The Highlands


Back to Madagascar

The Highlands

The Highlands form the central hilly region of Madagascar, dominated by the city of Antananarivo. To the south of Antananarivo, the highlands provide wide open spaces dotted with enormous granite heads. Here is found the town of Antsirabe. Healing springs and mysterious deep volcanic crater lakes have long attracted visitors to this region.

Wonderful wildlife and beautiful beaches in Madagascar

I had an incredible time in Madagascar. Can’t believe it is all over!
