What Makes Madagascar a Great Honeymoon Destination?

Madagascar is situated in the Indian Ocean off the southeast coast of Africa and is a fantastic destination for a honeymoon for adventurous couples looking for something a little different. From the weird and wonderful endemic wildlife to a stunning coastline and tiny islands, there is plenty to see and explore.

What to Expect from a Madagascar Honeymoon Safari

With a blend of cultures from European to African and Asian to Arabic, a Madagascar honeymoon offers something unique and original.

If you are after some of the best beaches in the world, the island won't disappoint. The 5,000km (3,100 miles) of Indian Ocean coastline offers plenty of white-sand bays lapped by turquoise water. There is plenty of marine life that can be seen snorkelling directly off the beach.

The beauty of Madagascar is that there is so much to do and see. The National Parks offer the opportunity to hike and seek out unusual wildlife as you explore pristine forests home to over 100 species of lemur. Diverse landscapes are home to colourful chameleons, rare orchids, and towering baobab trees offering a unique blend of nature and adventure.

Best Time to go to Madagascar on Honeymoon?

Anytime between April and December is a great time to travel, with the latter months getting warmer.

For those with a summer wedding, you are in luck as July and August are two of the best months for travel.

July marks the beginning of the high season as it is cooler with little rainfall. This means trekking the naturally humid rainforests can be refreshing and airy. The rainforests are alive with unique flora and fauna, with loads of different lemurs and other animals active. July is the first official month of whale watching season in Ile Sainte Marie and the incredible humpback whales can often be seen in substantial groups.
