Madagascar’s tourist attractions include its beaches and biodiversity. The island’s endemic wildlife and forests are unique tourist attractions which contribute to the development of the country.

Madagascar has been isolated from the African landmass for approximately 165 million years and its flora and fauna evolved in isolation from that time onwards. The island is one of the world’s most biologically diverse areas, with many endemic species.

More than half of the island’s breeding birds are endemic; other endemic species include the Red-bellied Lemur, the Indri, and the Aye-aye. It is internationally renowned as a wildlife tourism and ecotourism destination, focusing on lemurs, birds, and orchids.
