Menabe Region, Madagascar - Photo by Marsel van Oosten
These baobab trees are of the species Adansonia grandidieri and are endemic to Madagascar. Baobab trees - about 30 meters in height and up to 800 years old - are known locally as renala (Malagasy for “mother of the forest”), are a legacy of the dense tropical forests that once thrived on Madagascar. The trees did not originally tower in isolation over the landscape of scrub but stood in dense forest. Over the years, as the country’s population grew, the forests were cleared for agriculture, leaving only the baobab trees, which the locals preserved as much in respect as for their value as a food source and building material.

Jellyfish Lake is one of 70 marine lakes on Eil Malik that was formed when the ocean receded over 12,000 years ago. After being trapped in this natural basin, the jellyfish that inhabited the lake gradually evolved without the ability to sting since there were no predators sharing the same waters. Now, daring snorkelers can fulfill their worst nightmares (or biggest dreams) by swimming among the jellyfish without being stung.
