Do not expect big predators in Madagascar but be prepared for unusual encounters in the dry and deciduous forests. While trekking with a local guide, you will have good opportunities to observe multiple species of lemurs, chameleons and amphibians. It is also a true paradise for ornithologists with magnificent birds. In the centre of the island, you will find two different rain forests: Andasibe and Ranomafana. In the south of the island, canyons for trekking and sandstone formations form the Isalo National Park. The West is known for its famous Tsingyof Bemeharaand Baobab Alley. Up North, magnificent white sand beaches will welcome divers, snorkelers and swimmers.
