About this book

This is the only concise guide to Madagascar's highlights. Madagascar has been a specialist wildlife destination for decades, but mainstream tourism is now on the up with a range of boutique hotels to entice travelers to this naturalist's Promised Land. This beautifully photographed guide caters for all short-stay visitors bringing you the 'don't miss' highlights of the country. Detailed maps include the six places most favored by tour operators, and a birders' map identifies key locations to spot birds. A chapter on conservation discusses the island's projects and outlines how you can help.
