The naturalist's ?promised land' Madagascar attracts visitors with its stunning scenery and endemic wildlife, from lemurs and aye-ayes to mantella frogs and sunbirds. From the Nosy Be archipelago to the enchanting coastal town of Fort Dauphin via the capital Antananarivo and the bizarre limestone plateau at Ankarana, Bradt's Madagascar covers all the national parks and protected areas, with itineraries to suit all interests and budgets. Author Hilary Bradt has guided mesmerised visitors on more than 30 trips to Madagascar and her personal anecdotes and unparalleled knowledge, combined with input from around 50 experts, makes this the most informative and indispensable guide on the market. More than 100 new hotels and restaurants are reviewed and there is a new section on travelling with children, a growing travel trend.
