The baobabs

ForĂȘest of baobabs

Emblems of Madagascar, the baobabs will surprise you by their great height and majesty. Their ability to slide their roots into the tsingys along the seaside and to grow and anchor their huge bodies is quite fascinating.

Some of these are sacred for the population and receive offerings; heads of zebu, honey and various baubles.

You can discover them accompanied by a guide: to bring you good luck you should wear the traditional sarong, go round them anti-clockwise and never point a finger at them...
