What is special about nature in Madagascar?
Madagascar was cut off from the nearest continent for many millennia. There was no connection between the island and the mainland, which is why Madagascar has seen the emergence of its own unique flora and fauna. The animals and plants on the island evolved in a unique way, different from anything found elsewhere in the world. Scientists often use the term "endemic" in this context. This means that plants or animals can only be discovered in a specific place with clearly defined boundaries. For example, 80 percent of all mammals on Madagascar can only be found on the island, for reptiles the figure is as high as 95 percent, and the frogs that live on Madagascar are all endemic. For nature lovers, this means a fascinating diversity of species, an almost unbelievable spectrum of different life forms and the unique view of an animal and plant world that can be discovered or experienced nowhere else in the world.
What are the options for nature travel in Madagascar?
There are quite a few different nature parks to discover in Madagascar. These parks are inhabited by various plants and animals and there is usually a well-functioning infrastructure. In total, there are more than 40 different nature parks on Madagascar, because environmental protection is now very important on the island. The parks are divided into different categories: National Parks, Integral protected areas, private nature reserves and marine protected areas can be distinguished, for example. The national parks such as Masoala or Baie de Baly National Park were designed not only to protect the various ecosystems, but at the same time to benefit from ecotourism. Accordingly, the entrance fee to the parks is largely paid in the Nature Conservation reinvested. Exploring the large national parks in Madagascar is one way to experience this fascinating nature. Different mammals like the famous lemurs but also unique reptiles can be discovered in the national parks. Of course, if you wish, we can arrange a trip for you, where you can have a look at the different national parks and if you wish, you can also take part in guided tours. In principle, it does not matter whether you have a preference for discovering mammals, reptiles, plants or birds - based on the offers of the different national parks and nature reserves, we will put together an individual tour for you, on which you can discover all the natural beauties of Madagascar that you have always heard about.
