Wildlife Holidays in Madagascar
Madagascar is a country quite unlike any other. So often are the words 'unique' and 'bizarre' used to describe the world's fourth-largest island that their value is diminished - yet Madagascar is just that. It displays great diversity of habitat, with distinct areas of rainforest, deciduous forest, high mountain and desert. But it is the extraordinary array of wildlife that these different habitats support, the majority of which is found nowhere else in the world, that is Madagascar's principal attraction.
Essentially, Madagascar is nothing short of intoxicating - a destination brimming with intrigue and excitement. Its strange and incongruous mix of wildlife and culture combine to produce a fascinatingly different experience. Memories of gentle, friendly people, unusual habitats and curious wildlife will linger long after you leave, and the overriding memory will be one of an island lost in time.
