The Western Malagasy land has exceptional landscapes. Land of the Sakalava people, this area has been crafted by cosmopolitan influences, African and Comorian.
Sandy beaches and wide rocky bays pass by along the coast, while fertile valleys follow great rivers flowing out like blood into the Mozambique Channel. Verdant rice fields, tobacco fields, mangroves… An abundant vegetation is home to various species of birds, reptiles, sea turtles and many lemurs.
Inland, vast plateaux offer some rare humid and dense forest dots, and mainly grassy savanna punctuated with long baobab shapes. This region also welcomes two global heritage UNESCO sites: the famous karstic formations of the Tsingy of Bemaraha, and the Baobab Alley. Its climate is particularly warm and dry.
