The otherworldly landscape of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed preserve is a lush mix of mangrove swamps and emerald-green forests studded with fingers of limestone rock and riven by deep gorges.
Make a special effort to see the dramatic Manambolo River canyon on the south side of the park. When it comes to wildlife, lemurs are the stars, particularly the endemic sifaka and ring-tailed varieties. Like these, many of the other creatures in the preserve have learned to adapt to the region’s fiercely dry climate.
Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve comprises karstic landscapes and limestone uplands cut into impressive ‘tsingy’ peaks and a ‘forest’ of limestone needles, the spectacular canyon of the Manambolo river, rolling hills and high peaks. The undisturbed forests, lakes and mangrove swamps are the habitat for rare and endangered lemurs and birds. Unesco
