Everyone has their own idea of what the perfect honeymoon entails. If you’re currently looking for destinations to make your dream honeymoon come true, we recommend you consider spending your honeymoon in Madagascar. Madagascar is somewhat of a hidden gem and has so much more to offer than one could imagine. There is so much that makes Madagascar holiday packages popular for honeymooners.

 

  1. Adventure Activities in Madagascar

It will get your heart racing! Okay, your heart will already be racing with the excitement of starting your new lives together, but Madagascar is also an adventure destination. You and your partner will be presented with unique opportunities to bond while diving, snorkelling, swimming, whale watching and hiking together.

 

  1. Wildlife in Madagascar

Wildlife that will wow you! Living in South Africa, you’re probably fairly used to wildlife, but certainly not the kind of unique wildlife that Madagascar offers. You won’t be confronted with large predators, but more interesting creatures that will draw you in with their unusual looks and characters. Madagascar is well known for its Fossa, Tenrecs, Aye Aye and many more strange creatures that are bound to intrigue and delight you.

 

  1. Pristine, Unspoiled Beaches

You won’t be disturbed. That’s right, Madagascar’s beaches are secluded and remote. If you’re worried about sharing the pristine sand and crystal clear waters with crowds of tourists, don’t be. You will have the opportunity to bask in the sun and while away the hours romantically staring into each other’s eyes while catching that much-desired tropical tan. We recommend you pay a visit to the best beaches in the country which include: Nosy Be, Ile Sainte Marie, Ifaty and Fort Dauphin. Palm lined unspoiled beaches with only the view of local fisherman in their pirogues (traditional dugout canoes) are to be expected on Madagascar’s beaches.

 

  1. The Interesting Culture

The culture will intrigue you. The locals in Madagascar are ruled by their varying superstitions and traditions and things certainly get interesting when you consider the mix of African, Arab and Indian inhabitants. You will be made to feel right at home as locals have a friendly disposition and are more than happy to share the culture and lifestyle with visitors.

 

  1. No Madagascar Holiday is Complete Without Tasting Local Food

The food will tantalise your taste buds! Like everything else in Madagascar, the food will be like nothing you have ever experienced before. Seafood is a staple in the country with freshly caught oyster, crab and lobster readily available.  If you’re looking for a snack to tide you over, the locals will often offer you a helping of rice which is served with banana and seafood. The desserts are usually made up of sugary tropical fruits with vanilla. Some popular traditional dishes that we recommend you try include:

 

  • Foza sy hena-kisoa: stir fried pork and crab served with rice,

 

  • Lasopy: soup made from veal, carrots, turnips, potatoes, scallions, tomatoes and beans. It is served with crackers and bread.
