Madagascar Tourism

The fourth largest island in the world was created more than 125 million years ago when a piece of the African mainland broke away and drifted into the Indian Ocean. Isolated from mainland, this tropical Eden known as Madagascar, evolved into a safe haven for some of the most unusual life forms on earth - a zoologist’s dream island teeming with chameleons, mongoose and lemurs and an apothecary’s laboratory with precious medicinal plants and herbs.

Relatively undiscovered till a few decades ago by the inveterate traveller, the ‘Great Red Island’ of Madagascar has seen an increase in tourist traffic with travellers discovering and appreciating the unique delight of virgin rainforests, pristine beaches, warm blue waters of the Indian Ocean, sandy deserts and an astonishing array of unusual wildlife and truly impressive flora.

Don’t be surprised to spot a chameleon or chameleons in Madagascar- smallest to largest as the islands are home to almost half of the world’s chameleon species!

Madagascar is also known as the Red Islands due to the red color soil.
