Obviously like any major attraction it is full of tourists and photographers, me being one of them and therefore the scene is slightly spoilt but this is a must see and quite iconic when visiting Madagascar. Take it for what it is and enjoy.

The baobabs look stunning in this location, as well as at other spots for miles and miles along this same bumpy road heading north toward the Tsingy. The baobabs stand out like sentries that mourn for the rest of the trees that have been burned...More

It was great to see these amazing trees though the "Avenue" itself was shorter and less impressive than I expected. Seeing the trees scattered around the surrounding plain was almost as impressive - though the sunset photo ops are striking.

Not to miss this attraction. Three species of Baobabs obvious in this area. The sunset is especially magical. Some of the local children love their picture taken and being shown the digital images. No "tips" expected. There is a very good viewing area for the...More

Something like 50 meters of Babi and along the road. Better to watch on sunset. It's not a park actually so once locals decide to chop trees - they will do it. But in nearest future it's all yours to visit. If you go there...More

I have been a frequent visitor to Africa since 1999 and always been a fan of the baobabs - to me they are an unequalled African icon. I have never had the chance to learn so much about these gentle giants or to take such...More

Loved seeing these huge big trees. We hired a car from Antananrivio and it was brutal but worth it.you might be better flying to Morondova.

Fabulous tall baobabs, clustered together in this iconic place. There are handmade souvenirs if you want them. Beware of the roadside food in Madagascar, though, I'm sure it's what upset me!!

It did get quite buggy as and after the sun went down. I do not recall as many in the morning when we returned for sunrise. Definitely bring bug repellent -- and enjoy! The trees are just spectacular!
