The "Avenue of the Baobabs" is actually just the section of the unpaved north-south route between Morondava and Belo- Tsiribihina near the central west coast of Madagascar.  In this particular stretch, it passes between a dozen or so majestic old giant baobabs Adansonia grandidieri that grow next to the track.  At sunset, this is among the most scenic places in the country as the day's last golden rays strike the bloated trunks from the west.  The Kirindy Forest lies to the north of this point.
