Essentials in Madagascar
Antananarivo: Madagascar's capital doesn't have a long list of "tourist sights" but the city is a great one to explore. It's worth checking out Rova, the Queen's Palace of the Kingdom of Imerina from the 17th century.
Tsingy de Bemaraha: This is the largest reserve on the island which features some pretty astonishing razor-sharp limestone pinnacles on a raised stone plateau. Truly stunning and an UNESCO WHS.
Avenue of the Baobabs: Head north from Morondava with a Madagascar car hire and you'll run into the most extraordinary stand of baobab tress. Some of the trees here are over 800 years old and tower 30m above your head.
