You cannot miss the capital Antananarivo and the bizarre limestone plateau at Ankarana.

Co-authors Daniel Austin and Hilary Bradt have guided mesmerised visitors on more than 30 trips to Madagascar and their personal anecdotes and unparalleled knowledge, combined with input from around 50 experts, make this the most informative and indispensable guide on the market. Madagascar is big. It’s 226,917 square miles to be precise, making it the fourth largest island on the planet (and bigger than Spain, Thailand, Sweden and Germany). The UK is a rather puny 93,410 square miles in comparison. It is diverse in both its wildlife as well as the distinct geographical areas. You must absolutely visist Boab Alley for its tall avenues of Baob trees as well as see some of the unique wildlife including the tenrec and sifaka.
