I was fortunate enough to travel back to Madagascar and work with the local agent Mercure Voyages.  During my week on the island, i was training two of the local guides.  Our training focused on International Tourists, ways to enhance customers experiences and general dealings with International guests.  The guides are very passionate about their island and were very keen to learn and explore the many different ways to satisfy guests.

This island has so much to offer, i thought i would share 8 quick facts about Madagascar with you.

  1. Most of Madagascar’s wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth!
  2. Lemurs are sacred in Madagascar.
  3. Madagascar was settled by Asians before mainland Africans.
  4. Before French colonial rule, Madagascar was ruled by a woman.
  5. Many nature plants of Madagascar have medicinal properties.
  6. There may have been an anarchist pirate utophia in Madagascar.
  7. Madagascar has strong human rights protections.
  8. The cuisine in Madagascar reflects its cultural diversity.

If you ever find yourself in Madagascar, do yourself a favor and contact Mercure Voyages who will make your stay relaxing and interesting.  They offer great customer service too!
