TSINGY OF BEMARAHA
About 200 million years ago this unique landscape began to form. The limestone soil was pushed upwards, creating a plateau that was hollowed out by the heavy rains and over the years took on the present form of high limestone pillars.The integral reserve consists mainly of canyons, ravines, pristine forests, lakes and mangrove swamps, all of which have 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. Also in the north the limestone profiles describe rather gentle hills, while in the south extensive elevations limit access extremely. In the middle 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 grass savannah. Within the deep gorges, however, the vegetation is very humid with small tropical forests and many liana plants.
