The West


Back to Madagascar

The West

The western regions of Madagascar are drier than the east, and consequently large pockets of deciduous forest flourish here, harbouring a wealth of rare endemic wildlife. We recommend a visit to Morondava and also Mahajanga, one of Madagascar’s largest commercial ports, surrounded by deserted beaches and canyons.

Wonderful wildlife and beautiful beaches in Madagascar

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