The remote island country of Madagascar is home to spectacular biodiversity—many of the plant and animal species that live there can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. Clearly a dream destination for nature lovers and adventurers, a trip to Madagascar doesn’t come cheap or easy. The roads on the island are in poor shape, so you’d better embrace off-road driving or be prepared to hire a boat.
