Renowned for its unique wildlife, sun-kissed beaches, world-class dive sites and fascinating fusion of cultures, Madagascar is a one-of-a-kind charter destination. Floating in the Indian Ocean, 400 kilometres off the east coast of Africa, the island is seldom traversed by luxury yachts. But those intrepid travellers who venture off the beaten track to seek out its natural wonders and cultural riches will be rewarded with a yacht charter of a lifetime.
Madagascar luxury yacht charter guide
Set adrift off the Mozambique Coast, Madagascar has remained largely off-limits to superyachts. However, as more expedition yachts open up for charter, the possibilities to discover the island’s spectacular cruising grounds are on the up. Still, undertake your yachting vacation here and don’t expect to see another superyacht for days.
Madagascar has 5,000 kilometres of coast to discover, as well as a scattering of virgin isles. Many escape to these jewel-like islands for some rest and relaxation but the diverse landscapes and profusion of endemic flora and fauna (around 90 percent of the wildlife here can be found nowhere else in the world) also make a yachting vacation to Madagascar ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and animal lovers.
Superyacht itineraries in Madagascar
