A country surrounded by the waters of the Indian Ocean and blessed with a wide variety of endemic species that cannot be found anywhere else in the world, Madagascar is an alluring destination. Sometimes considered the “eighth continent” – thanks to the uniqueness of its geology, fauna and flora – its natural beauty is complemented by its fascinating local culture, which promises to bewitch visitors with inventive aromas, colors and flavors.

One of the main destinations in the country, the Andasibe-Mantadia National Park will take you to face-to-face encounters with various species of lemurs, including the largest, the Indri. Its lush forests have 100 species of orchids that bloom between September and January.
Tsingy de Bemarah National Park
Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Tsingy de Bemarah National Park has its landscape dominated by two karst plateaus: Great Tsingy and Little Tsingy. What makes this place so unique it is its unusual rocks that began to form some 200 million years ago. In addition, it combines an incredible variety of habitats, including savannas, lakes and mangroves.
Avenue of the Baobabs
Avenue of the Baobabs, is one of the most photogenic places in Madagascar, especially at sunset. It is a dirt road between Morondava and Belon’i Tsiribihina, surrounded by baobabs over 30 meters! Some say that the baobab brings good luck to couples, which may explain why this is one of the most visited places in the country.
