Madagascar is the world’s fourth largest island covering an area of 587,041km2 with a diverse range of startling, stunning landscapes.
From the forested mountains of the north, the rainforest of the east coast, the steppe landscape of the centre to the dry desert of the south with its famous baobabs, Madagascar is an island with many different faces.
The tsingys of Bermaraha
The eerie, otherworldly landscape of Bermaraha with its jagged topography of limestone needles (tsingys) is a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Royal Hill of Ambohimanga
A sacred spot for the Malagasy people for over 500 years, the royal city was the religious capital, seat of royal dynasties and the royal burial ground for kings from the 16th to the 19th century.
The collective name given to the picturesque fishing villages of Ifaty-Mangily and Madio Rano on the southwest coast. Behind the villages lies the arid spiny forest of the Reniala Nature Reserve.
The Avenue of the Baobabs
A truly spectacular site the avenue of baobas lines the dirt road between Morondava and Belon’I Tsiribihina in western Madagascar. The trees are around 30 metres tall and more than 800 years old.
The small private island of Tsarabanjina, home to the laidback luxury of the Constance Tsarabanjina resort, is an islet of the Mitsio Archipelago off the northwest of Madagascar. White sand beaches and clear blue water surround an interior of tropical forests. The island is home to the tomb of the Sakalava kings of the Mitsio islands still honoured by locals today.
