Tsingy de Bemaraha is the one most peculiar landscape in Madagascar! You feel like a termite in a termite nest as you walk through the peculiar rock formations of the Grand Tsingy. Sometimes you have to physically climb, other times you have to crawl in...More

It's too difficult to explain your feelings and impressions in Tsingy! All pictures you can find in internet don't show you how amazing this place! Usually you see on pics just top of these sharp stones, and of course it's interesting. But, actually, your visit...More

After 3 days in taxi brousses, 2 days in a pirogue (canoe) down a river and 1 more driving to Bekopaka village, the visit to the Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park was spectacular. The Grands Tsingy were just awesome to climb and the views from...More

We really enjoyed our visit here. Tsingy is a truly unique place and we appreciated the fact that it serves as a refuge for wildlife (especially lemurs, which you will very likely see) in a country like Madagascar where environmental decimation is depressingly common. The...More

We visited Tsingy De Bemeraha in June and this park is just incredible with its unique rock formations. You cannot find anything similar anywhere else in the world. The long trail is approximatively 3/4 hours walk and you need to be a bit athletic but...More

Climbed to the top of the Grand Tsingy with help of excellent guide. Incredible views and fascinating geological formations. A highlight of our 2 week trip to Madagascar. Despite the time it takes to reach it, not to be missed

As far as geological formations go, this one is a stunner. The trek up and down sharp jagged rocks with some perilous drops is not for everyone though. It is quite hard work and if you're afraid of heights you may have an issue with...More

Once you mean Gorge excursion by pirogue you can buy it at the office close to Small Tsingi. Tip - skip the small Tsingi. Take Big in the morning and pirogue after lunch - so you'll save one day
