Madagascar

Madagascar Island

Madagascar country is a huge island nation, located in the Indian Ocean off the eastern coast of Africa. It is the fourth-largest island in the world.The first people arrived in Madagascar between 350 BC and 550 AD from Borneo on outrigger canoes. These Austronesian first settlers were joined around 1000 AD by Bantu migrants crossing the Mozambique Channel.Other groups such as Arabs, Indians, and Chinese continued to settle on Madagascar island over time, each one making lasting contributions to Malagasy cultural life. The Malagasy way of thinking includes a mixture of cultures, as well as their appearance and fashion style.

Madagascar’s long isolation from the neighboring continents has resulted in a unique mix of plants and animals, many found nowhere else in the world. This has led some ecologists to refer to Madagascar Island as the “eighth continent”. Of the 10,000 plants native to Madagascar Island, 90% are found nowhere else in the world.

The climate is tropical along the coast, temperate inland, and arid in the south. Madagascar has two seasons: a hot, rainy season from November to April, and a cooler, dry season from May to October

Madagascar country national parks can look like some artwork, the human landscapes are equally captivating: in the highlands, a thousand shades of green dazzle from the terraced rice fields,  and towering granite mountains, daubed by the pastel images of rows of multicolored Hauts Plateaux houses.On the east coast, golden beaches framed by huge boulders and palm trees, lapped by the bath-warm Indian Ocean and pummelled by annual tropical storms.

 



Madagascar is unlike anywhere It is fantastically beautiful, amazingly diverse for its size and still so unspoiled. Vast tracts of the Madagascar country are virtually uninhabited and seldom explored, that’s what makes it so unique and rewarding.
