Madagascar is an island country which is officially known as the Republic of Madagascar. It is situated in the Indian Ocean off the south eastern coast of southern Africa. Madagascar is classified "a world apart" because of the uniqueness and rarity of its flora and fauna which comprises of numerous species of plant, insect, reptile, fish and mammals which are endemic to the island. Although Madagascar has miles of beautiful beaches, its greatest attractions remain the exclusiveness of its plants and animals. The capital city of Madagascar is Antananarivo.
