The Island of a thousand facets: in the East, an exuberant tropical forest source of life; on its highlands, the serenity of its rice fields; rather to the west, the mystery of its karst peaks of Tsingy; head to the north, perfumed paradisiac islands of Ylang-ylang; all along its coast, the simplicity of its villages of sinners and wherever you go, the Malagasy welcome you with a smile and great kindness.
A jewel of nature: the Big Island is a real "hotspot" of biodiversity.
A very singular richness, all the lemurs are endemic, the majority of the birds do not exist anywhere other than Madagascar ... 90% of the plants on the Island are unique: citing only the baobabs and the orchids.
An authentic destination: Its population is a complex mosaic unified around a genuinely Malagasy value system. And his culture is as original as it is engaging.
