“He could tell by the way the animals walked that they were keeping time to some kind of music. Maybe it was the song in their own hearts that they walked to.” - Laura Adams Armer
Evolution has occurred more or less in isolation on this remote island, located 400 kilometres off Africa’s east coast, with the result that much of its indigenous wildlife is found nowhere else on earth.
Madagascar’s menagerie of weird and wonderful creatures includes the world’s biggest and smallest chameleons and over 70 species of lemurs, long-tailed primates endemic to the island.
The Madagascan landscape is no less compelling than the resident wildlife, with terrain ranging from lush jungles and palm-fringed beaches to knife-edged karst tsingys of the Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park’s ‘stone forests’. Madagascar is an otherworldly paradise where visitors are offered a unique glimpse into a fantastical, one-of-a-kind world.
