Madagascar National Parks
The Tsingy




In the west, rocks rise up in thorns spread as far as visible, on a site of 150.000 hectares. It is the complete reserve of the Tsingy of Bemaraha which is part of Unesco world heritage since 1990.

This reserve, the largest of Madagascar, is bristled with caristic eroded peaks, the tsingy, in the middle of a chalky tray. The Tsingy formed itself 160 millions years ago, when Madagascar parted from the Gondwana. The continental drift raised an immense and impressive chalky plate. It is the history of the Ankarana, born under the sea, hundred millions of years ago and propelled to the the massif free air thanks to the tectonic movements. The erosion carved the limestones to the sharp crests that are the Tsingy.

The Tsingy are for scientists, environmentalists, nature lovers or curious "the" site to discover. And for good reason, this reserve shelters 90 varieties of birds, 8 species of reptiles and 10 species of lemurs. All are endemic. To the heart of this dry forest, endemics vegetations too are waiting there to be admired!

You can find our Tsingy at BemarahaNamoroka
