Madagascar is simply breathtaking and a photographer’s dream come true. These beautiful images were taken on a trip across the magical island, taking in Fair Trade Tourism certified camps, hotels and lodges.

From ancient primary rainforests to the vast sweeping landscapes of the central highlands and the azure waters of the Mozambique Channel, the Red Island is ripe for exploration and adventure.
