Madagascar is a country located on the island of the same name in the Indian Ocean, near the southeastern part of the African continent. Because of its size, it's the fourth biggest island on Earth, and it remains largely untouched by the tourist trade in many places around there. Being isolated from the African mainland for so long, the country has evolved to hold many unique species of both plants and animals. For example, you won't find Lemurs anywhere else on our planet, but here in Madagascar, you can find more than 20 different kinds of these amazing animals. It is a land of a tropical climate and full of rainforests, but still a wonderful place for hiking, trekking, and safari jeep tours in some places. There are also a lot of amazing and protected nature areas and national parks worth visiting, which contain incredible, unique landscapes, ecosystems, and villages. Also, if you're looking for some beautiful beaches, then you should consider visiting Morondava, Anakao, or the offshore part of Nosy Ve island. All of these are the right places for some snorkeling.
