The 4th largest island in the world, which lies 250 miles off the southeast coast of Africa, Madagascar is a truly enchanted place. Located in some of the remotest waters in the world, 75% of Madagascar’s animals are found nowhere else on Earth. With a diverse array of landscapes, from the mountains of the interior, to the tropical rainforests that skirt the Indian Ocean to the east, if you love nature, you’ll love Madagascar.
Anyone who makes the journey to Madagascar wants to see rainforest, waterfalls and of course, the lemurs. A great place to observe them in their natural habitat is Amber Mountain National Forest. The Avenue of the Baobab’s is the place to go to see the instantly recognizable trees, one of 80% of flora species also only found here. For SCUBA divers, Nosy Be is one of the best dive sites in the world. Enter the silent world of Manta Rays, Whale Sharks and sea turtles for a chance to commune with these awe-inspiring animals.
With so many things to do, you don’t want to miss any of the myriad photo ops that Madagascar is famous for. So to make sure you’re getting the most out of your expedition to the island, hire a local professional photographer.
