Madagascar’s Natural Treasure

National Parks

5% of all known animal and plant species can only be found here in the National Parks of Madagascar. The trademark of the island is undoubtedly the lemurs, but calm, there are many stranger and unique creatures: the mysterious lemur-eating fossa (a small feline predator), the chameleons with the most spectacular colors, the strangest insects like the bizarre giraffe-necked weevils, hundreds of types of frogs, turtles with elegant stripes.
