Lemurs, baobabs, rainforest, desert, hiking and diving: Madagascar is a dream destination for outdoors enthusiasts – half the fun is getting to all these incredible attractions as the country’s tourist infrastructure is somewhat sketchy. Madagascar  is a one-of-a-kind destination—the off-road driving is phenomenal, there are national parks that only see a few hundred visitors a year, and resorts so remote you’ll need a private plane or boat to get there. There are more activities than you'll have time for: hiking, diving, mountain biking, kitesurfing, rock-climbing, you name it. Plus, there are plenty of natural pools, beaches and hammocks on which to recover, too. Ever since you were a kid and played Risk, you know you’ve wanted to visit Madagascar!
