TSINGY DE BEMARAHA
About 200 million years ago this unique landscape began to form. The limestone seabed was pushed up, creating a plateau that was hollowed out by the heavy rains and over the years took on its present form of high limestone pillars.
The integral reserve consists mainly of canyons, gorges, untouched forests, lakes and mangrove swamps, all of which show an amazing variety of fauna and flora. The rate of endemic species is about 85%, 47% are even locally endemic animals!
The western slopes of the massif rise more gently and are mainly covered by dry deciduous forests, which are optimally adapted to the extreme climatic conditions.
In the north, too, the limestone profiles describe rather gentle hills, while in the south extensive elevation formations extremely restrict access. In the midst of this difficult to access vegetation lies the beautiful Manambolo Gorge, where you can see waterfalls, lemurs and magnificent, untouched forests.
The landscape here above the plateaus resembles a grassy savannah. Within the deep gorges, however, the vegetation is very humid with small tropical forests and many liana plants.
