Forests and Wildlife of the Menabe Region. The Amazing West and South. The second item on the bucket list for many travellers is baobabs trees – the ‘upside down tree’. On our Baobab Quest we go beyond the Avenue of the Baobabs for a closer look at these strange and wonderful sentinels in the south-western region of Madagascar. We experience a full range of amazing baobabs: towering giants to stunted miniatures to seemingly psychedelically painted trees straight out of the London and the 1960’s.
