Take an ox cart through spectacular scenery and hundreds of years of botanical history at Avenue of the Baobabs, a red dirt road lined on both sides with ancient baobab trees. The giant trees along this 260 m (853 ft) section of the road draw tourists from all corners of the globe. Some of the sacred trees date back over 800 years; in the past, they stood as part of a larger forest, and early Arab travelers described them as ripped up and placed back into the earth upside-down. Reaching for the skies at 30 m (98 ft), the baobabs have a diameter of up to 11 m (36 ft) and circumference of up to 50 m (160 ft).

If you like Baobabs, don't miss Avenue of the Baobabs at sunset. Unforgettable moments, fantastic pictures. more »
Beautiful place to visit! Must if you are around Morondava. I recommend going in the morning , there are less people than in the sunset. The sunset was very beautiful but there were too many tourists. In the morning we were the only ones there. Around an hour from Morondava
No wonder this is a top attraction in Madagascar ... this is amazing. Beautiful at sunset, so make sure you get here in time to see it. Nice little bar where you can get a nice drink. Make sure to try the baobab juice.
