About Madagascar

The most important info about Madagascar

Madagascar is a country that still seems to be completely unknown in many parts of this world. However, it is actually the fourth largest island on earth and many different characteristics make Madagascar an amazing place full of wonders. The island measures a little less than 600,000 square kilometers and is home to more than 23 million people. Madagascar is located off the east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean and more than 165 million years ago formed a common continent with many other countries that are now isolated. For many years, Madagascar lived as a French colony and has only recently become truly independent. Political unrest and instability have contributed to the fact that tourists in particular have become somewhat uncertain about traveling to Madagascar. In the meantime, however, the situation is stable again and tourism is becoming an increasingly strong economic sector on the island. Madagascar is a country that inspires with its landscapes, its people and especially with its extraordinary flora and fauna.
More than 90 percent of all animals that are at home in Madagascar cannot be discovered in any other place on this earth. They are endemic and unique. Many animals have evolved in a completely different direction on Madagascar than in other parts of the world.
