Combine the thrills of an African safari with a carefree castaway escape on the pristine beaches of Madagascar, enjoying snorkelling, diving and sailing in warm turquoise waters that teem with colourful marine life. Unspoilt and uncrowded, Madagascar is the land of the ‘blue safari’ – a paradise playground with an abundance of exotic marine life that crowds the colourful coral reefs. Unwind on sugar sand beaches that provide the perfect counterbalance to dusty safari adventures, the sand lapped by waters that are popular for whale watching, scuba diving and snorkelling. Charter a sleek yacht or board an ancient dhow to drift along the picturesque coastlines of private islands, such as the idyllic Nosy Ankao. Beyond the paradisiacal beaches, Madagascar is an island of remarkable contrasts, with the likes of verdant rainforests, volcanic mountains and vast deserts gracing the land.
April to December tends to be dry with comfortable temperatures; from January until March there is a high chance of rain.
