Madagascar is a dream destination for nature and outdoor lovers — and half the fun is getting to all these incredible attractions. Those who relish an adventure will come into their own: the off-road driving is one of a kind, and there are national parks that only see 100 visitors a year, regions that live in autarchy during the rainy season, and resorts so remote you’ll need a private plane or boat to get there. Then, there’s the sea! With over 3,000 miles of coastline, nearly 300 miles of barrier reef and 250 islands, no stay in Madagascar would be complete without a few days on the island’s shores. Divers will revel in the choice of sites, from underwater ‘cathedrals’ to shipwrecks, and snorkelers will be awed by the sheer grace of turtles and marvel at the rainbow of colors displayed by corals and fish. For those keen to keep their heads above water, the idyllic beaches, sailing, dugout canoe trips, and whale-watching will prove hard to resist.
