Madagascar is not so much an island as a mini-continent. There are six microclimates, which foster an exceptional diversity of landscapes, flora, and fauna. Just about every species on the island is found nowhere else on the earth. The large number of rare species on the island is due to the separation of the island from the mainland about 165 million years ago and the recent arrival of man which is estimated at only 2000 years ago.

If you are looking for an unusual holiday, a yacht charter to Madagascar will not disappoint. You can be sure that your neighbors have not been there and done that.
Madagascar is not so much an island as a mini-continent. There are six microclimates, which foster an exceptional diversity of landscapes, flora, and fauna. Just about every species on the island is found nowhere else on the earth. The large number of rare species on the island is due to the separation of the island from the mainland about 165 million years ago and the recent arrival of man which is estimated at only 2000 years ago. Singing indris, dancing sifakas, spiny forests, baobabs, wild roses and trumpet lilies, neon colored frogs, and an array of animals that use their bodies as a canvas for an ever-changing palette of colors.
This is the way you would be drawn to Madagascar. A yacht charter will give you access to all that plus calm turquoise waters, perfect for diving and snorkeling. The waters of Madagascar shelter an exceptional marine environment with remarkable varieties of coral and rainbow-colored fish. 

Madagascar lies 400km off the east coast of Africa and is the fourth largest island in the world. The population is sparse and Afro-Indonesian in origin. There are around 18 different tribes, descendants of the Indians, Africans, Arabs, Chinese, and Indonesians. Despite its close proximity to the coast of Mozambique, the people do not have much in common with Africa. Although the official language is Malagasy, French is the language of business.

Nosy Be

Yacht charters are concentrated on the volcanic island of Nosy Be. Located to the North-West of Madagascar, Nosy Be is the biggest and most populated of the Malagasy islands. The most beautiful beaches of Madagascar are found here, shaded by coconut trees and washed by calm turquoise waters. Nosy Be will intrigue the most demanding divers with its multiple varieties of corals and multi-colored fish. Also reputed for its fragrances, Nosy Be is nicknamed "The Fragrant Island". Numerous crops of ylang-ylang, coffee, sugar cane, and peppers are grown abundantly and their scent fills the air.

The Mitsios Archipelago

 The Mitsios is an archipelago located just north of Nosy Be. Here you will find warm, crystal-clear turquoise waters, deserted anchorages, and isolated villages. The Mitsios is particularly rewarding for tropical fish lovers and attracts divers from all over the world. The sea is teeming with fish and shellfish and lush, dense vegetation. The white beaches of these islands are made of fine bits of shells and coral. The archipelago is also defined by its interesting rock formations: Cannes d'Orgues (Organ Canes), a black, octagon shaped, basalt rock face and the Four Brothers, a group of rocks that stand out of the sea.

The Radames Archipelago

The archipelago of the Radames is composed of four coral islands: Nosy Kalakajoro, Nosy Ovy, Nosy Antany Mora and Nosy Valiha. Like the Mitsios, the underwater world is absolutely fascinating for diving and snorkeling. This archipelago has lush tropical vegetation and deserted beaches. The few fishermen villages are known for their friendliness. They offer an opportunity to encounter a totally different way of life that has been untouched by time. The name people gave to their islands is very revealing: Nosy Kalakajoro means "the place where lives the joy" and Nosy Antany Mora means "the land where live the quiet people".

Madagascar has a tropical climate. The temperature is pleasant all year round for yacht charter except during the summer, and from December to February when an unpleasant humidity sets during the day and heavy rains during the night.
