Description:   Madagascar is a large (forth largest in the world) island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Mozambique. It is a botanist’s paradise as there are many species of plants and animals that are only located on Madagascar. The language itself is more closely related to Indonesian then it is to any of the African languages.
 
Useful Links:   http://www.madagascar-tourisme.com/ This is the official web site for the Madagascan Tourism Board. It appears to be a good site but is in French only. http://www.madagascar-diplomatie.net/article.php?article_id=48 This is the offical web site for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Madagascar. Again, the site is all in French. The only useful part of the site is the part that relates to Madagascan Embassies and Consulates abroad. http://www.madagascar-embassy.ca/contentang/acc_eng.htm The official web site for the Madagascan Embassy in Canada. Excellent site as it is in English and French. Very useful links.
