Photos from My Trip to Madagascar

If you’re planning your next vacation and want to visit an exotic island full of natural splendor and a stunning mix of wildlife and plant species, consider Madagascar.

The Republic of Madagascar is in the Indian Ocean, approximately 250-miles off the coast of East Africa across the Mozambique Channel. After Indonesia, Madagascar is the world's second-largest island country and the fourth biggest island on earth. If you follow my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48, you may know my family and I recently spent 10-days in Madagascar. We stayed at Miavana, a resort on a remote private island off the mainland, and took daily excursions by helicopter. We saw a host of animals - lemurs, chameleons, turtles, non-poisonous snakes, and colorful insects. We enjoyed delicious seafood including a yellowfin tuna caught, cleaned, and dressed by my grandson, Truman; and, we flew over interesting and diverse terrain. During the trip, our  photographer and guide, Marlon Du Toit of Tanda Africa Safari Co., captured the most stunning photographs using the latest in Sony equipment, including the 70-200mm F2.8 G Master Lens. This new lens is light, fast, and takes optically superior images. My granddaughter, Jude, and I loved using it. If you also enjoy photography, try it out - you'll love it too.
