The island of the big trees.

After two trips to the island I am  ready to go back! Journey to the western and southern part of the Island of Madagascar. The island is not only rich in plant endemisms (plants that are only found in this place), but also unusual animals: Lemurs and Chameleons are almost exclusively found in Madagascar. Among the plants, the genus Adansonia is perhaps the most spectacular because of the size atteined by the large baobabs. Other genera include Aloe, Euphorbia, Didierea, Alluaudia, and Pachypodium.

Many other interesting plants grow in Baja:  Dudleya, Agave,  Fouquieria, Euphorbia, Beaucarnea,  etc. The scenery is spectacular, clear water, beaches, and of course, the visit to a few islands complete this magic trip! http://www.plantexpeditions.com/baja   Dates:   April 24th May 8th 2018 Mode: All inclusive, starts in San Diego, ends in Cabo.
