TRIP DESCRIPTION

DISCOVER MADAGASCAR, THE ISLAND CONTINENT.

If we think of Madagascar, most of the population comes to mind: Baobabs, lemurs and vanilla. Madagascar is much more, a true natural paradise, with mountains and natural parks that seem to come out of a Disney movie to paradisiacal beaches. A mixture of cultures and people, being a strategic point of world trade in the past has left a rich, varied and very open culture. This trip will take you to the most emblematic places on the island with short walks and an easy level to end up relaxing on its beaches.
