We visited the Great and Little Tsingy National Park. The path was more difficult at the Great Tsingy but it was so unique and it must not be missed if you can. I enjoyed the trek to both areas and the view was splendid. The narrow canyons, razor edge needles and the suspension bridges are truly amazing. The guides are... More

When visiting Madagascar, two 'must see' for me were the Avenue of the Baobobs and Tsingy which I had seen in numerous specials and documentaries. I was visiting in April when my friend was on spring break in Madagascar. I agree with another reviewer here, Sherman Shark, that it is a difficult time to visit! The "roads", dear lord, the... More

We hired 4x4 car from Morondava. It takes about 8 hours to get to Bekopaka. Two river crossings. Stayed in Tanankoay bungalows. In the morning we took the longest and hardest of tracks with our guide Augustine who spoke very good English and had good knowledge of flora and fauna. It was very hot, something like 29 C. We carried... More

We rented a car with the driver from Morondava to get there. According to the guides you can get there till more or less 1st of December, when the wet season starts and roads become inpassible. We went there at the end of November and it did not rain at all during out visit. In Morondava there are guides who... More

Again another site in Madagascar that will stay with me for ever! Not easy to get to but we both flew over it and trekked in certain (allowed) parts. Relatively unknown and far from it all means you're pretty much on your own by the time you get there; at least we were; and wow the atmosphere makes you wonder... More

Does anyone know if it is possible to get here in December? Lonely planet says April to October is the best time to go/the roads are most accessible. But is it still possible after October? Limited info on the net...thanks heaps!

Amazing landscape! 10 hours to travel 285km! Bad roads! Slow moving on 4x4 roads. Away from it all! Fantastic reptile and bird life. Good food & Accomodation.

Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve is the one of many attractions of Madagascar. I think it is the second (after Baobab Alley) place worth to visit there. It is impossible to describe - you have to be there, see it and touch it :-)

We tried to visit the Tsingy de Bemaraha middle of May 2012 and did not succeed due to muddy roads. There were daily cars heading for the Tsingy, some of them succeeded, most of them did not. None of them could visit the Big Tsingy. We learned from the people in a village about 100 km before the Tsingys (coming... More

If you ae going to Madagascar I recomend the guide Nolavy (olamadatrip@yahoo.com) and his companion Jimmy for the ultimate Malagassy experience. Theyre friendly, speaks good english, very efficient, affortable, knows the spots and people well, basically all around great guides. Madagascar is an amazing country, even more amazing with the help of these fine gents. 10/10 !
