Madagascar or the Republic of Madagascar is an island-country which is located in the Indian Ocean, off the Southeast African coast. The country consists of the island of Madagascar and several other peripheral islands.
It is considered the 4th largest island in the world. Madagascar is a popular hotspot for biodiversity as 90 percent of its wildlife is not found anywhere else on this planet.
The country covers an area of about 600,000 square kilometres. The country's highest peaks are present within three highland massifs: Maromokotro stands at 2,876 metres in the Tsaratanana Massif. Boby Peak at 2,658 metres in the Andringitra Massif is the second highest point.
In the east, there is a chain of man-made as well as natural lakes known as the Canal des Pangalanes. All of them are connected by canals which were built by the French long time back. The western and southern sideslie in the rain-shadow region of the central highlands.
They are full of spiny forests, dry deciduous forests, deserts and shrublands. The western coast of Madagascar comprises of many protected harbors which are prone to silting due high levels of erosion carried by rivers flowing from the western plains.
