Madagascar is also well-known for the Alley of the Baobabs or simply The Avenue. It is a group of 20 to 25 majestic baobab trees in the Menabe region of western Madagascar. These 30-metre high trees line up a dirt road between Belon’i and Morondava. This unique landscape have enticed many travellers to fly to Madagascar. Another interesting place to visit in Madagascar is the Zahamena National Park which encompasses a land area of 423 square kilometres. The national park is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Rainforests of Madagascar which is composed of 13 areas located in Madagascar’s eight national parks. For a bit of culture, visit the Rova of Antananarivo which is a royal palace complex in Madagascar. The royal palace once served as the home of the royals of the Kingdom of Imerina as well as the rulers of the Kingdom of Madagascar.
