Jump to: navigation, search - a wiki about Madagascar

The name “MadaCamp” may indicate that this site is mostly about camping in Madagascar, however, this is far from the only topic that can be covered here. Instead, MadaCamp simply stands for everything about Madagascar presented within one campsite, so to speak. Anything about Madagascar can be published here and edited by anyone.
