Well worth the trip to see these majestic trees. We missed the sunrise and the sunset the day before on our way to Kirindy, but got there around 8:30am and there was no one there. So we were able to wander around freely taking photographs...More

While visiting the Menabe region, no trip is complete without seeing this unique and very photographed sight. You can reach the avenue by car, taxi and even Tuktuk (Bajaj), about 40 minute drive outside of Morondava. Be aware that there are no hotels or restaurants...More

This was a highlight of or trip. We arrived just before subset so got some pictures with the contrasting blue sky and then stayed for the beautiful sunset. It wasn't as busy as I thought it would be.

Every view of Madagascar includes these majestic giants and they don’t disappoint. We visited during the late morning and on sunset and the views we had will remain fond memories forever. Sunset was particularly memorable.

You can't go to the west without going here. It's only about 45 minutes from Morondava and only the last 15 minutes are on a dirt road. Sunset is gorgeous but the busiest time of day of course.

When you google Madagascar this is what comes up, but the pics do no justice to the beauty of the space. You just have to go and see these ancient and majestic trees for yourself!

One of the most special and beautiful places I have ever been. About one hour drive from Morondava you come to the Allee des Baobabs. A sandy road with the most beautiful trees you have ever seen. As our guide told us there are 6...More

It did get quite buggy as and after the sun went down. I do not recall as many in the morning when we returned for sunrise. Definitely bring bug repellent -- and enjoy! The trees are just spectacular!
