Tourist Attractions of Madagascar

Lemurs, baobabs, tropical jungles, deserts, trekking, diving: the Island of Madagascar is a dream destination for outdoor enthusiasts – and half the fun and reach these wonderful places. The trees and plants are equally impressive, not only the baobabs, the ravinal fanning (the traveler’s palm), hundreds of orchids and the thorny forests of the southern desert.
