Madagascar - Western Madagascar (Chapter)
This is the Western Madagascar chapter from Lonely Planet’s Madagascar guidebook.
Madagascar’s western region is famous for its bizarre-looking tsingy (karst) that create the kind of landscapes described in sci-fi novels. It is also prime baobab country, with some of the most iconic specimens looking every bit like their folk nickname ‘roots of the sky’.
