Explore one of the most precious, untouched island gems of the Indian Ocean with an acclaimed safari guide on this once-in-a-lifetime journey.
What to Expect
Just off the southeastern coast of Africa, Madagascar is home to diverse ecosystems—including lush tropical rainforests, baobab groves and vibrant coral reefs—that support the world’s greatest concentration of unique species: over 90 percent of the biodiversity in Madagascar is found nowhere else on Earth. Famous for its lively, adorable lemurs, the island is also occupied by other fascinating inhabitants like chameleons and flying foxes—and new species are constantly being discovered. Many of these creatures are critically endangered, making Madagascar the only and, perhaps, last place to see them in the wild. This precious island is one of the few remaining frontiers for developing life on Earth—and as the environment is increasingly threatened, we believe that travel to places like Madagascar can perform a meaningful role in their survival.
