Get up at 4 AM and go for the serenely beautiful sunrise. There are more interesting stands S of Morondova, but the Allee de Baobabs is a must see.

On the way to Belo/Tsiribihina, we stopped a bit early in the morning to take pictures of the majestic trees. On the way back to Morondava, we stopped again at 6 p.m. to take stunning photos of the baobabs against the sky - and of...More

Of all the pictures I took in Madagascar, the sunset pics got the most positive comments and were the most likely to be recognized. We came through the first time during the day on our way up to Kirindy. That was a good time to...More

We visited the Avenue both early in the day and again for sunset. Both times were worth it. Early in the day we pretty much had the place to ourselves but sunset was much busier. Both times were worth it? We were very happy to...More

We visited here with Remote River Expeditions and had a great experience. The guide took great care of us and we were the only ones there at sunset with our own folding chairs and cooler of our favorite cocktails. Thank you!

Of course this is a MUST SEE. We were there in December and the back ground was a lovely blue sky and later a glorious sunset. It’s a rough road (well track) to get there but no tourist would let that stand in their way.

Worked in the area of the Baobab valley so I had to go visit. An amazing experience with the humbling villagers who want for nothing. Because of that I re visited in order to give back something, which they so much deserved. Great chance to...More

Wonderful view at sunrise and sunset. Nothing really to do in Morondava except this place. If you go deep more inside, there is Baobab d'amor.

This is a must see experience if traveling to Madagascar. Sunset is the best time to be there for the fantastic pictures. It is hard to believe that the baobabs grew this way naturally, but they did. We enjoyed this and took so many great...More

We preferred sunrise - less busy - to sunset. If you have made it this far, you should get yourself out here, but it is just the Baobabs and lots of souvenir sellers. No loos, or other facilities. Sunset was crowded, with not everyone thinking...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!

I went with Adventure Associates from Australia. I cannot tell you how much costs to go to the Avenue, because I paid the whole 3 weeks tour as a package. Excellent operator, and you need local expertise very much.
