Madagascar, the world’s fourth largest island with an area of 592,800km², was once part of the ancient super-continent Gondwanaland and broke away from the Indian subcontinent about 88 million years ago. Owing to its isolation, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot with over 90% of its wildlife found nowhere else on earth. Henceforth, it is considered the ‘eighth continent’ and a paradise for nature lovers.
June 16-22: St-Pierre, Hiking in Volcano and Piton des Neiges & Cilaos
I like France and find its overseas islands scattered in South Pacific and Indian Ocean intriguing and special. La Réunion is a walker’s paradise with more than 1,000km of well-marked trails and a well-kept secret. In many ways, it is the most fascinating of the Mascarene trio (i.e. Mauritius, Rodrigues and La Réunion).
