In Madagascar, you’ll find species you can’t find anywhere else in the world. Search the rich rainforests of Masoala National Park for lemurs, lizards, and colorful frogs. Discover hidden tombs in the undergrowth of Ifotaka’s sacred forest. Apart from exciting cultures and rare species, Madagascar is ideal for beach retreats.
