Madagascar holidays by Cox & Kings

As the fourth largest island on earth, home to 18 fascinating tribal cultures and five contrasting geographical regions, Madagascar’s diversity is simply stunning.

It is truly a lost world, with relics of fauna and flora dating back to the world of dinosaurs. Every creature and plant is just a little off centre and like nothing anywhere else on earth, making it a naturalist’s paradise.

The island features every kind of environment from dry desert to dense mountain forest and is home to over 70 varieties of lemur, over 120 endemic bird species and the distinctive baobab trees. It has the greatest diversity of chameleons in the world, including the world’s smallest and largest, and there are also a number of reptiles, mammals and plants waiting to be discovered on adventurous Cox & Kings holidays to Madagascar.
