For those who love to spend their time outdoors, Madagascar is just the place. Spotting lemurs in their natural habitat, hiking through gorges, spending some time exploring deserts, and simply sitting on the beach, watching the world go by, Madagascar is the dream destination. The island is a wild world, home to 5% of all known plant and animal life on the planet. A place made for the intrepid traveller looking for an adventure, the island has numerous national parks set aside for conservation, and the most astonishing biodiversity. Great swathes of dense natural rainforest cut off some places from the rest of the country, making a holiday here feel like a real escape from it all.
