Photos Madagascar

In November 2015 my girlfriend and I travelled three weeks through the fascinating Madagascar. Very special on the ‘Red Island’ are the unique endemic animals such as lemurs, sifakas, chameleons, geckos, lizards, frogs, birds, ... Moreover there are varied landscapes such as dense rainforests, dry forests, savanna, huge baobab trees, tropical beaches with palm trees, rice terraces, unique rock formations and canyons ... The country has many colorful - but poor - people and everywhere you can still see traditional ox carts, old cycle and pulled rickshaws, dugout canoes, ...

We went from the capital to the east to the rain forests of Andasibe and Mantadia. Then we flew to the west coast and explored the tropical beaches around Morondava, the impressive baobab trees, the Kirindy forest and the unique rock formations of the Tsingy de Bemaraha. Then we followed the RN7, the main road to the south and along the way we explored the jungle of Ranomafana, the beautiful Anja reserve, the impressive canyons and rock formations of Isalo and we ended up on the coast in Ifaty. We spend long days in nature and we were able to spot and photograph a lot of wonderful animals.
