The country of Madagascar is the fourth largest Island in the world, just off the southeastern coast of Africa. Despite its large size the country only has a population of 29 million, roughly one-third that of the UK. Madagascar has been isolated from other land masses for over 135 million years and was inhabited by humans relatively recently, both of which have contributed to what makes Madagascar so unique today. 90% of the flora and fauna found in Madagascar is endemic, meaning most of the animals and plants you see here are found nowhere else in the world! Lemurs, chameleons and baobab trees are just some of the iconic wildlife found in this wonderfully diverse and beautiful country.
