Madagascar – Endemic Wildlife Photo Tour 2022
17 Oct 2022 – 27 Oct 2022
Madagascar is often referred to as the “Eighth Continent”, and its exceptional fauna and flora have evolved over millions of years of isolation. This legendary uniqueness is reflected in many of the species we may encounter on the island, from birds to snakes and frogs to chameleons. The lemurs of Madagascar are another case in point, and this fascinating group of primates will be a major focus of this tour. We certainly will not neglect the colourful frogs, chameleons and fascinating flora of this appropriately named “laboratory of evolution”, with many fascinating examples on display daily during this tour. Virtually every plant and animal on the island is endemic, but sadly, most are threatened by continued habitat destruction, thus making Madagascar one of those “must-visit-soon” destinations.
