A rare gem glistening in the Indian Ocean just off the southeast coast of Africa, Madagascar is a dazzling yacht charter destination blessed with a spectacular coastline, tantalizing turquoise waters, and colorful reef systems teeming with marine life. The fourth largest island in the world, this oasis of exotic beauty also entices with its vast array of remarkable flora and fauna and diverse landscapes which range from tropical beaches and coastal rainforests to deserts and savannas.
Perfect for the most adventurous of world travelers and savviest of nature enthusiasts, Madagascar offers the extraordinary opportunity to see the planet’s most beautiful creatures in their natural habitats. Perhaps the biggest draw are the lemurs of which there are over 70 varieties including the red-bellied, the ring-tailed, the crowned, and the black and white ruffed.
Most of Madagascar’s unique biodiversity cannot be found anywhere else on the planet, with approximately seventy-five percent of its species being unique to the island archipelago. Home to about half the world’s species of chameleons, it is a treat to set your eyes upon this intriguing type of reptile which characteristically changes colors in response to its mood and temperature.
