Tour Details

Baobabs Avenue

About ten trees 30 meters high border this avenue, of the species Adansonia grandidieri, endemic to Madagascar. Baobabs over 800 years old, known locally as renala (in Malagasy for “mother of the forest”), are an heirloom of the dense tropical forests that thrived in Madagascar. The trees did not grow in isolation in this dry and bushy landscape but were part of a dense forest that has now disappeared (only 10% of primary forests remain in the country). Over the years, with the increase in the country’s population, forests have been cut down for agriculture, leaving only baobab trees, which locals preserve both out of respect and for their value as a source of food and materials for construction.

Kirindy NP

The Kirindy National Park is located in the Menabe Region, Kingdom of Sakalava, about 70 km south of Morondava on the edge of the Mozambique Channel. Kirindy is among the 20 new UNESCO Biosphere Reserves! A total of 669 representing 120 countries. Terrestrial National Park and RAMSAR site and BIOSPHERE RESERVE. it is the transition between the biodiversity of the West and the South: a dense dry forest that occupies 70% of the park, thorny thicket Didiereaceae and Euphorbiaceae, brackish coastline lake, and habitat of many species, birds, reptiles, and lemurs. Endemicity of biodiversity:97%.
