Enjoy a Luxury Safari in Madagascar
Madagascar is home to some of the best luxury safari vacations in Africa. Often referred to as The 8th Continent, Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world and is most famous for its rare wildlife and magnificent scenery. It is also the only place on earth where lemurs inhabit the wild. The country has its own unique landscapes made up of rainforests, deserts, mountains and cities, not to mention the beautiful Indian Ocean beaches. As the tourism infrastructure is not as developed as other African countries, travelers can expect an authentic luxury safari adventure discovering all of its famous sights and a few hidden gems too! The accommodation is luxurious with all the amenities of a five star hotel and you can expect to dine in style with tasty dishes served around the clock. Madagascar is the perfect choice if you’re looking for an alternative African safari experience.
Most people know of Madagascar due to the children’s animation film or they associate it with the wonderful creatures that are lemurs. There are over 30 lemur species here and each one varies in size, colour and appearance. They live in families of up to 15 members mainly consisting of males and females and then their little ones. You will see a large variety of lemurs throughout your luxury safari in Madagascar, whether you are looking to spot more of the well-known species such as the ring-tailed lemur, or something a little stranger, like the Aye Aye. The Aye Aye is the world’s largest nocturnal primate and is one of the uglier lemur species! They are actually considered to be bad omens by many locals! Aside from the lemurs, you’ll also get to spot some spectacular bird species, reptiles and amphibians on your luxury safari.
