Everything was like a painting. I was there for sunset and sunrise and both were incredible. I like sunrise better as there were less people around. Last time it was only our group waiting for sunrise. However, during sunset you will see many people but...More

On our way to the Kirindy forest we stopped at the iconic Avenue of the Baobabs. This stand of Grandidier's Baobabs (Adansonia grandidieri) is as breath-taking and gorgeous as can be imagined, and you will find that the photos that you have seen do not...More

You'll need a 4x4 to get there. The road is not paved. Make sure you get there about half an hour before sunset and don't forget your camera. It can be quite crowded, but nevertheless, you should not let that spoil your fun.

This was a highlight of or trip. We arrived just before subset so got some pictures with the contrasting blue sky and then stayed for the beautiful sunset. It wasn't as busy as I thought it would be.

Every view of Madagascar includes these majestic giants and they don’t disappoint. We visited during the late morning and on sunset and the views we had will remain fond memories forever. Sunset was particularly memorable.

You can't go to the west without going here. It's only about 45 minutes from Morondava and only the last 15 minutes are on a dirt road. Sunset is gorgeous but the busiest time of day of course.

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!
