Tour description provided by Viator

Known as the "Red Island" Madagascar is the fourth largest island on Earth known for its abundance of endemic wildlife. From large mountainous regions quickly transitioning to lush, verdant rainforests, down to its pristine turquoise waters, Madagascar is an absolute paradise. The island is most famous, however, for its cute little creatures, native to the island, Lemurs. There are several species of lemurs on the island that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. In addition to these precious little animals, Baobob, trees that are hundreds of years old also draw an incredible number of visitors each year. Over the course of 20 days, you have a chance to experience all of the above and much more. The tour takes you to different villages and cities allowing for some quality local interaction and a chance to experience the most spectacular examples of nature.
