Madagascar is an island country in the Indian Ocean, located just off the coast of Africa. Famous for its iconic trees and lemurs, traveling to Madagascar is full of exciting things to do in nature. Getting around in Madagascar may have its challenges, but exploring this island will be a rewarding experience no matter what.

Spot the baobab trees around the country that can grow really tall and live nearly a thousand years. These picturesque trees are native to Madagascar and the Avenue of the Baobab is the best place to see them where they lined up on a road.

Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park in Madagascar is an incredible park to see some of the most interesting natural landscapes in the world. Isalo National Park is another amazing park in the country that should be visited for its gorges and canyons.

While Nosy Be is the place for relaxing at white sand beaches and enjoying beach parties, Sainte Marie offers a more local experience and has cheaper options. Although the beaches here aren’t as good as Nosy Be, you can still find a beautiful beach down in the south and have a quiet time.

Madagascar is the best place to see the cute furry creatures called lemurs in their natural habitat. You should explore Lemur Island as it’s filled with four different species of lemurs, such as ring-tailed, black and white, and bamboo lemurs. Ranomafana National Park is also great for spotting lemurs along with giraffe weevils.

Madagascar’s capital Antananarivo deserves a few days to be explored. It may be busy here but the city is quite charming and full of colors. Make sure to visit Rova of Antananarivo, indulge in all kinds of delicious food, and go shopping at local markets.

If you are travel to Madagascar between June and November, don’t miss the whale-watching season to witness humpback whales migrate.
