Your next adventure to a far-flung, tropical destination could be to Madagascar from as little as £452 return. As there are no direct flights from the UK, this Air France option via Paris (CDG) is about as good as you’re going to get.

Madagascar is the second-largest island nation in the world and boasts multiple beautiful national parks and reserves. The lemur is native to this stunning tropical island and was the inspiration behind the trilogy of fims aptly named “Madagascar”.

If beaches are more your thing, Nosy Be at the far north of the island is a tropical island paradise. It’s an absolute must-visit tiny island with soft white sand, turquoise water and amazing seafood
