Madagascar comprises a fragment of the African Plate, rifted from the vicinity of Tanzania at the time of the breakup of Gondwana some 200 million years ago. At that time Madagascar remained joined with India; moving east-by-south until the late Cretaceous (i.e. approximately 70 million years ago), whereupon the two land masses split apart.
