Welcome to a world of exciting and turbulent history, where a fascinating mix of cultures come together. Retrace the footsteps of great explorers, get lost in the heady scents of colourful and eclectic markets and explore ancient citadels. The islands of the Indian Ocean are everything you expect them to be, and more. Picture perfect island scenery, while below the surface you’ll be awed by the crystal clear waters and vibrant marine life. Madagascar is totally unique.
