Madagascar is an island in the Indian Ocean off the eastern coast of southern Africa, east of Mozambique. It is the fourth largest island in the world. The highest point is Maromokotro, in the Tsaratanana Massif region in the north of the island, at 2,876 metres. It has been the inspiration for many documentaries and movies and is one of the most interesting and intriguing places on Earth. Most of Madagascar’s wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth, this is due to the isolation of the country. In Madagascar the locals are kind and friendly, you will receive a warm welcome, despite the country not being one of wealth, the people are proud, and are proud of what they have.
