Formerly a landlocked plateau in the center of Gondwanaland, Madagascar became marooned when that ancient landmass split into the island continents of Australia, Antarctica, South America and Africa. Separated by the Mozambique Channel from Africa’s eastern coast about 65 million years ago, Madagascar developed in isolation. Its natural history is unique and eighty percent of Malagasy plants and animals are endemic.

This Madagascar tour has been carefully designed with input from Daniel Austin to showcase the array of animals and plants that bless Madagascar today. Fauna and flora, complex habitats and human colonisation all combine to make Madagascar a powerful and worthwhile travel experience that you will never forget.

We hope you can join the Australian Museum Members on this exclusive tour.
