Baobab, the iconic tree in Madagascar, with unusual branches referred as “ roots raised in the sky” is among the endemic trees of the country. 7 out of 9 species of Baobab also called Adansonia, its scientific name, can only be found in Madagascar, reason why Madagascar is also known as the country of baobabs. Baobab reaches about 5 to 30 meters in height, has a trunk diameter of 7 to 11 meters and has a lifespan of 800 years.

For many years, these strange trees became an enchantment for everyone that comes to visit Madagascar.
