The Avenue of Baobabs is the quintessential icon of Madagascar dry forest west of the island. The giant Baobab trees stands tall over low brushes. You will see tourists stop by all time of the day, specially around sunset, for the iconic baobab silhouette. So...More

It is impressive indeed, but for those taking photographs, better to be on the site by early morning.

The baobab are very beautiful, and the avenue is the best place for photos. It's strange to think they were once part of a lush forest...all the slash and burn in the region is depressing to see. There's a bit of hassle - children may...More

There are 6 different endemic baobab trees in Madagascar, and only 2 more species grow outside of this amazing island, 1 in mainland Africa and 1 in Australia. Although you can see baobabs growing in other places on the island, the Avenue is definitely a...More

This is a must see in Madagascar. It is one of the most beautiful trees in the world. Not far from Morondava (15 km) and the best way is to see it at sunset. From the Tsingy trip. Recommended

The baobab trees are massive, ancient and majestic - an incomparable sight. Not only seen along the 'avenue' but also scattered in the surrounding landscape. They now stand isolated in what was originally a forested landscape. Of course they are a tourist attraction, and so...More

A large group of American tourists plus others spoilt it for us. We drove down the road and found a better place to see the sun set.

We first went to the avenue for the sunset. Beautiful lighting for pictures and amazing sunset behind the baobab trees. There were a few other tourists, but not many. We also went to the avenue the next morning on our way to Kirindy Forest. This...More

As a tourist you can fly or drive to Morondava on the West Coast, but the Avenue of Baobabs would be one of the primary reasons for a visit. Given the right conditions, you would not be disappointed at all, the 500-800+ year old Baobabs...More

We had the chance of stopping here twice and to enjoy the atmosphere. It is worth to spend some time walking around.

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!
