Your Holidays in Madagascar
Madagascar is a huge island off the southern coast of Africa. It is the natural habitat of thousands of animal species, such as lemurs, which are not found anywhere else in the world, and is characterized by the presence of rainforests, beaches and coral reefs. Near the bustling capital, Antananarivo, is the archaeological site of Ambohimanga, a complex of royal palaces and burials that stands on top of some hills, as well as the Avenue of the Baobabs, a dirt road lined with ancient trees.
Located in the south-eastern part of Nosy Be, the Lokobe National Park was established to protect the last patch of primary rainforest on the island, where many rare plants and flowers, as well as exotic animal species, have developed undisturbed over the centuries. . Tourists who want to visit the reserve are offered circuits that enhance all its beauties, in full respect of the ecosystem.
One of the most iconic places in Madagascar is Route Nationale 8, dominated by around 300 centuries-old baobabs. Up to 30 meters tall and with a trunk of 3 meters in diameter, these trees can live for about half a millennium and store up to 300 liters of water. They are the symbol of the country’s biodiversity and, since 2007, the Avenue of the Baobabs has been recognized as a National Monument.
Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, different microclimates have developed within this park, which have created the ideal conditions for an extraordinary biodiversity to thrive, both from a plant and animal point of view. Here, in fact, different types of rainforest and numerous species of amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals can be observed.
On the southwest coast of Madagascar is the picturesque village of Anakao, mostly inhabited by fishermen and their families. On the wonderful unspoiled beaches of this village you can indulge in relaxation or keep moving by practicing various water sports. Furthermore, at certain times of the year, it is also possible to closely observe the whales crossing the Mozambique channel.
The capital of Madagascar is a lively metropolis, with numerous points of historical, architectural and cultural interest, two cathedrals, dozens of churches, a mosque and a university campus. Built on three levels, from bottom to top, are the center, the intermediate level and the old city, which houses the most beautiful palaces and the residential area of the nobles who once lived on the island.
