What a great adventure climbing ladders, traversing the pinnacles harness to a steel rope, crawling through tight gaps in the rocks. On this occasion we saw no lemurs however talking to other travellers said that they did see them later in the day. It is...More

The pictures of the stones and mountain top are magnificent, but the greatest thing is you climb up the mountain with your arms and legs almost vertically. The guide with us was very familiar with the rocks, even a couple of steps I couldn’t reach...More

It is not easy (and cheap) getting to the Tsingy....but once you are there it is absolutely worth it. Great place. The trip itself is interesting, as you come along little villages on the way and scenery with majestic baobabs. Our guide, Roberto (owner of...More

We spent two days to do basically all tours that were possible - it takes a very long day from Morondova to get here, so we wanted to experience the Tsingy to the fullest. And it is well worth it. Both the big and small...More

Nowadays with climate change maybe early Nov but the locals told me the road becomes impassable and everyone hunkers down. I would plan something else like ile ste Marie or Andasibe as a backup plan
Where did you hire your tour for this? Any help to find this amazing place would be helpful. Thanks! :)
