Madagascar's forests are a shimmering, seething mass of stems and dripping leaves and slithering, jumping, quirky creatures that include lemurs, periwinkles, baobabs, aloes, geckoes, sifakas and octopus trees. Madagascar's teeming fertile forests and geographical isolation have served to preserve and propagate 'nature's design laboratory' in a mix found nowhere else on earth. You needn't totally forget about notions of idyllic tropical islands, but there's more to do here than lazing on a sandy beach and dipping into crystalline waters to peek at coral reefs now and again. Cut off from the African mainland for millions of years, Madagascar's forests are a naturalist's damp dream. With fascinating tribal cultures and ceremonies and an intriguing assortment of local taboos thrown in to perplex visitors, Madagascar makes for a truly rewarding holiday experience.
