Lonely Planet magazine ranked Madagascar among the world’s 10 best travel destinations in 2019.
Madagascar is the world’s fourth largest island at the south-eastern coast of the African continent.
Primarily, it is popular because of its natural beauty.
Since 1990, Tsingy Bemaraha nature conservation area is a natural World Heritage Site.
In 2007 six national parks were declared a World Heritage Site under the collective name Atsinanana rainforest.
These are Marojejy, Masoala, Ranomafana, Zahamena, Andohahela and Andringitra National Parks.
Following the prehistoric breakup of the supercontinent Gondwana, Madagascar split from the Indian subcontinent around 88 million years ago, allowing native plants and animals to evolve in relative isolation. Consequently, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot. As a result of the island’s long isolation from neighboring continents, Madagascar is home to various plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth. Approximately 90% of all plant and animal species found in Madagascar are endemic.
Anyone who is visiting Madagascar for the first time like us, will experience that people here live as if we had gone back in time for decades. If there weren’t smartphones, we wouldn’t think that we are in the 21st century. Maybe, therefore they are more honest, cheerful and calmer than we are.Their favourite slogan is „mora -mora”……..slowly-slowly ……here nobody ever hurries but somehow everything is resolved.
BUT WHO IS EDDY ?

“Unparalleled National Parks where nature hasn’t been ruined yet, so one can get a taste of what the Garden of Eden was like. Wonderful and cheerful people who are honest and friendly and don’t feel every minute that it’s just about your wallet. In addition, it is not yet a well-established place for travel agencies, so it is far from the main plagues of mass tourism. ” – László Bolgár (has been to the island three times)
