Avenue of the Baobabs - a must see

Avenue of the Baobabs - a must see

Avenue of the Baobabs is one of Madagascar's most photographed monuments. Imagine a monumental line of baobabs, the highest of which is more than 30 metres tall, with zebu wandering among them. Some of the most beautiful scenery on the Island.

The Andasibe-Mantadia National park, a paradise for lemurs

On the road leading from the capital to Tamatave, the Andasibe-Mantadia National Park is famous for the indri which have found refuge there. These lemurs, which are the biggest in the world, spend their lives amongst the branches of the trees in this virgin forest and mark their territory with long cries that can be heard over long distances.

Between two Vezo fishing villages

Between two Vezo fishing villages

We've been driving along this rough track for a long time and it's opened our eyes to the raw beauty of a semi-desert Madagascar. Having got used to the arid charm of the bushy plains, we leave the octopus trees and the rainbow-coloured, native birds behind and enter the coastal strip where the Vezo people live and where isolation has preserved the traditions.

Photographing lemurs in Madagascar

Photographing lemurs in Madagascar

Chameleons, lemurs, baobabs and carnivorous plants: Madagascan species which are symbols of a genetic heritage that still puzzles biologists.
