MADAGASCAR QUICK FACTS

THE COUNTRY:

 

Madagascar is officially known as the Republic of Madagascar. This country is a huge island country in the Indian Ocean and is located in the coast of Southeast Africa. The nation comprises the island of Madagascar which is the fourth-largest island in the world, as well as numerous smaller islands near this place. A long time ago Madagascar was part of India but this place split from India around 85 million years ago, allowing plants to evolve and native animals in relative isolation.

 

Madagascar is a very biodiversity hotspot . Over 90 % of its wildlife is found nowhere else in different places in the world. 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.

 

The island country of Madagascar is a truly unique part of Africa, where the normal rules don’t seem to apply. Many of its people look more Asian than African. GVA Travel Solutions offers tailor made independent travelers and small group tours that open your eyes to the best of this incredible country.
