Antananarivo Madagascar Hyatt Hotel
Madagascar is a country surrounded by thousands of kilometres of spectacular wild beaches and an irresistible destination for adventurers and wildlife lovers. From stunning national parks to incredible hotels, here are some of the best things to see and do in Madagascar.
A special highlight is swimming in the ocean, a truly exciting and unique activity that should not be missed when visiting the country.
Lemurs are considered to be the ancestors of monkeys and are a species endemic to Madagascar, which is found in many parts of the country, especially in the north - east and south - west. The species Sifaka is very comfortable with humans, so don't be surprised if you find a lemur on your shoulder during a trip into the jungle. They are very intelligent animals and can be found on the ground, in trees and even on treetops, as well as in bushes and trees.
Hiking is the main attraction, with trails that take from a few hours to several days to master. The rock formations are stained with iron minerals with colourful rainbows, while they are covered by waterfalls and dense forests and meadows with unique flora and fauna. There are limestone and brittle rocks, which consist of fossilized shells, as well as sandstone and limestone.
Enjoy a tour of the religious buildings, then drive to Ranohira and spend the rest of the day at your leisure. Take a short hike or maybe visit a wine tasting, relax on arrival and cool off before setting off in the evening. When night falls, set off for an unforgettable night walk in the nature, where you will see lemurs, birds, amphibians and reptiles.
Minister Lalatiana praised the gesture of the Indian Embassy and said: "I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Indian Embassy for donating the books to the Ministry. "I am particularly pleased that India is present in the country section with books that promote India's culture, economy and history," the Minister added. Interested readers can register with the Indian Embassy and obtain books from the street library free of charge or return them to the Embassy for a free reading experience.
The Street Library will have a collection of more than 1,000 books from the Indian Embassy's collection. Events such as book signings, lectures, book presentations and book fairs and exhibitions will also take place there.
On this occasion, the Indian Embassy also donated a curated collection of over 1,000 books from the Indian Embassy collection, which were discussed by the General Manager of the Indian Embassy, Ms. Lalatiana, and the General Manager of the Hotel, Mr. K.K. Srinivasan. I would like to congratulate the Indian Embassy on the realization of this idea of a street library, "said Ms. Lal at the opening ceremony on Tuesday, 12 October 2016 at the Anantanarivo Madagascar Hotel.
She added that the street library will be an open cultural space accessible from the street and will be an opportunity to share the joy of reading with the Madagascan people who have a great interest in books. She also expressed the wish to increase the number of books in the library so that as many people as possible can use the reading.
We spent the day at leisure on one of the pristine beaches, snorkelling in the crystal clear sea and sampling the local cuisine. Afterwards we went out to sea to the coastal town of Ifaty, which is surrounded by lush forests with many wild animals, and through the beautiful mountains of the Madagascan National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The rest of the day was spent enjoying the culture of this country with a visit to a local museum, an art museum and a museum of local art.
A hotspot and ideal place for photographers is Avenue Baobabs in Kirindy, as these trees are found on the tropical island. These trees have been used on site for hundreds of years and are a relic of the time of the forests, which maintain their natural shape and shape, reflecting the geological history of the island. The huge trunks form a pool for animals and people and the rain catches the trees.
In his inauguration address, Ambassador Abhay Kumar of India said: "This cultural exchange is an important step in strengthening relations between India and Madagascar. To take cultural relations a step further, the Indian Embassy in Madagascar has set up the Street Library.
Founded in 1962, it protects land dominated by dramatic sandstone masses eroded by time and weather. The most famous of these is the spectacular mineral forest of Tsingy - Bemaraha, which is one of the largest rainforests on the west coast of Madagascar. It is dotted with long beaches of golden sand, where lush vegetation and volcanic reliefs are scattered across the lake. This rainforest is inscribed with the names of all the endangered species it supports, such as lemurs, elephants, leopards, gorillas, rhinos, tigers and elephants.
