of birds found nowhere else.


Almost as big a draw as the wildlife is the Great Red Island’s amazingly varied landscapes. These range from dense, humid rainforests to dry sandstone formations naturally sculpted into fantastic shapes, and from razor-sharp limestone pinnacles called 'tsingy' to imposing granite domes or 'inselbergs'.


Madagascar and its offshore islands are also fringed with gorgeous sandy beaches, and with reefs teeming with exotic fish. Madagascar holidays here can – and should – combine rainforest hikes and cross-country tours with time spent chilling out on a sunbed under a bending palm.
