When people hear the word Madagascar they normally think of the famous animated movie and lemurs. However, this fascinating island off the south-eastern coast of Africa is much more than that. It is an island paradise providing an escape from the day-t-day stresses of life. Animal Tracks provides the perfect Madagascar holiday package for your adventure.
What to Do in Madagascar
Beyond being an island paradise, Madagascar has a unique island ecology with rainforests, coral reefs, arid climates where baobabs towers and beautiful beaches – all bundled into a small island. Nosy Be is an island just off Madagascar’s coast where you will find volcanic lakes, intricate coral reefs and rum distilleries that are just waiting to be explored. Madagascar tours allow you to see and experience the wealth of scenery and ecology. Our family holiday packages include tours and expeditions to the exotic locales found on this island paradise.
- Avenue of the Baobabs
The Avenue of the Baobabs is a group of baobab trees lining the dirt road between Morondava and Belon’i Tsiribihina in the Menabe region of western Madagascar. The experience of using this road is very impressive. It’s a row of about 20 to 25 imposing Baobab trees along some 260-meter long stretch of the road and in the nearby pastures between Morondava and Belo Tsiribihina.
- Isalo National Park
Isalo National Park, often referred to as the “Jurassic Park”, is home to some of Madagascar’s most stunning scenery. Isalo’s landscape consists of eroded uniform sandstone formations dating to the Jurassic period, deep canyons with riparian forests, palm-lined oases, fire-resistant Tapia forests and open grasslands. It is arguably the best place to see ring-tailed lemurs and white sifakas dancing and jumping.
- Tsingy De Bemaraha
Tsingy De Bemaraha is one of Madagascar’s newest parks (opened in 1998). The 152 000 ha Bemaraha is best known for its tsingy sharp limestone pinnacles that may reach 45 m in height. Cut through the tsingy are canyons and gorges full of rich fauna and flora. It is home to many animal species, including 11 types of lemur, amongst them the unique Decken’s sifaka, The Red-fronted brown lemurs, and the critically endangered Madagascar fish-eagle. The Manambola river canyon which forms the southern boundary of the park is simply breath-taking and magnificent.
