MADAGASCAR - Repoblikan'i Madagasikara / République de Madagascar

Madagascar, Officially the Republic of Madagascar (Malagasy:Repoblikan'i Madagasikara French: République de Madagascar), and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Southeast Africa. The nation comprises the island of Madagascar (the fourth-largest island in the world), as well as numerous smaller peripheral islands. Following the prehistoric breakup of the supercontinent Gondwana, Madagascar split from the Indian peninsula around 88 million years ago, allowing native plants and animals to evolve in relative isolation. Consequently, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot; over 90% of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. The island's diverse ecosystems and unique wildlife are threatened by the encroachment of the rapidly growing human population and other environmental threats.



These two beautiful covers are sent by my good friend Anta from Antsirabe, Madagascar. The covers posted on April 12, 2017 and I received in my hands on May 05, 2017. Madagascar had issued a number of thematic stamps earlier, still they issue but very limited. Their postal service known as 'Paositra Malagasy' , serves very good service through out the country. Thank You Anta for the big help to get a perfet cover from Madagascar.

Madagascar, one of the rarest country for cover collectors. These beautiful cover sent by my good friend Anta from Madagascar. The covers posted on July 06, 2016 and I received them in my hands on August 04, 2016 . The blue UPU barcode labels make them more beautiful. Registered letters are not common from Madagascar because of its high postage rate. Thank You Anta for the big help and beautiful covers.
