Things to see in Madagascar

The fauna and flora

In Madagascar, the nature is rich and unique. The island, detached from the African continent some 120 million years ago, has kept species which have become extinct elsewhere thanks to its insularity. Today, however, a number of them have become endangered.

Arts and culture

In Madagascar, you will learn that the gap between art and handicraft is not that wide. The Madagascans are talented in many domains including music, literature, drama, and dancing. They can do anything with their hands. Here, you will find works of art in the galleries of Antananarivo or in the markets; handmade crafts intricate and beautiful, and can be found widely at affordable prices.
