THE SOUTHERN RAIN FOREST

INTRODUCTION
While the southeastern area of Madagascar receives abundant rainfall, the extreme southwestern area hardly gets any rain at all. And yet some of the richest remaining rainforests are in the southern portion of the eastern mountain range. This is one of Madagascar's most diverse regions: lush virgin rain forests, majestic granite rock formations, as well as exotic flora and fauna on the eastern side, and beautiful vistas, endless beaches of immaculate sand dunes, and strange exotic plants on the western side. The South is noted for its vegetation of unique interest where tropical moist forest meets southern dry forest, and its southern rain forests include Ranomafana National Park and the majestic Andringitra.
