SUCCULENTS OF MADAGASCAR – 13 DAYS
Madagascar has a botanical heritage of unparalleled richness; it is in itself a true biodiversity concentration! Aloes, Didieracea, Euphorbias, Kalanchoe… 95% of succulent species are endemic. Very present in the Great South of Madagascar, we also find them in the highlands, along the West Coast up to the Cape of Amber.

We recommend this circuit from mid-September to late October, but it can be done all year long.
