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

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

Loved this place but looked a little bit too touristy for me.. Lots of locals hanging around and insist that you buy something, could get really annoying. Everybody flocks here at sunset so you will find yourself surrounded by pepole..

Sunset at the Avenue of Baobabs is not a off-of-the-beaten path destination any longer. The place is full of vendors and every tourist in the area seems to stop here. In 5 minutes I was ready to leave, but I'm glad that I listened to...More

It was quite crowded here for every tourist wants to take a sunset picture among the baobab trees. The view reminded us we were indeed in Madagascar,dream became true! We also had some fun bargaining with the kids selling small souvenirs.

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!
