Separated from Africa by the Mozambique Channel, Madagascar is a paradise for nature lovers. From Diego-Suarez to Fort-Dauphin, the unique flora and fauna make this a truly extraordinary island: lemurs, legendary alleys of baobabs, the red earth on the high plateaux, turquoise waters and fine sandy beaches. These varied landscapes are complemented by an equally diverse population, from some twenty different ethnic groups, who make Madagascar a fascinating mosaic of cultures and customs.
Along the Mozambique Channel, this natural Garden of Eden is home to unique species of lemur, birds of paradise, chameleons and so on, not to mention the huge variety of plant life and the splendid sea beds (especially Tinsgy where there are remains of ancient coral reefs).
