What to do:
Madagascar is a dream destination for outdoor activity lovers. Venture into national parks, go on a safari, explore one of the idyllic offshore islands, stroll through heritage towns or spot unique wildlife not found anywhere else on this earth.
Visit the Royal Hill of Ambohimanga, a historical village that was once home to Madagascar royalty. Take a spectacular trek in a moonlike landscape or through the rainforest.
Madagascar has the third largest coral reef system in the world, the Toliara coral reef, off the south-western coast. The reef is a natural barrier to rough sea waters, creating coastal waters that are ideal for swimming, diving and fishing. The still, clear waters of Nosy Boraha (Île Sainte Marie) make ideal spots for snorkelling. Migrating humpback whales visit the east coast waters between the months of July and September. Explore the coastline of beautiful Sainte Marie in a kayak. Go deep sea fishing in the Radamas or Mitsio islands. Between April and November the Emerald Sea (Mer d’Emeraude), one of the most beautiful and largest natural bays in the world, is one of the best surfing spots in the southern hemisphere. Come and see Madagascar`s annual cheese diving competition when people from around the world dive into a coral reef to retrieve a block of cheese.
