At the crossroads of Africa and Asia, not altogether African, not quite Asian, a country at the end of the world for some, a strange island revelling in its strangeness to others, Madagascar is a country to be discovered.  Its insularity has created a world unlike anything you've seen before.

Surrounded by 5,000 km of coast, the high mountains in the North descend to desert canyons in the South and separate wide plains in the West from the tropical forests in the East.  Fauna, protected by millennia of insularity, appear to have come straight from a prehistoric time.   The people find their origins pell-mell, in Polynesia as in Bantu countries, in Indonesia as in Arabia, in Europe as in the Indian subcontinent.  This union of opposites has given rise to a particular civilisation, cemented by an age-old history.
