Wild landscapes, village culture, beaches – MADAGASCAR

Exotic Wildlife Tours To Madagascar – Who says science isn’t fun? The great Madagascar experiment began some 165 million years ago when it was ripped from Africa and sent floating off the newly formed Indian Ocean. Isolated, the island’s plants and animals evolved, creating thousands of dumbfounding species that Madagascar could call its very own. The remaining forests still teem with this outlandish life, and encounters with it can’t help but make you giggle with delight. The Malagasy, who are relatively recent arrivals, are equally captivating. Although fiercely patriotic, they believe family is central to life, and their startling exhumation ceremonies prove dead are just as important to them as the living. Pure fantasy? No. Unforgettable? Yes.
