In Madagascar, the main mode of transport is by water. Whether it be by canoes or paddle boats, the adventurous travelling options gives travellers the opportunity to relax and take in the amazing view.

It is home to about 15000 plant species, and over 80% of these are endemic to the island, and are found nowhere else in the world. Orchid, Baobab, and palm tree lovers will have a field day looking at the various species on the island. As with the flora, Madagascar's fauna is exploding with indigenous wildlife.
