Madagascar is a huge island nation off the southeast coast of Africa. It’s home to thousands of animal species, such as lemurs, found nowhere else, plus rainforests, beaches and reefs. Near the busy capital, Antananarivo, is Ambohimanga, a hillside complex of royal palaces and burial grounds, as well as the “Avenue of the Baobabs,” a dirt road lined by massive centuries-old trees.
With biodiversity to equal the Galapagos Islands, towns of pioneer grandness, lovely shorelines of brilliant sand and an astounding society impacted by Europe, Africa and the East, Madagascar’s uncommon wealth are well worth finding. Wander into national parks to encounter significant minutes in nature, relax on unspoiled islands, walk around legacy towns and spot idiosyncratic untamed life not discovered anyplace else on this planet.
