Madagascar is officially known as the Republic of Madagascar. This country is an island country in the Indian Ocean and is located in the coast of Southeast Africa. The nation comprises the island of Madagascar which is the fourth-largest island in the world, as well as numerous smaller islands near this place. A long time ago Madagascar was part of India but this place split from India around 85 million years ago, allowing plants to evolve and native animals in relative isolation. Madagascar is a very biodiversity hotspot . Over 90 % of its wildlife is found nowhere else in different places in the world
• Almost all of the plant and animal species found on the Madagascar Island are unique to this island. • Madagascar has two seasons, a dry cooler season which starts in May and last until October and a hot rainy season which starts in November and last until April.
• The capital of this island is Antananarivo. This city is also the Madagascar’s most populated city.
• The population of Madagascar : 21,290,000. • Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in Africa. The people in this territory face many problems including poor health care, a poor educational system, economic problems and malnutrition.
• Most of the population or better to say 52% maintain their indigenous religious beliefs, other 41% are Christian and 7% are Islam.
• Madagascar has two official languages, first is French and second Malagasy.
• Madagascar Island was under French rule from 1895-1957.

Madagascar is your unique experience no doubt. Many animals and plants that are in abundance in Madagascar can only be found on this island and nowhere else in the world. Imagine that! The rare flora and fauna and exceptional landscapes make this a destination worth visiting.
You can go from desert to tropical rainforest within 300km. Those that seek beauty, unique experiences and adventure are well suited for a visit on this island. To get the full Madagascar experience you would need a great combination of off road driving, national park adventures and a few days on the islands shores.
This island is the fourth largest in the world. Neighboring islands are Reunion, Mauritius, Comoros and Mayotte. The nearest mainland state being Mozambique.
Weather: Hot rainy seasons from November until April with frequent cyclones. May until October is the cooler dry season.
Cuisine: Malagasy cuisine reflects influences of Africa, China, India, Europe and Southeast Asia. Typical meals are based with rice and accompanied by loaka which comes in various varieties such as vegetarian or meat and typically are topped with a flavored sauce with ginger, onion, garlic, tomato, salt, curry powder or vanilla.
Communication: Malagasy people communicate indirectly. Communicating in a direct way is considered impolite and having a bad attitude. Communicating indirectly is their way of keeping harmony and peace.
In terms of language, French is widely spoken and of course Malagasy is spoken by 98% of the population. Having a basic knowledge of French will help you when visiting Madagascar.
Wildlife: Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot with over 90% of the wildlife found nowhere else in the world. Due to its isolation of neighboring continents, this country is the habitat for many flora and fauna not found anywhere else on the earth.

Essence of Madagascar , We have explored every corner of the island to concoct the best trips for our partners. We keep on discovering the best areas and places so that our offer of trips will be the most complete to offer a unique incentive program for your clients.
Some 80 million years ago Madagascar decided to break away from Africa. It has been going its own way ever since and the result is a destination quite unlike anywhere else on the planet The first time you come face-to-face with a ring-tailed lemur you will be bewitched. Is it a strange prehistoric cat, a tree-living dog or a primitive monkey? Look into its eyes and you may understand why the name lemur is derived from the Latin for ‘spirits of the dead’.
There are 23 different species of lemur on Madagascar, and they are not alone. There are 70 different species of bird – the island is a twitcher’s paradise – not to mention two thirds of the world’s species of chameleon and over 150,000 endemic species of flora.
If you ask Essence of Madagascar to create you a tailor-made Incentive or holiday trip to Madagascar you can expect to explore wildlife reserves with fossilised forests. Expect Jurassic landscapes. Expect fantastical rock formations. Expect to find an ancient culture that includes sculpted totems and richly decorated tombs devoted to the Malagasy ‘Cult of Ancestors’.
On Madagascar, expect to step outside the world of luxury holiday hotels, and into the unexpected. But visiting Madagascar also implies meeting its people, understanding its culture and tradition....It’s even the spirit of Madagascar to make your travel a high success for your clients.
