Tsingy De Bemaraha

Located about 20km from the village of Bekopaka, Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve comprises a forest of 40-50 metre high limestone peaks, and is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is one of the highlights of any visit to Madagascar.
The Tsingy are razor-sharp pinnacles produced by the erosion of limestone massifs over millions of years. Steps, boardwalks, ladders, cables and suspension bridges have been installed with phenomenal expertise to form a pathway allowing tourists to explore the tsingy in safety.

The Tsingy shelters a startling array of wildlife: 11 species of lemur (including Verreaux and Decken’s Sifaka and Red-Fronted Brown Lemurs), 103 species of terrestrial and aquatic birds, 15 species of bats, 22 species of amphibians and a variety of reptiles. Pachypodiums and other strange succulents provide splashes of green amidst the grey limestone.

Head up the Manambolo River in a traditional dugout canoe known as a pirogue - the river cuts a spectacular gorge through the limestone on the southern boundary of the national park. Visit one of the caves filled with stalactites and stalagmites as well as a few human tombs from Madagascar’s first settlers, the Vazimba (approximately 5th century).
