Madagascar is a huge island nation off the southeast coast of Africa about 400km off the coast of Mozambique.  The island is recognized as one of the world's top ten hotspots for biodiversity and it’s the world’s 4th largest island. Madagascar is inhabited by various ethnic groups of Malayo-Indonesian, mixed African and Malayo-Indonesian, and Arab ancestry.

Madagascar's plant and animal species are extraordinary (over 80% exist nowhere else), so visitors shouldn't miss seeing the Lemurs, Tortoise, Geckos, Chameleons and unusual flora not forgetting rainforests, beaches and reefs.

Capital and largest city is Antananarivo , in the city hillside you can find complex of royal palaces and burial grounds.

There are nine species of bao-bao trees in the world seven of them are found in Madagascar, this is visible at the island’s “Avenue of the Baobabs,” a dirt road lined by massive centuries-old trees.
