Mikea National Park is about 120km north of Tulear (on the coast between Ifaty and Morombe), in the semi-arid south-western region. As such, rainfall here is very low, with precipitation occuring generally only on a few days each February. For the rest of the year, climate is mostly warm to hot, sunny and dry. The original habitat includes extensive areas of dense spiny bush (Euphorbia-didieraceae bush) interspersed with three species of baoababs, notably a stunted version of the largest, Grandidier's baobab. The park covers 184,630 hectares and is named after the mysterious, little known Mikea, among the few remaining people still practising a hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Aside from the otherworldly setting created by the spiny bush and baobab woods, there are miles of quiet, white sand beaches and rewarding sites for snorkelling.
