East Madagascar - Madagascar

The Eastern side of Madagascar includes Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Sainte Marie, and Masaolo Peninsular and National Park.

Differing to the West, which has calm seas due to being out of reach of the cyclones, the climate in the east can be formidable at certain times of the year. As well as causing a monsoon tropical climate with a rainy season, the anticyclone brings wind and waves rich in nutrients, giving the east coast – from the Masaolo all the way down to Andohahela in the south – a set of rich and diverse ecosystems, all brimming with wildlife. Add to this the length of time that this area has been geographically isolated by the ocean on the east and mountains on the left has given the east side of Madagascar one of the highest bio-diversities of endemic species anywhere on the planet.
