Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world, and it is not just a place where you can go to ‘move it! Move it!’ It is true that it has the largest population of lemurs, but ecologists have considered calling the island the eighth continent. The reason is simple. 90% of the island’s fauna and flora cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Unfortunately, most of it is destroyed by the human population, and most species of lemurs are considered endangered. Hopefully, people will be more careful in the future.

Before getting into what makes Madagascar worthy of a visit, we should probably talk about visas. Fortunately, the country’s visa policy is nothing but lenient. Apart from the citizens of Palestine, all nationalities can enter Madagascar on an electronic visa on a visa on arrival. iVisa can help you get the former. All you have to do is fill in an application and pay a service fee. Once you arrive in Madagascar, you need to pay a fee depending on the validity of the visa. You can choose for a 30-day stay, a 60-day, or a 90-day stay. The price goes higher with the period of validity.

The climate in Madagascar is tropical but only along the coastline. The further you go inland, the more temperate the weather gets. The best time to visit the island is may through October. That is when the season is dry. You do not want to be there when a cyclone hits in the rainy season.

One of the most fascinating things you will definitely want to see when you travel to Madagascar is the Tsingy de Bemaraha. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and it is the largest reserve in Madagascar. The location is also known as the Labyrinth of Stone, and the plateau consists of raised limestone. However, the stones are covered with razor-sharp pinnacles. The forest around houses the brown lemur, and the bird life is astonishing. Bird watchers will have the time of their life there. The flora is nothing but breathtaking with orchids, aloes, and baobabs growing everywhere. Taking a walk or even a drive among the enormous baobabs will give you an unbelievable feeling.

Tsingy de Ankarana is similar to Tsingy of Bemaraha, only smaller. It is easier to access, and you can spot three different species of lemurs there. Plus, you get the chance to see some lovely chameleons.

Going back to baobabs, the Avenue of Baobabs can be found on Madagascar’s west coast, 45 minutes from Morondava. It is up for consideration as the 7th wonder of Africa. There are more than a dozen trees there. They are over 30 meters high, and some of them are more than 800 years old. At sunset, you can capture the best photos. You cannot leave Madagascar without catching that sight.

As to what you can do in Madagascar, you can take your pick. Kite and windsurfing are available in multiple locations, so you can have some fun doing that. You can go kayaking as well, but we recommend that you take a tour guide in case you are a beginner. The Ile Saint Marie offers the best experience for novices since the water is calm and clear. Even if you have no experience at all, you will still have a lovely time.

The wildlife tour is one of the most popular activities in Madagascar. As mentioned throughout the article, you can spot many species of lemurs, but you can also see tortoises, the lovely, tiny geckos, chameleons, and some unusual flora. It can be a bit challenging because Madagascar does not have a proper infrastructure, but you will manage.

If you are interested, you can go deep sea fishing as well. It is true that the experience is a bit luxurious because you get away from the overfished waters and head to Radamas or Mitsio islands, where the fish thrive in peace. You can catch Kingfish, Saltfish, Wahoos, and even King Mackerel.

Some people choose to go to Madagascar to volunteer. There are many worthy causes like preserving the lemurs. As mentioned above, they are incredibly endangered. There are even special visas for volunteers. It is incredibly nice because you can give back to nature while enjoying yourself.

The official language in Madagascar is Malagasy and French. The island has different dialects, and it will be highly appreciated if you learn a few phrases. Your best shot is to speak French, but English can be useful in touristy locations and government institutions. Even so, we recommend that you learn some basic French before you leave for Madagascar. It will prove to be most useful.

When it comes to food, you should not expect anything special. The local cuisine is tasty, but nothing out of the ordinary. The meals often contain rice and meat, and the best part is that they do not cost much at all. Especially when you eat at market places. You should know that street food is safe to eat. You will most likely enjoy rice cakes, which are incredibly tasty and available everywhere. They are basically bread. The coffee, on the other hand, is delicious. It is ordinarily hand-made and served with condensed milk. Keep in mind that it is very sweet.

It is advised to stay away from tap water. You can find cheap bottled water almost everywhere. You can also find the popular sodas (Cola, Fanta, etc.) However, you will notice that restaurants serve rice water.

One thing you should probably know is that when you visit remote villages, you need to take some chlorine tablets. They will make the local water drinkable.

As far as safety is concerned, Madagascar is a relatively safe country to be in. However, you need to follow a few simple rules. Do not give money to beggars, do not show signs of wealth, and keep your pockets well taken care of. It is best if you do not carry large bills, and you should mind stray dogs. If you provoke them, you can be severely hurt. And the medical system in Madagascar is not the best. Other than that, use common sense, and you should have a pleasant experience.

All in all, Madagascar is definitely worth a visit. Flora and fauna alone make for compelling reasons for a trip. The people are nice as long as you respect their customs, and you will be made to feel welcome. You can take a lot of tours, see a lot of breathtaking sights, and capture some of the most amazing photos. You will have a lot of fun too if you know where to look. Needless to say, Madagascar should be on your bucket list.
