Madagascar is home to an abundance of endemic wildlife, verdant jungles and pristine beaches. Its diversity of landscape supports an abundance of unique species including 7 varieties of baobabs, 19,000 plant species and a fauna of more than 100,000 species, the most famous of which is the lemur. Sadly, nearly a third of lemur species are critically endangered and nearly all are threatened with extinction. This makes lemurs the earth’s most at-risk group of mammals. Madagascar's breathtaking archipelago of islands with its pristine beaches, coral reefs, nature reserves is a magical destination well worth exploring.
