Your Madagascar Vacation

A glimpse of Madagascar


Welcome to Red Island! The "eighth continent," the "Red Island" and the "island of the lemurs" - Madagascar, situated off the east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean, has many names. The fourth-largest island in the world is home to more than a hundred thousand species of plants and animals, such as lemurs, which cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. Inland, the island fascinates with rainforests, deserts, and mountainous regions; on the coast, you'll find mangrove forests and palm trees. Culturally, Madagascar is just as diverse: The tropical paradise houses a population of 25 million people from 18 different ethnic groups.

Let yourself be enchanted by traditional music during a round trip to the capital Antananarivo and discover Ambohimanga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once forbidden to strangers, the city's the island's most important sacred hill, boasting palaces and the Baobab Avenue - a street lined with centuries-old baobabs.
