About Madagascar

Madagascar is an island nation located off the coast of Africa in the western Indian Ocean. It is known as the fourth largest island in the world and attracts numerous visitors each year due to its unique and colorful wildlife and plant diversity.
As an island nation, Madagascar does not share land borders with any other country but has a maritime border with Mozambique. The capital city is Antananarivo, and the official languages are Malagasy and French.
Discovered by the explorer Marco Polo, Madagascar is famous for its remarkable biological diversity, making it one of the most significant countries in the world regarding biodiversity. Almost all of the plant and animal species found in Madagascar can only be found on this island. The island is mainly composed of plains and scattered forests, with the highest point being Mount Maromokotro, which reaches an elevation of 2,876 meters.
Madagascar has a population of approximately 24 million people, with the Merina ethnic group being the largest. Various other groups, such as the Betsimisaraka, Tanala, and Bara, also inhabit Madagascar. The country generally experiences a tropical climate throughout the year, with hotter and rainier conditions occurring between April and November. During this period, the island can experience excessive heat. From May to October, the climate is cooler and drier. If you plan to visit Madagascar,  choose a time outside of the period from January to the end of March to avoid the heavy rainfall that can negatively impact life on the island.
Regarding trade, Madagascar's economy heavily relies on agricultural products, with coffee, bananas, and cocoa playing a significant role. Sugar cane and vanilla are also among the most exported products from Madagascar.
Approximately half of the population in Madagascar follows Christianity, primarily due to the past actions of early missionaries from Europe. Other communities in Madagascar practice local religions, and a small Muslim population coexists.
Madagascar offers numerous options for dining. One of the most famous and preferred choices is "Malagasy bread," a rice cake. The country also offers delicious options like milk coffee served hot or cold, as well as seafood such as squid, shrimp, and octopus. If you prefer European cuisine, you can find tasty options from French and Italian cuisines in many places, especially in major cities and tourist centers.
