Madagascar’s limestone towers have us in complete awe

A lot of people have Madagascar somewhere on their bucket list, for obvious reasons. The landscape is unlike anywhere else on earth and the wildlife is just as varied. We’ve just found another place in Madagascar that’s just so incredible, that we’re bumping this island nation up to the top of our bucket list.

Welcome to Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park in Madagascar’s Melaky region. This UNESCO World Heritage Site covers hundreds of kilometres and is characterised by its pointed needle-like limestone pillars. The word ‘tsingy’ is indigenous to the Malagasy language and means something along the lines of ‘where one cannot walk barefoot’. So keep that in mind if you ever go!

If you’re lucky enough to wander into these parts, expect to see 11 different lemur species, mongooses, bats, eagles, and iguanas. And expect to never want to leave – just looking at these photographs makes me want to pack my bags and head there!
