The Tsingy de Bemeraha is the only single-site natural UNESCO World Heritage Site in Madagascar. It is a huge area of eroded karst limestone massif with narrow canyons, sunken forests and razor sharp pinnacles, similar to Ankarana in the north but much larger. Both are fascinating geological features found in few other destinations on Earth.

[Our escort guide] was excellent – he had amazing vocabulary and was always good natured, patient and attentive. He provided us with a great commentary to the country and proved to be a brilliant wildlife spotter. Wildlife highlights: seeing a streaked tenrec, snorkelling with green turtles, the pygmy chameleons, the biggest giant millipede I’ve ever seen, a group of indris without the crowds and hearing their calls, seeing new families of birds – vangas and couas…Everything was a complete treat – my binoculars got a complete workout.
