Madagascar – a kaleidoscope of nature


Rainforests of long-limbed succulents house leaping lemurs, while stout baobabs sport trunks branded with trippy red-and-yellow swirls. Elsewhere, powder-white sands collide with cyan waters, hiding barrier reefs. This kaleidoscope of nature forms the fabric of Madagascar.

With 250 islands, 450km of barrier reef, and around 5000km of coastline, the tropical island’s shores prove hard to resist. Divers are spoiled for choice of sites – from underwater cathedrals to rusted shipwrecks – and share the deep waters with rays, whale sharks, and reef sharks. Snorkel among curious fish, colourful coral, and graceful turtles. Those keen to keep their heads above water can watch the humpback whales breach, join a local fisher on a pirogue trip, or simply recline in their hammock.

Isalo National Park covers 81,500ha of Jurassic sandstone massif and is home to ringtail, brown, and sifaka lemurs, as well as sacred Bara burial sites. Delve into the island’s history, from the pirate cemetery strewn with palms, to the 12 sacred hills of Antananarivo. Madagascar is a cultural melting pot of intricate beliefs and rituals in reverence of ancestors, and full of ethnic spices and exotic cuisines
