Best things to do in Toliara and sightseeing in Toliara
Fort-Dauphin - Toliara
We had the opportunity to meet Limbiraza (SORO) our guide for the day, who showed us around town, but what made this different, was the fact that he let us into his home, we met his whole family which consists of his Mom, Dad, 2 Uncles, 2 Aunts, his Wife, 2 kids and his brothers who all stay together, as they believe that having your family together caring for each other is worth more than all the money in the world. Afterwards we spend 4 hours playing, Ringe-Ringe Rosie’s, Under the bumble bush and Rock, Paper, Scissors with the local kids on the beach – priceless! We visited the villages were we gave out more of the stationary. He then took us to his home, walking through narrow paths, where we met his friendly family! SORO told us that they are very blessed to have their whole family living in such close proximity, as family is more important than all the money in the World
Anakao - Toliara
Excited for the festivities ahead, we spent Christmas day on the beaches of Anakoa, Madagascar, where we were blessed to be able to give stationary to the kids and Valentino an Italian teacher on the Island, helped us to distribute it. The day was filled with adventure and exploring, not long and the Zodiacs were speeding us back to the ship where we had a fun night of eating, drinking and dancing with new friends.
Morondava - Toliara
The Avenue De Baobab's in Morondava is heaven for any photographer. Thousands of tourists flock here to click these pretty trees. There are around 20-25 trees lined up. These tree are around 800 years old and form a legacy for Madagascar. Sadly, they are threatened although efforts are being made to conserve them.
